I’m telling you, 2010 is not a good year to be a metal musician. So many unexpected deaths, so many accidents out there on the road. And now, And Hell Followed With and Ignominious Incarceration have been in a van accident that has put an end to their European tour.
According to reports, the bands were traveling through France and accidentally clipped a semi, which sent the vehicle spinning down the roadway. No one was killed in the crash but some of the band members were taken to the hospital for treatment of broken bones and other injuries.
“Basically we were making a late night drive back to the U.K. when we nicked a semi truck and got sent like a pinball down the freeway. Most of us sustained minor injuries…We’ll take back pain over death any day,” says guitarist Kyle McIlmurray. “The injuries and damage were so intense that we were forced to cancel the remainder of the tour and head back home. We are so thankful to have had such a great time with the guys in the other bands and play the shows that we did. Words cannot describe how bummed we are that we didn’t get to finish it up. We’ve never backed out on a tour like this.. But unfortunately it was out of our hands.”
