Jason Pierce, the lead singer of British space rock band Spiritualized, is on the mend after an undisclosed illness left him in intensive care. According to the band's official site, Pierce was in the hospital and after "nearly dying twice in the last 2 and half weeks Jason has now and fantastically made an alarming and brilliant recovery and is due home today." The message from Pierce's partner Juliette says, "He is still fragile and really weak weighing in at maybe 8 stone [approx 112 lbs] but love and happiness on his side [sic]." The band's most recent album was 2003's Amazing Grace, which Pierce described as "religious music for non-churchgoers" in a BBC Interview.
