This is good news.

DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara has revealed that bassist Aaron “Bubble” Patrick has been released from the hospital.

He made the revelation on his Twitter, which I follow consistently, as I am a super huge fucking fan — as regular readers know.

Bubbles had been hospitalized with Streptococcus Pneumonia not too long ago.

Since undergoing treatment, Bubbles’ former Bury Your Dead bandmate, Chris Towning, has been filling in for him at DevilDriver’s live shows.

We are glad Bubbles is better. When we first heard about his diagnosis, we thought maybe he had a life-threatening case of hairy black tongue.

Luckily, our assumptions were wrong.
