Between the Buried and Me’s Dan Briggs Suffers Breakthrough COVID-19 Infection, Will Miss Upcoming Shows


Between the Buried and Me have issued the following statement:

“Well, we ALMOST defied the odds and made it through this tour with no issues.

“Unfortunately, and in spite of taking every feasible precaution possible, Dan tested positive for a breakthrough case of Covid-19 after our Fort Lauderdale show. His symptoms are mild, and he will be fine. The rest of us tested negative and have tested negative each day since ????????

“Obviously, this means Dan will miss tonight’s show in Nashville and the two shows in Charlotte. It’s worth mentioning, however, that the Danimal is a beast untamable by any earthly mechanism and he refused to let this misfortune prevent his sonic thunder from being on full display. So, while quarantined in his hotel room, this savage monster recorded all of his bass and keyboard tracks for the entire set. While you will not see him on stage, you will no doubt bear witness to the aural splendor of his virtuosic bass guitar stylings.

“We apologize to all our wonderful fans for this hiccup, but we are committed to honoring our commitment to y’all by playing these shows, so long as we can safely do so without jeopardizing anyone’s well-being.

“Stay safe, and we hope to see y’all at the gigs!”

MetalSucks wishes Briggs a speedy recovery! We’d also like to remind our more skeptical readers that your chances of contracting or being hospitalized due COVID-19 are greatly decreased if you’re vaccinated.

Affected dates:

09/15 Nashville, TN – Marathon Music Works [Tickets]
09/16 Charlotte, NC – Underground [Tickets]
09/17 Charlotte, NC – Underground [Tickets]
