Hinder hurt in bus crash
Members of Hinder have spent a night in hospital after a tour bus crash, forcing them to cancel a concert planned for this weekend.
They were on the road following a show in Port Huron, Michican, when the incident occurred.
The band have been touring without frontman Austin Winkler, who has gone to rehab for the second time in his career. Jared Weeks of Saving Abel has been standing in, with Marshall Dutton of Drankmore filling in on some dates.
They say in a statement: “Hinder regrets to inform their fans that they must withdraw from their appearance at the Boise Music Festival on July 27.
“When the band was traveling on their tour bus, they were unexpectedly cut off by another vehicle. Members of the band and crew suffered injuries and spent the night in ER. Under doctor’s orders, the band will be taking some time off to heal, and plans to resume their tour on August 10 in at the Miami County Fair in Troy, Ohio.”
Earlier this month they confirmed they’d be continuing their current US tour without Winkler, saying: “Austin has decided to temporarily leave the tour for personal reasons. Our thoughts and prayers are with him in this time and we know that he will be just fine.
“The band has decided, instead of cancelling shows and leaving our diehard fans hanging, we’re going to keep the good times rolling on the road this summer. We have some guests filling in to help us out and promise you won’t be disappointed! For those of you that have your tickets already, get ready for a great time; for those of you that don’t, you won’t want to miss out!”
Hinder are continuing to support fourth album Welcome To The Freakshow, which was released last year.
