Volumes drummer hospitalized in Europe
Volumes drummer Nick Ursich has been hospitalized for several days due to an infection, forcing the band to cancel a handful of shows amidst their European tour with Northlane et al. Volumes issued this statement on Wednesday:
"We are extremely heart broken we are not able to perform for you. Our drummer Nick Ursich had an infected cyst where he sits down to play drums. At first he kept complaining about something near his tailbone. Two hospitals in Spain and Switzerland told him nothing was wrong, until we went to a third in Germany and they had to operate on him immediately to remove and drain it out. Maintaining the wound has been hard on tour so now he is back in a fourth hospital, where he may stay overnight. More updates to come. To fly across the world and not able to perform hurts us more than anything. Please keep Nick Ursich in your prayers! Budapest is offering discounted rates if you keep your ticket for our next show there. We love you so much, and we will be back again in 2016 with a brand new album."Subsequently, Volumes have revealed that Ursich will be flying home, while Max Schad has flown in from California to fill in:
"We decided it's best for Nick to fly home Monday and get better as he's suffering from multiple set-backs, currently in the hospital... We have flown in Max Schad (Musician/Engineer/Producer) from Venice Beach, California to fill in on drums."
