Glass Animals have canceled their European and North American dates after their drummer Joe Seaward was injured in a crash while cycling in Dublin. Seaward is recovering from a broken leg and fractured skull after being hit by a truck.
“The operation was successful, but the collapsed skull bruised and damaged the area of the brain responsible for speech,” band frontman Dave Bayley wrote on Facebook. “ Initially joe was only able to get out one word…’I’…but each day he is finding more.”
We wish Joe Seaward a speedy recovery. The band’s full statement is below:
