(Metal Hammer) Eyehategod frontman Mike IX Williams needs a liver transplant and his wife is asking fans to help pay for the life-saving treatment. Michelle Maher-Williams has launched a crowdfunding page and given a full update on the singer's health. She says Williams, 48, remains in hospital and that he will not be given a transplant until a number of medical bills are settled.

Williams stepped back from performing with Eyehategod this year, but the nature of his health problems was never disclosed. Phil Anselmo and Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe have filled in for him at recent Eyehategod shows.

Michelle Maher-Williams says: "As much as he hates the idea of asking for help, he needs your support now more than ever and has realized that his friends, family and fans deserve to know exactly what is going on with him and his health.

"In December 2014, while on tour with Corrections House, Michael was hospitalised in Texas. The ER doctor told him that his liver was failing and he wouldn't survive another year. He immediately returned to New Orleans and consulted with one of the best liver specialists in the country. Although he was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver, this doctor gave him the hope and encouragement that he needed to put up the fight of his life." Read more here.
