According to a recent instagram post, influential hardcore/metal act Converge were involved in a crazy car accident while driving through Oregon last night, which was caused by some peskly black ice on the road. Luckily, none of the members were hurt, and neither was their van.
Here’s what the band had to say:
“After driving all day/evening, we hit a patch of black ice in the mountains of Oregon. We were forced to turn into a highway divider at 40mph in order to avoid sliding under a slew of 18 wheelers. The van spun 180 degrees after impact, and we were left facing the wrong direction on the highway. We spent a few hours prying our bumper off our front wheels. Thankfully, we are rolling again. Bands, be safe put there. Never take anything for granted.”
We wish the guys the best of luck and safetly while continuing on with their US tour, which you can view dates for by clicking here. The band’s new album, “All We Love We Leave Behind,” was released on October 9th through Epitaph/Deathwish, Inc.
