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.
The Eli Young band will play the first of their new tour dates with bands in Australia in January, but the band has been on a tear since then and has become one of the hottest acts on the planet, with their new album released in March.
The band has a loyal fan base and is set to headline a number of festivals this year including Reading and Melbourne’s The End.
“It’s been a great run for us, it’s been awesome to be part of it and it’s just been a massive honour to be a part of,” Eli frontman Michael Worsham told News Corp Australia.
“We have such a huge amount of people that follow us and they support us on a daily basis.”
So, for them to see us on stage with the band and the support, it means so much.
“The band is also gearing up for their first major Australian tour of 2016, with a new EP to release on February 13.
They are the latest act to hit Australia, following the release of their album, “Totally Fucking Awesome”, in March last year.
It was also a big success, with Australian audiences turning out for the first time for their second album, The End, in November last year and the follow-up, “The Last of Us”, a year later.
