TANK Frontman ALGY WARD: 'Tumor' Reports Are Misleading

TANK bassist/vocalist Algy Ward has posted a message on the TANK "This Means War" web site regarding the recent reports that he was scheduled to be taken into hospital next month to have a tumor removed from his head. The message reads as follows:

"Hi everybody, I've been extremely touched by every ones thoughts, their kind words and best wishes, e-mails, phone calls etc but the statement posted was unfortunately slightly misleading. I haven't been diagnosed with a tumour as yet, but I'm waiting for the analysis, it could be a glandular problem (hopefully) the doctors don't know, but there's a lump under my skull, behind my left ear, all the same. I have had a tumour before, on my rib cage during 1995, and thankfully that one turned out to be benign, what I do know is that my hearing is in a state, and being near any noise at all is virtually unbearable, whether this is permanent, it is too soon to tell, I'd have loved to play the shows in the U.S., but I'm not well enough to travel, let alone perform. I hope the men in white coats can sort me out over the next couple of months.... Thanks again for everyone's concern, and I'll be in touch... Your ever loving... Uncle Algy. Hammer on!!!!!!!! Good night children... everywhere..."
