Singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw, who was viciously assaulted by a group of men in New York City on August 8, has issued a statement just a week after he was released from the Bellevue Hospital Center to update fans on his condition.

“Instead of checking in from the tour, I’m writing as I recover at home. I’m feeling much better, but it will take a little bit more time to be back to 100 percent!” he told VH1.

“I’m overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from my fans, friends, and family. I can’t wait to get back out on tour and look forward to seeing you on the road sometime soon.”

DeGraw suffered a broken nose, a concussion, lacerations, and contusions when he was attacked by a gang of thugs near the National Underground, a bar he co-owns with his brother.

DeGraw ended up roughly a mile away from the scene of the assault, fleeing from the assailants before he was clipped by a cab.

Authorities say the “In Love with a Girl” singer’s recollection of the events are clouded by head injuries and possible intoxication.

“Honestly, I don’t remember much,” he confessed via Twitter.
