Despite being stuck in a hospital in the United Kingdom following last week’s tour bus crash, the members of Baroness are still smiling. The metal band has posted another update along with a photo.
If you’ve missed the last two Baroness news items, the Savannah, Ga., group’s tour bus crashed Aug. 15 near Bath, U.K., falling 30 feet from a viaduct. The accident occurred in the middle of the band’s European tour. BBC News reported that all nine people on board suffered some type of injury, including two people who had to be rescued by firefighters.
On Monday Baroness posted an update on its website from the hospital, once again thanking fans for their support.
“Thank you to all of you who have been sending the tidal wave of positivity our way. We are uplifted by its sheer magnitude, and power. Every single one of you is making our days and nights easier and our recovery quicker. Thank you all so much, we are truly lucky to have such incredible people on our side. A sincere and heartfelt thank you from each of us to each of you.”
A note at the bottom of the photo explained that the band member not pictured – guitarist/vocalist Pete Adams – was already back in the United States after being treated and released from the hospital last week.
Guitarist/vocalist John Baizley broke his left arm and left leg. Drummer Allen Blickle and bassist Matt Maggioni each suffered fractured vertebrae.
