Piebald frontman Travis Shettel had surgery on his vocal chords, and they even posted the disgusting medical photo on the band’s website. The stress of playing literally hundreds of shows in the past year has caused the formation of blood blisters on the vocal chords of the singer. Travis had surgery in Boston on Sept 17th to repair the problem. The operation, performed by the same surgeon who did the procedure on Sir Elton John, was a success. Diagnosis: Rock! Unfortunately surgery on your vocal chords is, well, a little pricey. To help out with his outrageous medical bills, you can visit their official site to buy a special commemorative t-shirt.
