BARONESS Release Update On Condition Of Bandmembers Involved In Serious Bus Crash!
As previously reported, last night BARONESS was involved in a serious accident while driving between shows as they tour the U.K in support of their NEW album 'Yellow & Green' (available now via Relapse Records). The band played at The Fleece in Bristol on the night of August 14th. They were on their way to Southampton when the accident happened.
Earlier today, BARONESS' publicist released the following update regarding the medical condition of the band members:
"The band members of BARONESS and their crew are recovering from injuries sustained after their tour bus crashed outside of Bath, England early on Wednesday morning.
"John Baizley [rhythm guitar, lead vocals] has broken his left arm and left leg. Allen Blickle [drums] and Matt Maggioni [bass] each suffered fractured vertebrae. All three remain in the hospital as of this writing. Pete Adams [lead guitar, vocals] has been treated and released from the hospital.
"Three of the five crew members who were on the bus have also been treated and released. One member is still undergoing testing. The driver of the bus remains in critical condition.
"Please stay tuned for further updates. Thank you for all the support during this extremely difficult time."
