Last week, Twin Shadow’s two tour buses were involved in a pretty serious accident in Colorado, and today the band has issued a statement about the crashes, and postponed several tour dates. Here’s the full statement:
Driving on Friday morning April 17th, Twin Shadow’s tour bus hit a tractor-trailer on Interstate 70 in Aurora, Colorado. The circumstances surrounding the accident are being investigated.
There were 12 people on the tour bus consisting of band and crew. Everyone was taken to two local hospitals. At this time both driver John Crawford and Twin Shadow drummer Andy Bauer remain hospitalized, in serious condition. George Lewis Jr. AKA Twin Shadow will be undergoing reconstructive hand surgery this week.
While everyone involved in the accident recovers, Twin Shadow are postponing tour dates scheduled for April 21- May 22nd.
The band and crew send a heartfelt thanks to everyone in Colorado and beyond who have helped through this difficult time.
