The Dillinger Escape Plan Discuss Bus Crash In New Statement

As previously reported,  13 people were injured when a truck slammed into The Dillinger Escape Plan’s trailer and bus while they were on their way to Krakow, Poland. The members of the band are all fine, but the accident led to them cancelling their remaining European dates. Now, you can read a new statement from the group below.

“By now I’m sure many of you have already heard the news, but we wanted to communicate to you all directly. Not just to express the fact that nobody is in critical condition, but to express our gratitude to the fans who have seen us or who were going to see us on this tour, the crew who was also in the accident with us and part of why things have been going so smoothly, the various promoters and venue staff, Live Nation Poland who have been so helpful in the last 38 hours, the many police and medics and emergency workers who came to the scene, the hospital workers, and the friends and family who have reached out to us personally since yesterday morning. We were in the middle of playing some of our favorite shows we’ve ever played, and having a better time on and off stage than we have in a long time.

We were ripped out of sleep at 8:25AM to what still feels like a lucid nightmare. The various cacophony of metal bending and things breaking and people screaming and what felt like being hit by a missile. Without going into detail, not everyone is out of the hospital yet, some of us are hurt worse than others.

Questions like why did this happen, why are we alive and others not, why are the people from the Bay Area fire dead, why at all is anyone here or not. What the hell is all of this. Remember how valuable life is. We are all lucky to be alive. To just have any time at all.

Anyway, thanks to you all for caring. We were truly having an amazing time and we’re blessed to have you all, such a high caliber group of people. It’s been an honor to play these shows, but we unfortunately have to cancel the remainder of them, but we will reschedule every one that we can, and we’ll update more when we can. – Greg, Ben, Liam, Billy, Kevin“

Here’s an official statement:

“The Dillinger Escape Plan and crew were driving to their show in Krakow, Poland when their bus broke down and the driver had to pull over on the side of the road. A truck smashed into the trailer, which held all the band’s gear, before hitting the bus. No one is in critical condition but the band and crew are still being assessed for the extent of their injuries at Szpital Wojewodzki im. Jana Pawla II (John Paul Regional Hospital) in Zamosc.

The remaining dates in Croatia, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Spain and Belgium (running through March 5th) have been cancelled. Guitarist, Benjamin Weinman adds, “All the gear is destroyed and there are injuries – we are unable to continue this tour right now. The band and crew would like to thank the fans and press around the world for their concern and the Polish police and medical staff for their handling of the situation. We hope to get back to Europe soon.”
