David Murphy beats cancer, STS9 to resume touring in March

It didn’t take near as long as he expected it to, but Sound Tribe Sector Nine bassist David Murphy has kicked the cancerous tumor doctors discovered in his sinus cavity only five weeks ago. A statement on STS9’s official website (via Spinner) says that the Atlanta native’s recovery “has been nothing short of amazing, inspiring, and impassioned.”

In fact, it’s been so inspiring that the band will return to the road at the end of March when they head down to Miami, FL to play the second day of the Ultra Music Festival. They then celebrate 4/20 by playing a pair of dates at the Classic Center in Athens, GA and have several shows in the Midwest before they make appearances at Arkansas’ Wakarusa Music Festival and Bonnaroo in Tennessee. Tickets go on sale at 12 p.m. local time on Saturday and are available through STS9’s official website. A complete list of tour dates is available below.
