This past January, HIGH ON FIRE was forced to cancel its U.S. tour with TOKE and YEAR OF THE COBRA due to another medical emergency suffered by the band’s frontman, Matt Pike. The trek was scheduled to kick off on January 10 in Atlanta, Georgia and wrap on February 1 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
This marked the second tour HIGH ON FIRE had scrapped in less than three months. Last fall, the Oakland, California-based outfit pulled out of a trek with MUNICIPAL WASTE due to “a medical emergency culminating in the partial amputation of one of [Pike‘s] toes,” the band said at the time.
HIGH ON FIRE was honored with a Grammy in the “Best Metal Performance” category in the pre-telecast ceremony at the 61st annual Grammy Awards, which was held on February 10 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. HIGH ON FIRE was nominated for “Electric Messiah”, the title track of its 2018 album.
“Electric Messiah” was released in October via Entertainment One (eOne).
Last fall, the band completed a European co-headlining tour with ENSLAVED.
