Some startling news from Josh Abbott yesterday. The Lubbock-based singer and his band have had to cancel several shows and appearances after Abbott was hospitalized over the weekend.

"I suffered an extreme case of anaphylaxis," Abbott wrote on his Facebook page, "that resulted in an ER visit that saved my life, but am still recovering from swollen vocals." In addition their bass player James lost his grandfather. And two of our band members discovered a dead body in Vegas in a horrific manner."
