Crazy Town singer Shifty Shellshock is in a coma, according to reports.

TMZ says that the frontman is currently receiving treatment in a hospital in LA, and has been in the Intensive Care Unit since last week. Although there has been no official confirmation of what caused his condition, sources close to the singer are suggesting it could have been drug-related.

Shellshock, real name Seth Binzer, has suffered from a number of high-profile substance abuse problems and appeared on US reality shows Celebrity Rehab and Sober House to seek treatment for drug addiction. It is also reported that he was set to appear in court for a pre-trial hearing this week, following his arrest for cocaine possession in February of this year.

In March 2011, Binzer was arrested over an alleged domestic disturbance, after police were called to his home following reports of an altercation between him and his girlfriends and detained him after discovering he had outstanding warrants. However, he insisted that he "didn't do domestic violence" and that police had been called to his home because his girlfriend "was being too loud". Instead, he claimed that the arrest was in relation to an incident with a security guard at a Los Angeles nightclub in 2006

Crazy Town are thought to be working on their third studio album and follow-up to their 2002 effort 'Dark Horse' but, despite a new track titled 'Come Inside' leaking online last year, there have been no new details about the LP.
