Detroit Social Club frontman David Burn was so badly injured on a video shoot he still can't play football – yet his bandmates did nothing to help him.

The singer fell through the floor while filming the clip for single 'Northern Man', released October 11, earlier in the summer and said he's still suffering.

"It was right at the beginning of the shoot in this dilapidated old building," he told NME. "I was walking around trying a suit on when I feel through the floor into this big trench."

However, rather than rush to his aid, his bandmates decided to make the most of the situation.

"No-one helped me at all," joked Burn. "Everyone was shouting, 'Photo! Photo!' I really knackered my ankle. It still throbs occasionally now. Last week I tried playing football for the first time and I still can't, it's agony."

Meanwhile, the band are now set to hit the road for a UK tour. They play:

Birmingham Rainbow (October 8)
O2 Academy Newcastle 2 (9)
Manchester Ruby Lounge (11)
London Dingwalls (12)
Sheffield Plug (14)
Glasgow King Tuts (15)
Leeds Faversham (16)
