Warbeast frontman Bruce Corbitt was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in May 2017 and the outlook was grim. Corbitt said his treatments were unsuccessful after playing a final show and retiring from Warbeast, but was suggested to undergo experimental therapy as a last ditch effort to maybe give him some quality of life. The experimental therapies initially went well and Corbitt took to Facebook this summer to say he's approaching remission.
Sadly, in the time since, his condition has gotten worse. Corbitt posted a video message on Friday, January 11 announcing he was moved to hospice care.
In a video message, Corbitt says "Here I am, man — still fighting, fighting, fighting, fighting. I'm never gonna stop fighting. You all know that about me. It's just tough to even use those words: hospice. I never thought I would get to that point."
Corbitt is 56 years old.
Our thoughts are with Corbitt for a speedy recovery.
