Yeah, all the best to Aaron. Can't wait to hear what they came up with this time as well, as far as the new record goes.

Hope he gets better. Anybody knows what was his condition, besides MS of course?

I still liked some tracks, but III didn't really live up to expectations. Hope there next one brings in.

Hope the dude gets better though.

III wasn't my favorite but I'll always love this band.

I smell a KickStarter coming soon!

suicidalmoose 02/19/12 06:00 PM

damn, the man can't catch a break. hope it all goes well.

also, too bad it's only in July, I was hoping for the record to be released sooner :(

Doesn't their drummer have MS or something?

Sucks anyway, hope he recovers soon. Loved seeing these guys at GIAN when they were, essentially, at their biggest. Really fun band.

I've heard it's gonna be called Billy Talent X because they saif it's going to be different from the other 3 albums.

Anyways, great band, great dudes. They deserves a lot more recognition in the US.

He had an aortic valve replacement because he was suffering from a leaky aortic valve. Damn that guy's a trooper.

Hey at least we have a release timeline now!

As someone who had experimental heart surgery to save my life at birth, I always worry about those impacted by heart problems. I hope he gets well soon! I know someone else who is undergoing a heart surgery before doing a big tour this summer, it's crazy to see people around my age struggle with cardiological problems.

Open-heart surgery? Geez. Hope he feels better soon.

Since he's Canadian, I doubt it.

Christrings 02/20/12 03:29 PM

As long as they still play Download, psyched to hear their new stuff.
