Stabbing Westward vocalist Christopher Hall has shared that he’s been diagnosed with throat cancer.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, he wrote, “I’d like to apologize to everyone who made travel plans to see us in August and September. We’ve had to put those shows on hold while I deal with a serious health issue.”

Hall added that his current “prognosis is really good,” but he’ll need to undergo surgery and “6-8 weeks of chemo and radiation.”

“Unfortunately, I won’t be singing anytime soon,” he wrote. “I’m hoping to be feeling more human by Halloween and have my voice back by Christmas.”

Stabbing Westward just released a new album called Chasing Ghosts in March, marking the group’s first full-length effort in over 20 years.
