Full Story: Seven Lions
Hey guys, Got some good news and bad news:
Good news is I went home to Santa Barbara to see a specialist about my hand and it looks like I don’t need surgery and might have the cast off in two weeks. Bad news is I caught a bad flu/fever in Canada and on the way home I got an extreme case of airplane ear and lost hearing in both ears. As a musician this is probably the scariest thing imaginable. Fortunately my hearing has been coming back but I still need to go see a Dr. about it to make sure I did no permanent damage and I won’t be getting on another plane until I know its safe for my ears and my fever is gone. I have no problem playing sick, I have no problem playing with a broken hand but I just gotta protect my ears. I’m hoping to have this all figured out by the end of the week but I will be missing some upcoming shows on the tour. The tour has been fucking amazing so far so it really sucks to make this call but I know I will be up and running at 100% soon. I hope you understand. I’ll make it up to you guys.
