Twin Shadow (George Lewis Jr.) will undergo reconstructive hand surgery and his drummer, Andy Bauer, is in serious condition after their tour bus "hit a tractor-trailer" in Colorado on Friday morning according to an official release (below). The tour bus driver is also in serious condition and several others were also hospitalized.
Unedited Official Statement (April 20, 2015):
"Driving on Friday morning April 17th, Twin Shadow's tour bus hit a tractor-trailer on Interstate 70 in Aurora, Colorado. The circumstances surrounding the accident are being investigated.
There were 12 people on the tour bus consisting of band and crew. Everyone was taken to two local hospitals. At this time both driver John Crawford and Twin Shadow drummer Andy Bauer remain hospitalized, in serious condition. George Lewis Jr. AKA Twin Shadow will be undergoing reconstructive hand surgery this week.
While everyone involved in the accident recovers, Twin Shadow are postponing tour dates scheduled for April 21- May 22nd.
The band and crew send a heartfelt thanks to everyone in Colorado and beyond who have helped through this difficult time.
We will update you as we have more information."
Twin Shadow were scheduled to play at Bluebird Theater in Denver on Friday which was obviously cancelled as well. Their previous show was at the Grenada Theater in Kansas. Pitchfork published photos of the bus from earlier reports which, assuming everyone ends up ok, makes things look like they could have been even worse.
