Two bands have been forced to close due to an anthrax ring being found in their hearts.
The band Anthrax have closed down, saying it is due to “a number of circumstances” after the discovery of an anthracite band ring at their Edinburgh venue.RTE understands that the band’s manager, Andrew Kynaston, and guitarist Alex Mearns have also been forced into temporary accommodation in Glasgow.
Ana Maria’s guitarist, Graham McEntee, and bassist Ryan Suter, both from Edinburgh, are still at the venue.
The closure of Anthrax follows a string of other recent closures across the UK.
Last year, a record-breaking six days of rain washed away many of the band members’ home and car, including their hotel room.
Earlier this year, the band were forced to pull out of London’s O2 Arena following a mass scare.
