We haven’t heard much from Silverstein in a while, but last night, the band released a statement to fans that one of them was sick. Guitarist, Paul Marc had been admitted into the hospital at their Cornwall, Ontario stop of their current tour.
In the statement, singer Shane Todd revealed that Marc had started to feel some pain before their show in Sherbrooke and decided it would be wise to stop at a hospital to have him check out. It was a good thing that they did so because Marc had to have emergency abdominal surgery.
As of now, all upcoming tour dates ave been reschedule and hopefully will be able to hit the road again sometime next weekend. The full statement from Todd, on behalf of the other members, can be read below.
“Hi everyone, we have some bad news. Paul Marc is in a hospital in Cornwall, ON after having to have emergency abdominal surgery last night. He started feeling severe pain right before our show in Sherbrooke and it got so bad we had to stop at a hospital on the way back to Toronto. Right now our shows in Windsor, Kitchener and Hamilton are being rescheduled. Paul Marc got through the surgery okay, and hopefully he is recovered for the shows the next weekend in Etobicoke and Scarborough. Please feel free to send him well wishes through his twitter @paulmarc or Instagram @paulmarcsees . We’ll let you know when we have new dates for the makeup shows. Thanks for your understanding.
Shane // Silverstein”
