Crazy Town singer Shifty Shellshock has apparently come out of his coma.

The frontman was receiving treatment in a hospital in LA and had been in an Intensive Care Unit since last week but, according to reports, is now set to make a full recovery.

TMZ writes that Shellshock, real name Seth Binzer, was taken off breathing tubes last night (April 3) and is responsive, conscious and even "speaking sporadically".

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.

Bizner 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. Bizner was set to appear in court for a pre-trial hearing this week following his arrest for cocaine possession in February of this year.

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.
