The Cribs' drummer Ross Jarman underwent surgery on his spine earlier this week (August 2).

The operation was to correct a herniated disc which was pushing on a nerve, an incident which had happened a few years ago when he was loading the band's gear in and out of a venue. The procedure went well and his brother, the band's vocalist and guitarist, Ryan, took to Facebook to explain what happened.

He revealed why they waited so long for the surgery, adding that when Ross has recovered fully, they'll be getting back to work on their fifth album, the follow-up to 2009's 'Ignore The Ignorant'.

Surgery was the only option but due to our busy touring schedule there never seemed to be a good time to do it, so it kept getting put off and put off again. Things kept getting worse however to the point where even just sitting on a plane became a grueling ordeal, so the decision was made to have the operation after festival season finished this year.


He continued:

It was a pretty gnarly procedure, involving the spinal cord actually being moved, and what follows now is six weeks of rest and rehabilitation, but then we will be back to work on album number five.
