Danish thrashers HATESPHERE have released the following statement:
"Due to serious health problems, our dear bass player, Jimmy 'The Talent' Nedergaard, is forced to sit out our upcoming European tour with HYPOCRISY.
"Jimmy is suffering from diabetes, and due to that fact his kidney is in very bad shape, things are now that bad that he needs a kidney transplant, and things are set up for that to happen in the end of the year. He is now preparing and relaxing at home, and we wish him a speedy recovery. Nikolaj Harlis Poulsen from fellow Danes BLOOD LABEL will stand in for Jimmy on the shows that will be affected by this."
