Good news for Alexi Laiho: The vocalist/guitarist of Children of Bodom who had been brought to the hospital a week ago with severe stomach pains and a “serious infection” is probably back home by now already.
The remaining band members of Children of Bodom, Janne, Jaska, Henkka and Roope, released a statement on their website as well as on Facebook yesterday, announcing that their singer would be returning home from the hospital in Oslo on Thursday (today):
We are happy to announce that Alexi will be leaving the hospital in Oslo tomorrow on Thursday, and are also glad to confirm that the band will be able to play Ilosaarirock Festival on Sunday. The Hate Crew is rolling again ! More infos shortly…
After the initial information about Laiho having stomach pains and an infection fans kept wondering what was up with the guy who is all too well known for pulling stunts like breaking bones on occasion (as for example jumping down from the tour bus or falling out of his bunk bed).
While it is good news indeed that he is no longer required to stay in the hospital, the press statement is remarkably short. Hopefully we’ll get further details as to what actually caused Laiho’s hospitalization in the near future. The fact that they’ll be returning to the stage this upcoming Sunday, however, is definitely a good sign.
