High on Fire during SXSW (more by Greg Cristman)
High on Fire

"High on Fire would like to thank everyone involved with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival for the opportunity to be a part of this year's tour," said the band in a statement. "We regretfully will have to bow out as our friend and bandmate begins his recovery, but very much appreciate having been asked to be a part of this summer's festival run."
And with that statement, High on Fire have exited their previously discussed appearance on said tour. Best of luck to Matt Pike, who we last (for a while?) saw at Scion Rock Fest as part of Sleep. No word as to what that means for the NYC shows scheduled on that tour.

Evoken have signed to Profound Lore and are readying their new LP Atra Mors for release. The NJ funeral doom crew will release the long-player on July 31st and the record features eight new tracks from the crew including "An Extrinsic Divide", which is available for streaming below.

On a completely different note, Sick Fix will release Vexed via A389 Records, another slab of hardcore fury from the band featuring a member of Magrudergrind. Stream the new track "Boudica" below.

godspeed matt pike.

That's a difficult picture to look at of him. I hope he's all right. BV - maybe take that pic down?

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2012 11:31 AM

How does that picture look any different from any other picture of Matt Pike?

Yeah he even has a shirt on lol

I think its a great picture of Matt Pike. Its basically him tuning his guitar by ear, and during Off!'s set. I think it captures what a great musician he is.

If there was anything negative or insensitive about the picture, I would take it down in a second, but this speaks to his amazing abilities as a guitarist.

Posted by BBG | June 8, 2012 12:02 PM

Take some time and take care of YOURSELF.

Best of luck...we wait for your return \m/

Posted by TXn | June 8, 2012 12:21 PM

For the record, Matt happens to really like this photo and fully approved it.

Posted by greg C | June 8, 2012 12:32 PM

Yeah, that's in really bad taste to take of photo of him like that. Matt with his shirt finally on, and all. The nerve of some people.

get well.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2012 12:40 PM

That is a great photo.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2012 1:09 PM

I take it back. I don't think I was looking hard enough. At a quick glance it just looked like he was about to pass out. My bad.

Posted by 11:31 | June 8, 2012 1:35 PM

This pretty much means that he'll be dead soon. Who cares? No one ever forced him to put that shit in his body.

2:31 - There's only one asshole on this thread (2:00) and he's probably just a bored office drone who's trying to get a rise out of {you}. You're right about the inanity guy, who's now edged out D as the worst of the BV commenters.

@2:00 That's not very nice! Also enough already with the YTIN.ASNIL posts!! Whoever you are you are an anonymous loser who must have no life but to troll every single Brooklyn Vegan post and then post YTIN.ASNIL like it so fucking funny!!! Perhaps the first time it was but now its tired and old like you. Get off the fucking computer and enjoy the actual outside world.

I heard Matt had gotten to the point where he could only find a vein in other men's penises.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2012 4:22 PM

Also you the anonymous person with all the sausage posts!!!! We get it! You don't like METAL! Good for you! Why don't you actually leave a constructive comment under a posting for some music you actually care about. Enough already with the sausage comments. They are both old and tired just like you.

Posted by Eric | June 8, 2012 4:27 PM

Also YTIN.ASNIL Posse = Anonymous losers

Eric, it was your turn to take out the garbage last night. That means no car for a week. Make sure you're home early tonight. Daddy needs his feet rubbed.

Mom, don't embarrass me in front of my only friends!

Posted by Eric | June 8, 2012 5:45 PM

YTINAS.NIL. saved me!

YTINAS.NIL. Showed me the light!

YTINAS.NIL. healed my wounds!

The prayer of YTINAS.NIL. goes like this;

YTINAS.NIL., grants the power to cleanse the Earth! May they see your truth before you take from them what they will not give. Let them weep for themselves when your truth is revealed.
YTINAS.NIL. has existed since the beginning. It will always exist in some form or another.
YTINAS.NIL. never ends.
YTINAS.NIL. is never lost

Mr. Pike should incorporate YTINA.SNIL in his recovery. He is the ONLY way.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2012 6:46 PM

6:04: Your words are full of wisdom. Praise him.

YTINASN.IL is life.

One day he will march from New Jade Garden Restaurant to MSG. All who will witness will be saved.
