EYEHATEGOD Frontman Successfully Receives A New Liver

It works, and he's in the ICU post-surgery right now.

It works, and he's in the ICU post-surgery right now.

In mid-November, it was revealed that EYEHATEGOD frontman Mike IX Williams needed a new liver. It had quietly been announced that Williams was having unspecified health problems back in August when Phil Anselmo took over Williams' spot live with EYEHATEGOD, but at the time no further information was give. In late November, his condition got a lot worse and the situation seemed pretty dire.

Now, being completely out of line with the general awfulness of 2016, here's some good news! According to Williams' YouCaring account run by his wife Michelle, Williams went under the knife this morning to receive a new liver!

"This morning we got the call we'd been waiting for…They found a donor match for Michael!!! After waiting all day to hear something, they just took him down to prep for the transplant! They should start the actual surgery in about an hour. I'll keep you posted on his progress. Please send good thoughts our way."

She followed that up after the surgery saying that everything went well, Williams is in the ICU, and the liver is functioning as it should be. So here's hoping everything continues to go as well as it has today with Williams, and he's back home as soon as possible.
