Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane has left the hospital after undergoing surgery for a blood clot on the surface of his brain.
"It is with great joy that we can announce that Ted has been discharged from hospital and is on the road to a full recovery," the British folk rock band said Friday in a statement on its website.
"The surgery went well, and the excellent medical team helping him are very pleased with his progress," the statement added.  "He has been nothing short of heroic in how he has handled the whole ordeal, and now it has been medically proved that he does indeed have a brain."
The statement also announced the cancellation of the remaining dates of Mumford & Sons' Summer Stampede Tour -- including the Bonnaroo music festival this weekend, as well as the upcoming Telluride Festival and a show in Kansas City.
The band canceled three other shows earlier this week after announcing that the 28-year-old Dwane -- who also plays drums and guitar -- was found to have a blood clot on the surface of his brain that needed to be removed.
