TVOTR bassist diagnosed with lung cancer

Smith (far right) diagnosed with lung cancer // Pitchfork

Sad news for one of our Spring Weekend headliners. TV on the Radio recently posted an announcement on their official website that bassist-keyboardist Gerard Smith is currently undergoing treatment for lung cancer and thus will be unable to join the band on tour this spring. Despite the circumstances, the band has faith in Gerard’s resilience and determination, claiming that “it might just be cancer who has the problem.” We, the staff of BlogDailyHerald, send our deepest sympathies and wishes for a speedy recovery to Gerard.
