Spiritualized's Jason Pierce Heading Home After Long Hospital Stay

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Spiritualized's Juliette Lewis confirmed today that bandmate and husband Jason Pierce has recently been critically ill. In a post on the band's website, Juliette wrote that Jason had "advanced periorbital cellulitis with bilateral pnuemonia with rapid deterioration requiring intensive care and c-pap for type 1 respiratory failure." Although he spent a long time in intensive care and nearly died twice in the last two and a half weeks, she says he has "fantastically made an alarming and brilliant recovery and is due home today."

At the time he became ill, Pierce had been working on a new Spiritualized album. Juliette wrote that the songs seemed to predict the illness. She wrote, "Not that he's into ESP and stuff, just in the most beautiful way."
