Metalcore favorites Black Veil Brides are being forced to cancel an upcoming gig due to injury. The weirdest part? It's not the fault of any of their crazy stage antics (or so we think). 

Drummer Christian Coma has suffered an "unforeseen injury": a torn ligament in his hand. The group is hoping for a speedy recovery and have shared a statement via Facebook

Right now, it's looking like they're only being forced to cancel their Thursday (Oct. 22) show at the Majestic Ventura Theater in Ventura, California. We'll let you know if that changes.

The band wrote:

We are sorry to announce that due to an unforeseen injury we will not be able to perform in Ventura. Our drummer, CC, has been fighting through a torn ligament in his hand which has been made worse by the current tour and travel schedule. We will be returning to Los Angeles for him to see a specialist to heal his hand to the best of his abilities. It has been suggested by the doctor that we give him a few days off before he returns to the stage in Santa Ana. We intend on playing both the Orange County and Sacramento shows to finish off the run, if his injury permits. Again we apologize for the inconvenience and will make up the show at a later date, however at this point we just cannot take the risk of him exasperating an injury that could render him unable to play in the future. Please send your positive thoughts and good vibes his way as he deals with this pain.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery. While you've got BVB on the mind, read all about frontman Andy Biersack's upcoming solo project here and here. There are some pretty surprising collaborations!
