Asking Alexandria Involved in Tour Bus Accident

Asking Alexandria Bus Crash

UK metalcore band Asking Alexandria were involved in a tour bus accident earlier today (Dec. 2) in the midst of their headlining run on the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour. No serious injuries have been reported, although the bus itself suffered some significant damage on the way from Cleveland, Ohio, to Chicago.

The news was reported by a series of Tweets by various band members, who all seem to be okay, although lead guitarist Ben Bruce is nursing a sprained ankle.

The Monster Outbreak tour also features As I Lay Dying, Memphis May Fire, I See Stars and Attila. In one of their tweets, Asking Alexandria promised fans that tonight’s Chicago show would still go on as planned. The North American tour is scheduled through Dec. 16 in Tampa, Fla.

Below are separate tweets from Bruce, drummer James Cassells and guitarist Cameron Liddell, as well as the entire band, regarding the bus crash:
