King’s X Cancel Tour Following Drummer Jerry Gaskill’s Heart Attack

King's X

Following his heart attack Saturday night (Feb. 25), King’s X drummer Jerry Gaskill’s condition has improved — he’s currently in stable condition — but he remains in intensive care, and accordingly, the band has canceled all of its upcoming tour dates.

While the band is off the road, they’ll be leaving Gaskill’s chair open for him; as they wrote in a press release, “Jerry will be spending these days recovering back to full health so that he can hopefully join the band behind the drums at some point in the future.”

King’s X had been scheduled to play a solid string of dates throughout the West Coast and Midwest, starting March 28 in Austin and leading up through an April 22 show in Kansas City. Though the band hasn’t released an album of new material since 2008′s ‘XV,’ its hardcore following and expansive catalog — including the Top 10 rock hit ‘It’s Love’ — have helped make them a consistent live draw over the course of their more than three decades together.

For more updates on Gaskill’s condition and future plans for King’s X, visit their official site and Facebook page.
