Upon A Burning Body call off

Download 2014: They'll miss festival set and Metal Hammer Golden Gods cruise after singer Leal falls ill

Upon A Burning Body have pulled out of today's Pepsi Max Stage set – and they'll also miss the Metal Hammer Golden Gods in London on Monday.

The cancellations come after singer Danny Leal contracted a severe ear infection, and doctors refused him permission to fly to the UK – and it's left the band devastated.

They say in a brief statement: "It is with heavy hearts that Upon A Burning Body announce they are not able to perform as scheduled at this year's Download Festival or the HMS Hammer at the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards.

"Danny Leal was taken seriously ill and doctors would not clear him to fly. The band send their most sincere apologies, and can't wait to make it up to their UK fans on their headline tour this November as part of Download Freezes Over."

Promoters Live Nation say Lawnmower Deth will play an extended set to cover UABB's absence, and no other stage times will be affected.
