Shitdisco drummer breaks his wrist

But band continue ShockWaves presents Club NME On Tour

Shitdisco drummer Darren Cullen has been ruled out of the rest of the ShockWaves Presents Club NME On Tour after breaking his wrist.

The sticksman was taken to hospital last night (October 10) following the band’s performance alongside Klaxons, Simian Mobile Disco and Datarock at Birmingham Custard Factory.

According to a spokesman for the band, Cullen was dancing on top of their tour van when he fell off and broke his wrist.


He explained: “The house engineer broke his fall slightly but he still suffered a broken wrist. He went to hospital and had metal plate put in after surgery.

“He will be unable to drum for the rest of the tour but Darren is in good spirits and he can’t wait to get back.”

Session drummer Mark Heaney has been drafted in to replace the Shitdisco sticksman for the remainder of the tour, which continues in Northampton Soundhaus tonight (October 11).
