Derek Miller Fractures Arm, Sleigh Bells Cancel, Reschedule Dates

Sleigh Bells

Sleigh Bells were forced to cancel dates at both Midpoint Music Festival (Sept. 27-29 in Cincinnati, OH) and Pygmalion Music Festival (Sept. 27-29 in Urbana, IL) after guitarist Derek Miller suffered a skateboarding injury.

Miller took to Twitter to provide details of the injury and apologize for the cancellations: “Apologies for canceling Pygmalion & Midpoint. I fractured the radial bone in my right arm at a skate park in Tequesta, FL….A few other shows have been rescheduled as well. My arm is healing well but we gotta play it safe so I don’t fuck it up some more.”

The band released a statement saying, “Sleigh Bells want to apologize to their fans for these changes, and hope to get back to both Champaign-Urbana and Cincinnati in the near future.”

All dates of Sleigh Bells’ updated tour schedule are listed below. The band’s critically adored sophomore album, Reign of Terror, is available everywhere. Check out the band’s newest video for “End of the Line” to get you pumped for when Sleigh Bells hit your town.
