Bad news here… If you haven’t heard already, Within The Ruins’ frontman Tim Goergen has been hospitalized for “heart/liver complications”. The band announced this with the following statement:
“Yesterday 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.”
Furthermore, Within The Ruins had to back out on their tour with Whitechapel, Carnifex, and Cruel Hand with this turn of events. The official word was given in yet another statement:
“Unfortunately, at this point we have no other option but to withdraw from the remaining dates of the Whitechapel tour. Tim will be released tomorrow, but due to the seriousness of his condition he has been advised not to engage in any strenuous activity while recovering over the next few weeks. We apologize to any fans that were looking forward to seeing us, but Tim’s health comes first. We WILL be back out this summer in support of our forthcoming album. The rest of the shows are still happening so be sure to make it out and support our friends in Whitechapel, Carnifex and Cruel Hand. See you all this summer!”
Best wishes to Tim and the rest of the band.
