This weekend at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in Worcester, I missed Within The Ruins’ performance. I went and got a bite to eat instead.
Because…well, its Within The Ruins.
So, I can’t say whether Within The Ruins vocalist Tim Goergen was looking peckish or not.
But, yeah — dude has been hospitalized in Massachusetts with “heart/liver complications,” forcing the band to miss their scheduled appearance at the Eat Your Heart Out Fest in Poughkeepsie, New York.
Says the band:
“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.”
We wish him a speedy recovery.
