The band wrote on Facebook: “Our lil Nath has to go in for an op on his throat on his birthday to make him better so join us in wishing him well. We love ya! #GetWellNath.” (Nobody warned them that hashtags don’t work on Facebook.)
An official statement from the band’s rep described the surgery as an “unforeseen hiatus” but maintained that everything will be going according to plan as Sykes recovers: “ The priority for Nathan, his label and management is that he is given time to recover and receive the best treatment possible,” it read. “The remaining four members of The Wanted will continue fulfilling the bands promotional commitments across the world.”
Stay strong, Nath. And #GetWell.
