Cradle of Filth has issued the following announcement about guitarist James McIlroy undergoing surgery:

"Tomorrow, March the fifteenth, James Mcilroy, guitar hairwolf, will be having the delicate operation to repair his spine carried out, the very same shit that has kept him absent from the recent tour of Europe, and caused him so much pain over playing the last few years.

"Pressed, though obviously not too heavily, on the subject, James had this to say when he emailed me this evening with the news...

Anyway I am going into hospital today as they've graciously decided to give me a bed, and will be going into surgery tomorrow late morning or early afternoon. Operation lasts about 3-5 hours, and I should be back among the living on Sunday. It kind of goes something like this:

All the support, and well wishes from across the world, the band and crewdle has been amazing, and I couldn't wish for more support in my quest to obtain a similar 360 degree head movement of an owl (if you're going to get part of your neck replaced, you may as well upgrade)! After this, I'll also technically be more metal...

Thanks to everyone, and see you on the other side, ready to fucking rock!

"I hope you all can join with the band in wishing him well in advance of the operation and in a speedy recovery. We miss the lashing windmills!"
