Sick Of It All frontman Lou Koller has said that doctors have discovered a tumour in his esophagus, which has forced the New York hardcore veterans to cancel their upcoming European tour while he undergoes treatment.

They found a tumour in my esophagus that goes into my stomach, and I’ll have to be getting treatment all summer — and of course, with full support of the band“, Koller commented in an Instagram video. “As soon as they heard it, they were, like, ‘Forget the tour. Just get healthy.’ … They’re all behind me staying home and us staying home.”

Koller concluded the video with a note of optimism. He said: “Thanks for all your support and I’ll hopefully beat this thing and see you at the end of the summer… or maybe the winter“.
