June 2, 2009 - Exene Cervenka update

In a new statement, singer Exene Cervenka has shared the she was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. This is what she had to say regarding the matter:

"Although this is obviously unfortunate news, I am choosing to see the positive in it. I, and X as a band, have supported the Sweet Relief charity since the mid-1990ís; the irony of this is not lost on any of us. Sweet Relief was started as an aide to uninsured artists by musician Victoria Williams when she herself was diagnosed with MS in 1992.

While this diagnosis will most certainly mean some changes for me, personally, it will not affect my commitments to the current U.S. tour that X is now on, nor will it affect my solo album that is slated for release this fall on Bloodshot Records.

My focus will certainly be on maintaining my health, many people remain strong and continue to live their lives as productively as they had before an MS diagnosis and I plan to be one of those people. "
