The Maine has been announcing lots of exciting news lately. However, fans received some not so exciting news a couple of days ago. Guitarist, Kennedy Brock, revealed that while recording their upcoming album, American Candy, a tumor was found on his thoracic spine. Thankfully, the tumor, which he lovingly named Nigel, was removed and has been classified as benign.
Check out a full statement from Brock after the jump.
We here at Infectious Magazine wish him a fast and full recovery!
The Maine are getting ready to release their fifth studio album, American Candy, this spring. To hear more from The Maine before then, you can purchase a CD here.
During our time recording American Candy, a tumor was found on my thoracic spine. I went through a tricky surgery to remove it, but everything went as good as humanly possible and it has since been classified as benign. I am currently healthy and free of my unwanted friend, but still very sore and healing. I am writing to request that everyone please be gentle, with hugs and such, while hanging out with me over the next few months. I love you all and couldn’t be happier to be seeing you all again soon! #AMERICANCANDY#8123 #Nigelthetumor
