TDEP involved in bus accident

2017-02-12 by Eric White | 70 Comments
Thirteen people were injured after a semi-truck collided with The Dillinger Escape Plan's tour bus en route to a performance in Krakow, Poland.

According to a spokeswoman for the Radomsko PD, the band members were hospitalized and are awaiting further tests but none were seriously hurt. The driver of the truck that collided with the parked bus, however, retained the most injuries and is currently hospitalized.

The band were scheduled to play in Krakow but the show has been cancelled.


UPDATE:
Information from the band confirms that nobody retained critical injuries but states that all of the bands gear has been destroyed and the remaining dates of the tour are cancelled. See guitarist Ben Weinman's statement below:

"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."

ns almost got reduced to a bloody wreckage twice last year, one of which involved a semi truck running a red light on my green, i slammed on my break and missed it by probably a foot and watched as it did the same at another junction/ i've always loved how you can be abidng the road rules and have your life taken in a instant by some degenerate truckie tweaking out

Guys, everyone was fine, calm down. There's nothing wrong with a dark humor joke, especially when all of the members of the band were unharmed bar minor injuries.

"The driver of the truck that collided with the parked bus"
"collided with the parked bus"
"collided...parked bus"

How the fuck do you hit an unmoving object? Sue that pea-brain truckmonkey and his company for the lost profits from the band touring.

Sorry, I work in an industrial part of town and deal with primarily truckers on a daily basis. As a rule, they don't know what they're doing and cause accidents as a hobby.

I don't get the people who take pleasure in criticising a band that's been through a traumatic experience and lost a lot of VERY expensive equipment, for asking fans for help to replace it. They don't seem to understand that gear is expensive and bands don't make much money nowadays, and it's stupidly hard to get insurance as a musician.

Can you imagine them actually dying from this on their farewell tour? Jesus Christ talk about bad timing. Glad to know they made it out ok. Wondering if they will try to make up those last tour dates at a later time.

You never know, maybe the experience inspires them to write a new album. Maybe coming closer to death inspires them to come out with a Christian Rock album.

AM I the only one that thinks this is fitting though for them as a band. Like they always destroyed shit and this is their last tour. Kinda morbid to say but it makes sense for this band that this would happen to them. lol
