NEVERMORE guitarist Steve Smyth (ex-TESTAMENT) has issued the following statement:

"It is with deep regret that I will not be able to perform at any of European festivals over the next week with NEVERMORE, as I am now in hospital being treated with dialysis. The total kidney failure that I thought was a few months away has already happened. I am extremely disappointed with this situation, but there is nothing I can do. I wish the guys in NEVERMORE all the best and hope that as many of you fans as possible give them your support in Europe."

As previously reported, Smyth was diagnosed with end-stage kidney failure last fall, the result of a congenital birth defect. Says Smyth. "JAG PANZER guitarist Chris Broderick will fill in for Smyth on the upcoming dates as he has done on the recent U.S. tour.
