Sigh Changing Finnish Tour Dates Set List Due To Gutiarist's Illness

Vocalist Mirai Kawashima of Sigh has issued the following statement about their guitarist being hospitalized:

"Today our guitarist, Shinichi Ishikawa, was diagnosed as TB and was forced to be hospitalized straightaway. He was really sick when we rehearsed last Sunday claiming that he had been having a really high fever for 5 days. I told him to go to hospital as it was not something usual. Yesterday it was found out that his lungs have fluid, and today they found out that it attributed to TB.

"Still we will come to Finland and play this weekend with Satoshi on guitar and me on bass. However the set list should be much shorter and the songs are mainly from our debut album and Venom tracks. We truly apologize for this. Definitely we will do our best. I hope you all the fans understand this situation and will wish well for Shinich."
