High On Fire - Pull Out Of Mayhem Festival

Looks like the biggest reason to go the 2012 Rockstar Energy Drink and Tooth Paste Mayhem Fest had to bail out... From an official press release posted up on their Facebook page:

Oakland, CA metal band HIGH ON FIRE has announced that it will be forced to miss this summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival as front man and guitarist Matt Pike enters treatment for alcohol rehabilitation. The award winning power trio (also featuring drummer Des Kensel and bassist Jeff Matz) will put its scheduled touring plans on hold indefinitely as Pike takes the necessary steps towards regaining his health.

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."

Hopefully Pike can master the 12 steps like he has the 12 strings... or however many he has on his custom First Act.

And if you do have a ticket at least you can still see Slayer and Motörhead at the fest.
