Baroness have posted their first update since their serious accident in August. Vocalist/guitarist John Baizley broke his left arm and leg, drummer Allen Blickle and Matt Maggioni each suffered fractured vertebrae while guitar player Pete Adams was treated for minor injuries. Baizley posted a lengthy account of the experience and the progress since then:
While I cannot lift a glass of water to my lips to drink with my left arm and hand, I am still able to play music with it. I will require a lot of therapy in order to recover mobility and strength, but I am encouraged by the ability I have been allowed. I have no regrets about touring. I don’t blame music or the touring lifestyle for my current physical state, or for the accident itself. It happened the same way all things happen: randomly. If I was a carpenter, and I was injured on the way to the job-site, I wouldn’t consider quitting my job. That is truly how I see this situation. Till the wheels fall off.
The band was supporting their 2012 album, Yellow & Green , but touring remains cancelled for the remainder of the year.
