Some scary news hit the web yesterday via Converge’s Facebook page. While on their current tour driving from Seattle to Portland the band was in a van accident. As you probably saw in the headline luckily no one was hurt. The full statement from the band can be seen below and you can check out the rest of their tour dates here.
Yesterday, after ten hours of driving, we hit black ice in the Oregon mountains. We were forced to crash into a highway divider in order to keep from sliding under 18 wheelers. Though we were all alright, we were precariously stuck facing the wrong direction on the highway for a few hours. With a little ingenuity and the help of a highway worker with some tow chains, we managed to pry our bumper off our front wheels. A few hours later, we were back on the road. Never take anything for granted. Just got to Seattle, time for a positive show. Thanks people.
