As was previously reported, Rigor Mortis guitarist Mike Scaccia underwent neck surgery earlier this month. The band has issued the following update about his condition:

"I have spoken with Mike every few days to get updates on his recovery. As I mentioned a while back... the surgery is a success. Mike says he no longer has the pains in his arms that have bothered him in recent years. However, he has really been in some serious pain from the actual surgery itself. He has had to go back to the hospital 3 different times because of swelling in his neck and the severe pain he is going through. So he still has a long road ahead of him before he is 100% again.

"But Mike again mentioned how much that all of your support has meant to him to help him get through this scary time in his life and career. It has really motivated him to look forward to writing some of the best music of his career as soon as he is able. He says his arms feel like they did 20 years ago and he thinks he will be able to play even better and faster than he ever has. He can't wait to start writing some new Rigor Mortis songs. So again thanks from Mr. Scaccia and the rest of us in Rigor Mortis for all of your support!"
