Frontman Daryl Palumbo is hospitalised...

Rising new US lords of EMO GLASSJAW have been forced to cancel a string of European shows after frontman DARYL PALUMBO was hospitalised with recurring CROHN’S DISEASE.

Palumbo was rushed to hospital in Paris last night (October 1). He will remain in hospital for the next few days and is expected to make a full recovery.

Although it is uncomfortable and recurring, Crohn’s Disease is not life-threatening. Much of Beth Orton

‘s career has been blighted by the same illness.

The dates effected are:

Hamburg, Germany (October 2)

Cologne, Germany (3)

Camber Sands (5)

Birmingham Academy (6)*

Glasgow Barrowlands (8)*

Manchester, Academy (9)*

Newport Centre (10)*

London Garage (11)

London Brixton Academy (12)*

*With Lostprophets.
