Meshuggah cancels shows following injury

Meshuggah has been forced to cancel their upcoming Scandinavian tour dates as a result of problems with drummer Tomas Haake's right foot/leg, which are actually the result of a herniated disc in his back. Surgical options are currently being sought. Haake had the following to say: "To all Scandinavian Meshuggah fans that have bought tickets to see the upcoming shows – the whole band is sorry about this, but we need to sound and play our best when you guys come out to see us! With this music there's really no room for half-measures and sloppy bassdrum work! But that's what's happening with this herniated disc – it messes with my control of my right foot and even though it's possible to get through a show, it just sounds like crap as my right foot/leg won''t really do what I mean for it to do – which is VERY frustrating to say the least!"
