Cro-Mags 'JM' frontman suffers injury, shows canceled
Cro Mags "JM" have canceled their upcoming tour dates as the result of a hernia injury suffered by frontman John Joseph directly prior to the band's summer tour with Killswitch Engage and Clutch. Joseph had the following to say: "I reinjured my hernia, got to get surgery. What can you do? You've got to stay positive. You know what it is? I'm dealing with a lot of pain; I had to cancel all our shows and concerts and pull out of my Ironman, but I have to focus on what I have control over, and that is keeping my mind right so I heal quick and do the things I'm able to do, which means more writing. I'm working on new music. I'm working on the cookbook. I'm working on the film. That's in my control. How I deal with adversity, that's in my control. And that's what it's all about."
