Transistor Transistor have been forced to cancel their ongoing tour after one of their members contracted appendicitis:
He'd been having some stomach pains lately, so after a brief debate we decided to stop in an emergency room in bum fuck Connecticut. Long story short, Nat got checked out, juiced up on pain medication, and eventually went under the knife. His appendix was succesfully removed and he is currently recovering.The band released Ruined Lives this year.
So the good news is that Nat is ok. The bad news is that surgery doesn't allow a man to rock out on stage and sleep on dirty floors as is neccessary for a tour, so we have to cancel all the shows for this current tour. This is a major bummer, we were really looking forward to playing Dude Fest and all the other shows, but these are the cards we were dealt.
