cEvin Key undergoes reconstructive surgery while the doctors listen to Skinny Puppy

[dropcap]Skinny[/dropcap] Puppy’s cEvin Key has updated his fans via Facebook after a 6 hour reconstructive plastic surgery in order to repair nose and face damage after a removal of cancer. The picture is as graphic as his partner in crime Ogre’s face during your typical puppy concert, but Mr. Key is taking it in stride…


“So to explain. I had a basel cell cancer on the side of my nose, somehow it spread down my face to my lip and up to my eye. Internally they had to remove it all in a 4 hour surgery. Then I went to a 6 hour reconstructive plastic surgery which has reconstructed my nose and face damage. It should look better than before I started because I did have a large scar on my nose from a previous basel cell surgery 15 years ago. I was promised that it has all been removed now. great stage look tho dont you think? So this should be a sign to wear your sunscreen.”

 “So funny, at one point in the cancer surgery you have to be awake for that. I heard “Assimilate” and then “Tormentor”. I was like ‘WTF’. Especially the lyrics to Tormentor… “cutters face ripped apart !” I asked them if I was halucinating and they were like ‘no, we really wanted to hear your music’!”

Gute Besserung Herr Key—and thank you for normalizing cancer treatment and bringing awareness!
