As some of you may have already heard, this message is to confirm that San Singer has shattered his elbow in an on-stage accident. The incident occured near the end of the band's performance at Ngee Ann Secondary School on February 28, as part of our "Riot Da Skool" tour of schools and tertiary institutions in Singapore.

San's had successful surgery to reconstruct the joint, and he revealed, "I jumped off a Marshall stack, the whole thing toppled over...and while I was trying to protect my guitar, I landed on my elbow. And now my whole elbow is made of metal. Actually titanium." You can view the entire statement here.

Although doctors are confident he will be able to play guitar again, it will require at least three months of intensive physiotherapy and rest. "Physiotherapy really hurts like a bitch, but I'll see you all soon in three to four months' time. Rock on!" said a clearly emotional San before flashing his trademark rock sign.

As a result, we've indefinitely postponed our upcoming Australian tour, which had been confirmed but not publicly announced. We still expect to play at the Mosaic Music Festival on March 19 and we're currently holding auditions for a short-term replacement guitarist. More news as and when they develop.

It was an unfortunate and sickening accident to witness, but we're grateful that he is otherwise in good health and spirits. We'll do whatever it takes to support him through his recovery. In the meantime, please send in your well wishes to our website guestbook, myspace or email and please continue sending your song requests to your favorite radio stations. If you can, spare some time to include him in your daily thoughts and prayers too.
