“Hey friends…I’d been feeling a bit under the weather while performing the most recent Gigantour shows so I went to the Dr. on my day off today and I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia!!! So under doctor’s orders, I’m taking a week to rebuild…my apologies to our Canadian brothers and sisters in regions where we will not be appearing this week. I’m gonna work on keeping me alive so together we can keep the metal alive!!!! Cheers to all!!”
