Sylosis frontman Josh Middleton recently gave the following update via the bands Facebook page regarding their recent RV accident, which has forced them to drop off their tour with Trivium, DevilDriver, and After The Burial.
“Myself, Rob [Callard, drums] and [Alex] Bailey [rhythm guitar] have just been released after over ten hours in hospital. Carl [Parnell, bass] 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 hospitalized, 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 [as soon as possible] to recover.
“We want to thank the paramedics, the passersby 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.”
