Warbeast Frontman Bruce Corbitt Steps Down Following Esophageal Cancer Diagnosis


Warbeast frontman Bruce Corbitt has been forced to retire from singing as the result of being diagnosed with esophagus cancer. He said of the matter:

“I was just told an ago I more than likely have stage 3 Esophagus cancer. Still a chance for stage 2. I get into more details on what that means and our plan of attack soon.

But after much discussion with the doctors and specialist. ..they’ve told me there’s no chance within in any reasonable time that I’ll ever be able to perform again.
So it breaks my heart at this time that I’m forced to announce my retirement from singing. I’m sorry to all of my band mates for letting them down. I’m devastated with all of this hitting me so fast. I’m still in shock.

Thanks for all of the great support all these years. You’re the best fans and I love all of you! We at least have a great Warbeast album and music video coming soon.”

He details what he is facing in the below video. The band had a new album in the works and were lining up shows in support of it.
