I The Breather singer hospitalized; to miss shows

I, The Breather has revealed that vocalist Shawn Spann was hospitalized yesterday, and will miss the first week of the band's Warped Tour stint. Here's the official word:
"Unfortunately, our vocalist Shawn Spann was rushed to the hospital yesterday with health issues. He will make a full recovery, but unfortunately he will be missing the first week of Warped Tour. Luckily our great friend, Marcus Barber of Come The Dawn will be filling in on vocals! Hope to see you all there."
UPDATE: Spann has issued the following:
"Just a quick update on my status: I was hospitalized the other day with internal bleeding and had to be forced to miss about a week of shows coming up. I am currently feeling a lot better as the awesome people at the Upper Chesapeake Hospital have put an end to the pain/bleeding. I am currently in recovery mode and plan to get back out on the road with the boys as soon as my doctor gives me the go ahead. We are still waiting for my diagnoses to be wrapped up but have a general idea on where its going to end up so we can at least start a little plan to me being back on stage. With all that being said, Our awesome friend Marcus from Come The Dawn will be filling my shoes while I'm getting better. I am so thankful for him as id be devastated if my condition forced the band to stop performing. Please give him and my boys a huge hug for me when you see them. I have a new page I plan to use to keep everyone updated with my health which is posted at the end of this statement. Thank you for your time, I love you guys."
