The Dillinger Escape Plan have cancelled the remainder of their European tour following a bus crash in Poland over the weekend, which left thirteen people injured.
According to the Associated Press, the band’s tour bus was parked on the side of a road ahead of a show in Krakow on Sunday when a truck crashed into it. Police said that members of the band were taken to hospital, but none were seriously injured.
In a statement yesterday, guitarist Ben Weinman: “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”.
The tour began in the UK in January. US festivals dates starting in April are as yet unaffected.
As previously reported, the band last year announced plans to split after touring their latest album, ‘Dissociation’.
