CANNIBAL CORPSE Bassist Says Singer GEORGE FISCHER 'Should Be Fine Soon'

CANNIBAL CORPSE bassist Alex Webster has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"Hey everyone, we just wanted to update you guys on the situation with George [Fischer, vocals]. He has an inflamed lung that has been making breathing very difficult and painful for him. He had to miss the Pittsburgh show because of this. We want to say thanks to Maurizio from KATAKLYSM for singing 'Stripped, Raped and Strangled' with us, and also say thanks to the Pittsburgh fans who contributed some growling throughout the show. We thought we might have a similar situation at the next show in Philadelphia, but George was able to perform despite his illness. He is still having some breathing difficulty, but he is improving. He also thinks he'll be able to finish the remaining shows without any problems, as the medicine the doctors prescribed for him is reducing the inflammation. Anyway, this is not a permanent problem, just a passing illness. George should be just fine soon.

"George and the rest of us want to say a big thank you to all of the fans who have expressed concern and support on this matter, it means a lot to us."
