Within The Ruins Vocalist Tim Goergen Hospitalized
Lambgoat reports that Within the Ruins were forced to cancel their appearance at Sunday’s Eat Your Heart Out Fest in Poughkeepsie, NY — because frontman Tim Goergen has been hospitalized in the band’s hometown of Westfield, MA.
Say the group via Facebook:
“Yesterday [Saturday, April 19] morning Tim checked into a hospital here in Western Mass for a second time since our tour began four days ago. We will unfortunately not be performing at today’s Eat Your Heart Out Fest, as we are waiting for clarity on Tim’s condition and release. Tim informed us a few weeks before leaving for tour that he was experiencing chest and stomach pains. After his first doctor visit he was advised to ‘take it easy’ if he did do the tour. At this point all we know is that he is experiencing heart/liver complications, will not be released today, but is stable.”
“Heart/liver complications” sounds pretty serious, but we’re glad to hear that Goergen is stable and getting the help he needs. Hopefully he’ll be in fighting shape and back on the road again soon.
