Following the postponement of their U.K. and European tour, Slaves’ Jonny Craig has shared an update on his health via Instagram.

“Apparently I'm out of here on April 17th!” Craig says. “My lower back still hurts quite a bit and my side is very stiff and itchy as fuck but I'm walking everyday farther and farther then the day before so I’m gonna keep going and I'm gonna get back on the road healthier than ever.”

Read his statement in full below.

Back in February, the band postponed dates in Texas and New York City and posted a statement saying that Craig had undergone three major surgeries for back pain.

Over the past few weeks I had been experiencing severe back pain. After consulting with the doctor it was clear that surgery was necessary. In this time, I have undergone three back surgeries. I’m beginning post surgery recovery and will have to remain hospitalized for the present time to properly heal from these surgeries and get back to full health before I can perform.

Following those dates, Slaves postponed their U.K. and European tour as Craig was continuing recovery and emphasized that their team was already working to reschedule the tour for later in the year, which "is sorting out to include [a] great lineup."
