Hate Eternal founder injures hand, band drops tour

Hate Eternal guitarist Erik Rutan is currently unable to perform due to a hand injury. As such, the group has been forced to drop off the ill-fated Metal Alliance Tour (now a Deicide headliner). Here's the official word:
"An update re: Erik's hand injury... "Due to the nature of the injury and persistent swelling, the doctor has advised Erik to not use the hand at all for the next 4-5 days minimum. As such, this spells the end of the Deicide/Metal Alliance tour for Hate Eternal. "The immediate plan is to get back to Tampa and have Erik's hand reevaluated again, and figure out when he can play again. "Plans are in the works for a fall tour, and we'll be doing our best to hit the places we're missing this week. We'll update you all on that just as soon as we have news. "Thank you all for your patience, understanding and well-wishes. We're looking forward to seeing you all on the road again this fall."
