Greg Norton of the new “punk hardcore power trio” UltraBomb and best known as the mustachioed bass player for Hüsker Dü has tested positive for prostate cancer, and a GoFundMe has been set up to help him with his looming medical expenses.

On his facebook, Norton revealed: “At the beginning of June, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. My doctors at the Mayo Clinic believe I have excellent odds, but we need to get in right away and move forward with treatment and surgery.”

The unfortunate news comes just as UltraBomb was about to embark on a U.K. tour to support their upcoming new record ‘Time To Burn.‘ The album was released on streaming platforms today – July 15th – and the hard copy will be out August 12th.

Fellow UltraBomb band members Jamie Oliver (U.K. Subs), singer-guitarist Finny McConnell (The Mahones), and Norton’s friends have set up the GoFundMe and reference the daunting health coverage issues in the U.S. by saying  “We can’t imagine the stress and anxiety he and his family must be going through. One thing that’s for sure, though, is that the cost of treatment in the United States is eyewatering.
