Hey guys Here's a clip from the album update vlog we just posted. As you know the record was supposed to have been out by now. Unfortunately I've had some issues with my voice which have delayed things. I've suffered from acid reflux for many years but it's always been manageable. During our Canadian tour I began noticing the meds weren't working as well as they used to and that for the first time, it was affecting my singing. I was getting hoarse after a couple of songs, couldn't hit high notes properly and my throat felt like it was on fire after every set. We had to cancel a bunch of European festival dates and after some very frustrating and painful vocal tracking sessions, postpone my recording as well. Turns out that was a good call because I haven't done any vocal chord damage. That was a huge relief (I seriously thought I had nodules). I'm on some stronger meds now and feeling better, albeit still not 100%. I'm about to have another crack at recording and will see how things go. If it's still not happening the next step will be anti-reflux surgery. It's a pretty standard procedure nowadays so nothing to worry about, but it would mean another 2-3 months before I can record. Thanks a lot for your patience guys. This has been a difficult time for me but it feels good to finally have some answers and know there's a solution if the meds don't cut it. Will keep y'all updated. -Raj #newalbum #recording #vocals #refluxsucks

Hello friends

Just a quick update on the new album. As you know the record was supposed to have been out by now. Unfortunately I've had some issues with my voice which have delayed things. I've suffered from acid reflux for many years but it's always been manageable. During our Canadian tour I began noticing the meds weren't working as well as they used to and that for the first time, it was affecting my singing. I was getting hoarse after a couple of songs, couldn't hit high notes properly and my throat felt like it was on fire after every set.

We had to cancel a bunch of European festival dates and after some very frustrating and painful vocal tracking sessions, postpone my recording as well. Turns out that was a good call because I haven't done any vocal chord damage. That was a huge relief (I seriously thought I had nodules). I'm on some stronger meds now and feeling better, albeit still not 100%. I'm about to have another crack at recording and will see how things go. If it's still not happening the next step will be anti-reflux surgery. It's a pretty standard procedure nowadays so nothing to worry about, but it would mean another 2-3 months before I can record.

Thanks a lot for your patience guys. This has been a difficult time for me but it feels good to finally have some answers and know there's a solution if the meds don't cut it. Will keep y'all updated.
