Revocation's David Davidson unable to shred due to broken wrist, continues tour on vocals
Dave Davidson, the guitarist and vocalist of technical death metal band Revocation, has suffered a broken wrist during a concert in Cincinnati earlier this month. Despite the setback, Davidson has committed to finishing the rest of the band's tour with Morbid Angel on vocals alone.
The injury is unrelated to the tragic incident at the Morbid Angel concert in IL where one fan died due to a roof collapse that injured many more.
His statement reads:
"As many of you have noticed, I haven't been playing guitar the past few nights on tour. I took a gnarly fall while performing on stage in Cincinnati when I tripped over a cable. I fell backwards and instinctively threw my wrist back to break my fall, but unfortunately I broke my wrist in the process. I could tell something was wrong as soon as I stood up but I ended up finishing the set and was hoping it was just a sprain. Got checked out the next day and the x ray showed I did in fact break my wrist, doctor said I won't be able to play for the next 6-8 weeks which is a total bummer but I've decided to soldier on, pull a Hetfield and finish the rest of the tour on vocals. Come out to the rest of the dates and dust off your air guitars, I could use a hand with the solos."
