Hate Eternal frontman hospitalized

Saturday, November 29, 2008 7:06 PM PT


Hate Eternal has dropped off the ongoing Job For A Cowboy North American tour as guitarist/singer Erik Rutan is currently hospitalized with a hand infection and "complications in his kidney." The group has disclosed the following details:

"Erik was admitted to an Iowa City hospital on the early morning of Nov. 23rd and has remained under doctor's supervision since. The infection has caused concern for the doctors, but the major concern of the doctor's is, Erik's kidney. Erik has had a couple of procedures done on his kidney. Erik will not be able to continue the tour, but he is expected to make a full recovery. He is expected to be released sometime next week and then will seek further treatment at home in Florida. Hate Eternal would like thank to everyone on the tour for their understanding of the situation. Hate Eternal would also like to thank all the fans who have expressed concern for Erik's health."
