This Or The Apocalypse drummer undergoes appendectomy surgery

Posted by on January 6, 2014

totaIf you’re planning on catching This or the Apocalypse on the road with Shai Hulud, Sirens and Sailors and Sworn In (they’ll be on starting 1/11), you might see an unfamiliar face behind the kit. That’s because TOTA drummer Aaron Maloney is sitting out at least some of the run following emergency appendectomy surgery. The band were forced to cancel last night’s West Chester show, but thankfully, the band will be continuing on starting tonight, with Sirens and Sailors drummer Doug Court pulling double duty. Here’s what the band had to say about Aaron earlier today:

Thank you all so much for the well wishes on Aaron’s recovery. He is dealing with a bad appendix and is currently having it removed.

We will not be missing any more performances along the way as Sirens and Sailors very talented drummer Doug is preparing to take on a few days of double duty behind his drum kit. Lucky for us, this guy is one of the most solid drummers in the scene and will keep the show running. Once again, we are all thankful for any wishes/support. Please come out and show some love. We’ll be collecting some gifts in the mean time: Aaron likes skittles, drum magazines, orange juice with pulp, comics about androgynous heroes, musicals, Facebook arguments, and beer; but perhaps let’s skip on the last two. If you’d like to bring him any get well cards or anything, feel free. Also, give Doug a high five for us.

First three shows of the headliner have been fantastic, let’s keep the good times rolling.
