Mumford & Sons' bassist Ted Dwane was hospitalized Monday and will undergo emergency surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain, forcing the English folk rockers to postpone several shows.

In a statement posted to its website, Mumford & Sons wrote that the multi-instrumentalist had been "feeling unwell for a few days" and was taken to a hospital where doctors found the clot. 

"The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation, Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery," wrote the group.

As a result of the operation, Mumford & Sons announced that concerts set for Dallas tonight, June 11' Woodlands, Texas, on June 12; and New Orleans on June 13 would all be rescheduled as soon as they can. Tickets for this week's gigs will also be honored at their makeup dates. 

"We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour," added the band. "We're all wishing Ted a speedy recovery."

The quartet's next performance is set for June 15 at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn.

Mumford & Sons has been touring in support of their sophomore album, Babel, which not only had the biggest-selling debut of 2012 with 600,000 units sold, but also won a Grammy for Album of the Year.
