Florence And The Machine - Malfunction In The Machine As Florence Welch's Voice Breaks Down

Passing ships be worried, human foghorn Florence Welch of Florence And The Machine fame has lost her voice! That's right, one of the loudest and distinctive voices in current UK mainstream music has had to pull out of a couple of shows after suffering what she claims is a "vocal injury". Welch was due to be playing shows in Spain and Portugal this coming weekend but has been forced to withdraw. A statement read "I've sustained a vocal injury and been told I cannot sing for a week - seriously I felt something snap, it was very frightening"
Continuing, Welch said "Unfortunately this means I will not be able to perform at Benicassim and Optimus Alive festival this weekend. I'm so sorry to all the fans, I was desperate to still perform, but was told without question not to, so as not to do permanent damage." Bad news indeed, with the news having a haunting echo of the ailment that Adele suffered that ended up putting her out of action for much of the back end of last year.
In better news for Florence And The Machine though, they look set to be topping the UK singles charts this weekend, with 'Spectrum (Call My Name)' currently sitting top of the pile after midweek sales.
