DevilDriver’s guitarist Mike Spreitzer was hospitalized yesterday, and was released the same day, for treatment of an unknown illness; it was later revealed the dude had a seizure.
“Unfortunately, he will not be joining the band on their South American tour as doctors have ordered him not to,” says a statement from the band. “The tour is still continuing.”
No word on who the band will be finding to fill in for Spreitzer on DevilDriver’s six-date tour of South America and Mexico.
That kicks off on August 10 at Teatro Flores in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Lucky bastards. I wish I were in Argentina this week.
I wonder what happened with Spreitzer. Whatever it is, I wish him a speedy recovery. Perhaps he was just sick of Dez Fafara. There’s no cure for that common ailment.
