    Dennis Lyxzen, frontman for Swedish post-hardcore icons Refused is recovering in hospital after suffering a massive heart attack. 

    Lyxzen posted a message for fans from his hospital bed in Uppsala, revealing that the heart attack occurred in his hotel room and means that the band's performance at Sweden's Rosendal Garden Party has to be cancelled. 

    The post features a photograph of Lyxzen in his hospital bed with a caption detailing the experience, with Dennis sharing "So this morning I had a massive heart attack at my hotel room. It’s was extremely painful and wildly scary. Thanks the the wonderful doctors and nurses at the Uppsala hospital I’m still around to fight another day. Under the circumstances, I feel ok. Sore and tired and really shook up. I really hate cancelling show but the doctor said no rock for a couple of weeks. Which means that the @refused show at @rosendalgardenparty is not happening. A complete bummer as I was really looking forward to it. But hopefully I/we will be able to make up to you soon. The good news is that with medication I can get back to my rocking self hopefully sooner than later. Life is weird and precious. Take care of each and tell your loved ones that you love them."

     

     

    The festival appearance had been promoted as the band's 'final festival appearance' in Sweden, so it will be interesting to see how the band addresses that in the future. One of the most respected bands of their era, Refused reunited in 2012, returning to a world that had grown to love what was at that point their final album, 1998's The Shape of Punk To Come
    After selling out shows worldwide (including a memorable run down under), Refused decided to continue as an active band, releasing two full-lengths 2015's Freedom and 2019's War Music. There have been no confirmed reports as to whether the Swedes will continue onwards with the band beyond their current touring run.
