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.
The accident happened at around 11:30 AM local time at the junction of Brassknocker Hill and the A36 in Bath. The band's tour bus crashed and fell 30 feet over a viaduct!
Seven people were taken to the Royal United Hospital in Bath, while two others — who were trapped and had to be rescued by firefighters — have been transported to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol. "Those people are now being treated by ambulance staff," a fire service spokesman told BBC News.
UPDATE from the bands publicist: Baroness were in a serious bus accident last night near Bath, England. The band members and crew are recovering at local hospitals. All tour dates are postponed until further notice.
