Primus have issued another update regarding the health of their drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander, who is recovering from a heart attack he suffered on July 15th, 2014 and the triple bypass surgery that followed on July 21st to alleviate the issues. The group previously confirmed that Alexander is expected to be back behind the kit with them for their October tour. In a statement posted today, the band offered:

Tim has been home from the hospital for about 5 days and is making great progress. Thanks to all Tim‘s friends in the music community and the fans for having Tim in their thoughts over the past two weeks. He is up walking around, starting some physical therapy and his wits about him as well. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the 2 set shows in Maplewood, Fargo and Clive as Tim wont be ready to play 2 sets in September. Tim is resting up at home and getting ready for his return to the stage on Oct 22nd at the Tower Theater in Philadelphia. We’ll be making a special announcement about both Riot Fest shows sometime in the near future.”
