Bring Me The Horizon have said they are working out plans that will allow them to return to Phoenix and Las Vegas later this year, after they were forced to cancel shows in the two American cities this weekend after frontman Oli Sykes ruptured his right vocal cord.

Sykes said in a statement on Twitter this weekend: “I’m gutted to announce we have to cancel the remainder of our American tour. I’ve ruptured my right vocal cord and I’ve been told that if I don’t rest it immediately, I’m in serious danger of doing permanent damage”.

“I’ve been trying my best to fulfil our commitments”, he went on, “as I really hate letting you guys down, not to mention these shows have literally been the most fun ever. But at this point, me singing in this state would be the equivalent of a footballer running on a broken leg”.

The frontman concluded: “We are working on plans to come back to Phoenix and Las Vegas this year to make it up to everyone who missed out”.
