Dennis Lyxzén suffered a "major heart attack" on Thursday morning (June 13). The Refused frontman shared the scary news on Instagram, sharing a photo from the hospital.

"So this morning I had a massive heart attack at my hotel room. It’s was extremely painful and wildly scary," he wrote. "Thanks [to] 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."

The Swedish punk band was supposed to play Stockholm’s Rosendal Garden Party festival this weekend, which would've been their first show in four years and was billed as “their last festival gig in Sweden. Ever;” however, were forced to cancel it due to Lyxzén's health. "I real 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," he lamented. "A complete bummer as I was really looking forward to it. But hopefully I/we will be able to make up to you soon."

Thankfully, it sounds like the 51-year-old singer will be able to continue performing if he chooses. "The good news is that with medication I can get back to my rocking self hopefully sooner than later," Lyxzén added. "Life is weird and precious. Take care of each and tell your loved ones that you love them."
