SYLOSIS Check Out Of Hospital After RV Crash, Check In With New Update
We were shocked to learn that British metalcore act Sylosis got into an RV accident when they crashed into a tractor trailer two nights ago, forcing the band to drop off their current tour. Thankfully, it looks like the band will be ok.
Frontman Josh Middleton checked in to the band's official Facebook page with the following update:
Hey everyone, Josh here. Myself, Rob and Bailey have just been released after over ten hours in hospital. Carl is being kept in overnight as he's in too much pain to walk but should hopefully be released tomorrow morning (Montreal time) once some of his muscle pain/swelling has subsided.
All four of us and our driver were hospitalised but seeing as Bailey was the only one who didn't get taken in on a stretcher and a neck brace, he wasn't treated as urgently. He's just had his back sewn up and is off to the scrap yard where the RV was taken to get people's clothes and some personal items – hero.
We're all very lucky. We've mostly just been stitched up (my eyebrow, a few on Carl's legs and Bailey's back), badly bruised and what feels like full body whiplash. In car accident terms we're alright but in general terms we're not physically capable of continuing on with the tour and aim to get back to our families and friends asap to recover.
We want to thank the paramedics, the passers by who came to our help, the staff at the hospital and all of the fans and bands that have wished us well. It means the world to us.
It's very relieving to hear that the band will be okay after some rest and recuperation. An accident of this magnitude is nothing to scoff at. We here at Metal Injection wish the band a speedy recovery, and hopefully, a return to playing live shows soon.
