Six Feet Under - Six Feet Under Axe Australia Dates After Drummer's Accident

Rockers Six Feet Under have pulled out of Australia's Soundwave Festival after the band's drummer was injured in a dirt bike accident.

The death metal stars were due to fly Down Under to play five Soundwave gigs across Australia, sharing the bill with acts including Metallica, Linkin Park and Paramore.

However, Six Feet Under has bowed out of the event after Kevin Talley hurt himself while on his dirt bike.

A statement from Soundwave organisers reads, "Six Feet Under withdraw from Soundwave 2013 - drummer has had a dirt bike mishap & apparently will not recover in time to make the trip for Soundwave."

The travelling festival kicks off on Saturday (23Feb13) and will stop in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

News of Six Feet Under's departure from the line-up comes after Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker backed out of playing Soundwave due to his fear of flying.

He will be replaced by percussionist Brooks Wackerman.
