Three weeks ago guitarist Kris Norris, formerly of Darkest Hour and currently of Weapons of Anew, was hospitalized with "inflammation of the heart or pericarditis," requiring a cardiac catheterization and further testing. According to Norris, doctors believe that a bacterial infection caused him to suffer a heart attack. Earlier this week, Norris provided the following update:
"I had a cardiology appointment today. It was good and bad news. But the best part is I was cleared to rejoin the tour soon so I hope to see some of you there. Further testing has to be done to determine more but I walked out feeling better and knowing soon I'll be in stage again. I'd like to thank everyone for all the wonderful messages. See you soon on stage."
Friends of Norris have subsequently launched a fundraiser to help offset his medical bills.
