Dan Treacy of Television Personalities in coma following surgery

Today, NME announced the shocking news that Dan Treacy, the lovable frontman of Television Personalities, is currently in an induced coma. Treacy recently underwent surgery to extricate a blood clot from his brain (a police investigation is “underway”) and has been in a coma now for roughly 48 hours.

His band members TexasBob Juarez, Mike Stone, and Arnau Obiols issued a statement: “The band is very much concerned for our dear friend and Brother Daniel at this time, and we are all praying for a recovery.”

Dan Treacy is now 51 years old. The most recent Television Personalities album, A Memory is Better Than Nothing, was released last year.
