Tim Smith, front man of the Cardiacs, suffered a heart attack on June 25th. He is in the process of recovering per the band. There is no longer any danger to his life and he is improving every day but as the band has stated, there is a long road ahead.
The band is currently working to having fans send personal messages of goodwill to their webiste at www.cardiacs.com.
The band has also stated this past week that due to Smith's health, they have deemed it appropriate to officially call to a halt all activities concerning CARDIACS for the foreseeable future. They have reluctantly canceled the forthcoming tour booked for November.
