The Japanese Metal Band Dir En Grey have announced that they will need to cancel their 'The STILL RECKLESS Tour' of America due to their vocalist's ill health. Their vocalist, stage named Kyo, has been diagnosed with Vocal Nodule Dyshponia, which means he has nodules on his vocal chords, and has been advised by his doctor to undergo treatment for it, hence the cancellation.
The Doctor's have advised him to limit the use of his voice prior and to rest as much as possible. Although the condition won't affect his everyday life, this surgery should help him recover but he may require the surgery again in the future.
The band posted a statement on their website stating: "To all our fans and affiliates, we are deeply
sorry and please understand that this has been a very difficult decision
for us as a band. To all our fans, please know that we are always
thankful for your continuous support"
I am quite the fan of Dir en Grey, and i would like to wish Kyo a speedy recovery so he can carry on doing what he does best.
