If you happened to recently see the Bingo Player’s, you’ll have noticed that it’s been a one man show for about a month. Maarten has been performing while Paul has been in and out of the hospital due to health complications. These two recently posted on their website informing fans that Paul has in fact been diagnosed with cancer. Despite this unfortunate news, Paul has stayed optimistic and plans on continuing his producing and running Hysteria Records while Maarten will represent them on tour. Paul even posted a letter to fans stating:

“As some of you may know, I have been in the hospital over the past few weeks and I have not been at some of the recent shows while seeking medical treatment. I now have the results back and I wanted to let you know that I have been diagnosed with cancer.

As devastating as this news has been for me and my family, I am ready to fight this.

From the beginning, Bingo Players has been about me and Maarten sharing the music that we love, both through our records and with you at shows. I will continue to be actively involved in all areas of Bingo Players and Hysteria Records with Maarten. But for the foreseeable future Maarten will be representing both of us on the road, while I’ll be seeking medical treatment as well as working in the studio, taking lead on running our label etc.

All shows that are planned will still be happening and we will have more tour announcements coming. For us, we want to continue to help create those meaningful and memorable experiences from our music and shows, but as you can imagine in light of this news, we need to make some adjustments and we hope you understand. As I said earlier I’m ready to fight this thing and hope to be on that stage again with you guys in the future!!!!!

Much Love,

We all wish for Paul’s health and a speedy recovery through this tough time.
