Wolf Alice’s Joel Amey to join Slaves for Mercury Prize performance tonight

Wolf Alice’s Joel Amey is going to briefly join Slaves this evening (Friday 20th November), for their performance at the Mercury Prize award ceremony following Slaves frontman Isaac Holman injuring his arm.

“During last night’s show in Norwich unfortunately Isaac was badly injured on stage,” the band’s management revealed in a statement.

“He was seen immediately by doctors in hospital, and today was seen by a specialist who confirmed that along with dislocating his shoulder there is serious tissue damage that requires him to rest his arm to avoid permanent damage.”

The duo – who also cancelled a gig in Glasgow earlier this week – are nominated for their debut album ‘Are You Satisfied?’, while Wolf Alice are also up with their debut ‘My Love Is Cool’.
