Vanishing Point's Silvio Massaro Undergoes Surgery

A statement and a little interview in Vanishing Point site have been posted, explaining the situation of the singer and some info on the upcoming album:

On the morning of August 16th, only hours from celebrating his 30th birthday, Silvio Massaro was admitted to St. Vincent Hospital, Melbourne, Australia, for surgery on his sinus. We asked him for the reason why this surgery was done. We sent in our little reporter Linda Fiorentino to ask the important questions.

LF: Could you start off by telling everyone why you went into surgery?

SM: Well for years now I have been suffering from massive headaches which would literally render me being locked up in a dark room, curled up in a ball, till the pain went away. I'd get a huge build up of congestion in my sinus which would be the main problem of it creating so much pressure being built up, making my head throb! After numerous x-rays and tests, we found out my sinus was the main reason why I was getting these bastard headaches all the time.

LF: How long were you in for? What did they have to do to you?

SM: I was only in over night and in for most of the following day. They reconstructed my whole sinus by taking out parts of my skull behind my nose and scarping out cartilage. I have never been in so much pain as I am in now. I feel like someone has swung a baseball bat across my face!

LF: How long will you be out action?

SM: Well my doctor assures me that the worst will be over in a couple of weeks.

LF: Off the subject a bit here, but when are we going to see the new CD from VP?

SM: Haha! Good question... Well, all will be revealed very soon, I hope. There has been a chain of events as of late, which I can't get into for legal reasons, but we will issue some press releases in the next couple of weeks. It's been so frustrating for us lately knowing we have a killer album to release but can't release just yet. We understand and sympathise with our fans' frustrations and for that we're sorry. I know they won't be disappointed with the new CD. So I can say with confidence that it's definitely worth the wait!

LF: Well thanks for taking the time out to chat to me Silvio and we really hope that you have a speedy recovery.

SM: No probs, thank you.
