After cancelling a couple of shows for a medical emergency this summer, Corbett revealed the diagnosis in a Facebook post yesterday, stating that he had a tumour removed. He was also set to begin further treatment yesterday.
“I caught it very early, and my type of cancer has a super high survival rate (96%),” Corbett added.
He also urged fans to continue to support the band, who he says have been very supportive throughout this process.
