Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner is still feeling under the weather following a bout with pancreatitis. He’s home, recovering…but wants to get back on the road.
“I’m happy to say that I’m feeling much better, back to playing, and almost feel 100% — too bad my insides are still not 100% but they’re healing nicely primarily due to me staying off the road and resting,” says Jason.
“I have another round of bloodwork next week, in which the docs think I should be back to all normal internal functions by then, but they still are prohibiting me from leaving until after my endoscope on Dec. 18th (they need to hopefully find the cause of the Pancreatitis, and whether or not anything else is going on as well — but i feel pretty confident that i’ll be ok),” he continues.
“So what does this mean to Shadows Fall — it means that I, sadly, will not be able to return until after the 18th,” he says.
“In the meantime please go continue to support the band on the KSE tour with my boy Willis Mathiasen covering for me — he’s got a tough job and he’s handling it like a pro from what I’ve seen and heard…..I’m really missing the band, and the fans and tour, but I promise that I WILL be on the last dates of the tour after xmas.”
We wish Jason a continued successful recovery.
