Mumford & Sons bassist leaves hospital after surgery

Friday June 14, 2013

Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane, 28, has left hospital following asuccessful brain surgery to remove a blood clot found on Monday.

After feeling ill for several days, the band member was taken to hospital which ultimately forced his fellow band mates to put three of their US Summer Stampede tour dates on hold.

The folk band released a statement on their Facebook following the bassist’s emergency operation and said that he has been ‘heroic’ in his ordeal this week.

'It is with great joy that we can announce that Ted has been discharged from the hospital and is on the road to a full recovery,' the statement read.

'The surgery went well, and the excellent medical team helping him are very pleased with his progress.'

'He has been nothing short of heroic in how he has handled the whole ordeal, and now it is medically proved that he does indeed have a brain,' joked the band.

Following doctor’s advice the band regrets to inform fans of their postponement of the tour.

'We trust that you can respect our collective desire to encourage Ted to make a full recovery and that is based purely on the medical advice we have received,' they said.

Following Dwane's hospitalization on Monday, his bandmates Marcus Mumford and Winston Marshall were spotted in Austin Texas alongside Marcus' wife – actress Carey Mulligan.
