King Diamond Drops Off Hell & Heaven Festival Following Recent Surgery

King Diamond has cancelled his March 15 performance at the Hell & Heaven Metal Fest in Mexico City, Mexico. The frontman commented:

“I was recently advised by my doctor to have surgery done for an issue, which, if not done right away, would have prevented me from flying. We did not expect to have any complications after the surgery, but my healing is slower than anticipated, and I’ve been advised to ‘forego air travel until his healing stabilizes and additional risks are minimized.’ Unfortunately and regretfully, this means that we cannot make it this weekend to play at the Hell & Heaven Festival. We love playing in Mexico and can’t wait to get a chance to make this up to you. Til then, stay heavy.”

Micawber Cover King Diamond’s “Welcome Home”

Micawber have released a cover of King Diamond‘s “Welcome Home.“ Leighton Thompson commented:

“We listen to a lot of music on the road, of course. What else is there to do? And more than a handful of times each drive, someone in the van will yell “Yo, we should fuckin’ cover this!”. King Diamond was on, we all yelled in unison like the stars aligned or some shit, and so we fuckin’ covered it. We’re fortunate to all live super close to Carp Town Studios where we recorded our albums ‘The Gods of Outer Hell‘ and ‘Beyond the Reach of Flame‘, so we swung by with some beers and laid it down.”
