Not too long ago, we heard about Eyehategod’s frontman Mike IX Williams’ health problems. Last fall, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe filled in for the ailing singer to complete their tour without it being specifically stated what was wrong with him. Then we found out that he needed a liver replaced. Thankfully, he’s made a speedy recovery after the surgery. When it was made public that he was ailing, a benefit event was made, set to embark on February 4 entitled “IX LIVES IX LIVES FOR THE SICK – MIKE WILLIAMS BENEFIT”, and nearly $75,000 was donated to his Youcaring site.
Until today, that was the last we’d heard, but today, the band announced Williams first performance back in April at the Berserker IV festival in Pontiac Michigan, proving his liver-transplant surgery was indeed a success. The festival takes place on April 14 and 15 and will also include Gwar, The Obsessed, Weedeater, and more.
The band posted the flyer saying, “Come witness the return ………IX”
