Sweden's ENTOMBED have released more information regarding the cancellation of the group's shows in Toronto and Montreal earlier this week.
The following is taken from the band's tour diary, as posted on their official web site (www.entombed.org):
"[Drummer] Peter [Stjärnvind] woke up [Tuesday] morning and could hardly speak.. He had a lot of pain in his throat. So, we sent him off to the hospital to have a check, again, as he has been sick for a long time.. After a few hours of wait we get a text message on the cellphone from Peter saying that he needs surgery immediately! I don't know the exact words for this cause I am Swedish, but he had 2 pus filled boils in his throat area that needed to be removed. In Swedish we call it Halsbold.
"So, when [bassist] Jörgen [Sandström] got to the hospital to keep [Peter] company, [Peter was] full of drugs and miserable. The doctor gave him a lot of medication, and recommended a few days rest..
"So we cancelled the Toronto show (of course) and also the Montreal show and from that on we will see...
"We hope he will be better with his medication a.s.a.p., but we just have to wait and see…"
