Kevin Bales, drummer with Spiritualized, is currently in hospital in Nottingham recovering from leukemia.
After the band returned from a tour of Australia, Kevin fell ill and was admitted for tests, being diagnosed soon after.
The band had to cancel a gig in Norway but will however still play Leeds/Reading as well as Glasgow On The Green with Chris Davis, drummer from Nottinghams' Six by Seven, standing in.
The recording of their next album, which they were due to commence work on in September, has now been delayed for the near future.
We all wish Kevin a speedy recovery.
