What does Nathan Sykes of The Wanted have in common with Adele and John Mayer? (Besides the obvious fact of being in the music industry, that is.) Well, Nathan will be undergoing throat surgery on April 20th, which is also his 20th birthday!

The boy bander will be going under the knife this week to repair a hemorrhaging nodule on his vocal chords and will have to remain quiet for an entire month to let everything heal properly. One whole month without singing let alone talking is going to be difficult.

The rest of The Wanted posted the news on their Facebook page, writing, “Our lil Nath has to go in for an op on his throat on his birthday to make him better so join us wishing him well. We love ya! #GetWellNath.”

The band’s rep released an official statement on the issue, saying the surgery comes with an “unforeseen hiatus,” and “The priority for Nathan, his label and management is that he is given time to recover and receive the best treatment possible.” The Wanted will continue work without him but it definitely won’t be the same!
