Melody’s Echo Chamber’s management company Echo Park Records have been forced to issue a new statement on the health of French songwriter Melody Prochet.
Yesterday Far Out reported that Prochet had been forced to cancel an upcoming tour after a ‘serious incident‘ has left Prochet hospitalised for the foreseeable months, an injury that has since been clarified as sustaining a ‘brain aneurysm and broken vertebrae’.
It was only April when Melody’s Echo Chamber announced a new album, Bon Voyage, with single ‘Cross My Heart’, a record the band looked set to tour across North and South America.
One of those venues, the Music Hall Of Williamsburg, released information which has since proven to be incorrect due to the changing state of Prochet’s condition. Echo Park Records moved to clarify:
“A week ago the family and doctor drafted up a statement which has since changed due to her medical results and tests,” the management company told Stereogum.
“Melody’s agent sent this old information to various promoters for cancellation insurance.
“The original announcement made yesterday is the most accurate and complete statement we can offer until we get more information from Melody’s doctors about her condition.”
Now, as public concern grows for the health of Prochet, her family moved offer a little more explanation into the injuries she has suffered by updated the Facebook message:
“Dearest Friends,” the statement read. “Melody suffered a serious accident earlier this month and experienced a brain aneurysm and broken vertebrae. We are optimistic, but she needs to be in the hospital for a few more months. Due to these circumstances, Melody’s upcoming tour has been canceled. But she is hopeful to be able to play shows again soon.
“Thank you for your support
“- Melody’s Family -“
