Raging Speedhorn Frontman To Sit Out Skindred & HRH Dates

The show must go on!

Raging Speedhorn co-vocalist Frank Regan has been ordered by doctors to rest and will not be joining them on their upcoming UK run with Skindred or their appearance at HRH Metal. Regan’s spot will be filled by RSJ vocalist Dan Cook (frankly, we can’t think of anyone better to fill Frank’s shoes).

Sadly, the two Speedhorn shows scheduled for The Black Heart in March are to be moved to later in the year.

Guitarist Jim Palmer had this to say on the announcement:

“Unfortunately, due to doctors ordering immediate rest, our brother Frank Regan won’t be with us on our stint with Skindred and the HRH Metal Fest. We will have a stand in to help us out for these shows – that’ll be RSJ’s Dan Cook – but after those dates we will be ceasing all live performances until Frank gets the go ahead from the doctors to return.

We don’t want to go into details, we don’t want to go public with anymore information than this. Please respect our privacy in this matter. We feel that continuing any further than these shows without Frank is not an option. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes and hope you understand.”

The band, who cancelled a handful of dates at the end of 2016, have stressed that they are not splitting up, nor is Regan leaving Raging Speedhorn and that once he is 100% physically fit and cleared by doctors he will be rejoining the band.

The band and Frank Regan have asked for privacy in the matter. Whatever happens, we wish both Frank and Raging Speedhorn all the very best!

Raging Speedhorn will still appear at the following dates with Skindred:

Jan 31st – Brighton – Concorde 2
Feb 2nd – Derby – The Venue
Feb 3rd – Edinburgh – Liquid Room
Feb 4th – Inverness – Ironworks
Feb 5th – Carlisle – Brickyard
Feb 6th – Stoke – Underground (headline show)

The band’s latest record, Lost Ritual, was released on July 15th 2016 and received glowing praise from fans and critics….including ourselves, read Worship Metal’s glowing review of Lost Ritual here!
