Morrissey has been injured in a dog attack. The former Smiths frontman was accosted by a canine during his recent time touring in England, says, and suffered injuried to his hand and arm. Moz was subsequently diagnosed with a fractured tip of his index finger in a Swedish hospital.

The 'Meat Is Murder' singer's upcoming tour, which included two dates in Dublin's Vicar Street, will not be affected by the injury.

Morrissey's newest studio album is in the can, but he is still awaiting a label to release it. It may be some time before the record sees the light of day, as Moz is unwilling to self-release it, because his "talents do not include DIY".
