Madina Lake have added an extra matinee show to their upcoming UK tour next month.

The Chicago based band had already sold out their night show at London's Barfly but in light of recent events and with fans beseeching them for more shows, the band have announced plans to play a matinee show also on Wednesday August 4.

“What better way to spend the day than with our fans, our friends,” says Madina Lake frontman, Nathan Leone. “We’re so grateful for all their support and are looking forward to seeing everyone.”

Tickets for the matinee performance will go on sale soon through Ticketweb. It will be a 14+ show with doors opening at 1pm and there will be NO support acts.

With bass player Matthew Leone still recovering from his horrendous attack in which he was brutally beaten after trying to help a woman whose husband was beating her, the band bravely decided to continue with their planned tour deciding not to bring in a replacement. Talking of their plans Nathan explained, "We have the Sonisphere Festival coming up in the UK and a few headlining dates around that. We decided last night that we're going to commit to playing them, and we're not going to hire a bass player to fill in. Instead, if it's possible, we're going to try to have Matthew record his bass tracks here, and then run them when we play live. We're not going to hire a new bass player [for the shows] ... we don't want anyone to take his place. So, if he can pick up a bass, he's going to play his parts."

Updating fans on his brother's condition, Nathan Leone told MTV News “Honestly, it's like walking on glass, because I have to make sure absolutely nothing happens to him, have to keep him safe and protected and healing, and then, there's the brain surgery, with all the risks of that," says Nathan. "It's a very tenuous situation. He can't roll over, can't really rest the side of his head on anything, and he can't get up and walk around, even though he very much wants to. He spends most of the day right in the middle of my bed, so he can't roll off at night. I've been sleeping on the couch. He's slowly but surely getting his strength back, but it's still hard, because not only is his surgery upcoming, but any time you have a neurological trauma, the long-term effects are unknown, and can be for up to a year," Nathan explains. "So, right now, it's a situation where we have all this time until the surgery, and you're holding your breath that everything is stable until then. Then you need that surgery to go perfectly, and from there it's another four to six weeks of recovery. So hopefully everything goes as well as possible".

With no medical insurance, fans have been quick to offer their support to the band with $12,000 already raised and plans for an online auction to take place next week. For more details head to Through The Pain website.
