An unspecified member of Power Trip was involved in a bicycle accident earlier this week forcing the band to cancel their scheduled appearance at the Dark Lord Day festival in Munster, IN this coming weekend. The accident requires “immediate surgery,” according to a post on the band’s Facebook page . Their next shows are on May 30th and June 1st in their native Texas, followed by a European tour that launches on June 7th, and the band seems intent on making sure all of those happen.
The band’s statement reads as follows:
“We’re stunned and sad to announce that we’ve been forced to cancel our set tomorrow at Dark Lord Day. One of us was in a serious bicycle accident two days ago, but even after still wanting to play the show, was told by doctors this morning that he is not cleared to fly and requires immediate surgery. He’s going to be alright but we do not know much more than that. We apologize to anyone who was excited to see us; this was a festival we’ve wanted to play for years, featuring two of our most respected influences in Nuclear Assault and Sacred Reich. Unfortunately right now the health and well-being of every member of this group is our biggest concern.
“In the meantime, we’re working out a killer surprise to make up for this show in the future, and we will be spending the rest of the month healing and stabilizing ourselves to ensure we will not have to cancel any more shows. Our next shows are May 30th in San Antonio and June 1st in Dallas. European dates announced soon.
“Thank you for your understanding and see you soon.”
We wish you all the best, Mr. Unspecified Member, and hope you heal up quickly. Via MetalSucks
