Mike Spreitzer was hospitalized this afternoon(he has now been released and is okay) but unfortunately he will not be joining the band on their South American tour as doctor’s have ordered him not to. The tour is still continuing. Please head over to Michael Spreitzer page and send him your well wishes.

Hey everybody. Thank you all so much for your concern. It means so much to me. I’m doing okay and I’m back home. I’m not sure why, but I had a seizure in a Rite Aid while I was picking up a few last minute items for our South American tour. I collapsed and hit my head fairly hard. But the good news is all the tests results and cat scan came back negative. So I’ve been ordered to rest and stay home. I’ll be up and running for the next tour with Arch Enemy. I’m so upset that I can’t go to South America. I was so excited. Thanks again for your concern and I love you all. –Mike

We all wish Mike a speedy recovery.
