Serious Van Accident Forces the Acacia Strain to Drop Off Co-Headlining Tour With Veil of Maya
Deathcore act the Acacia Strain have been forced to leave their co-headlining slot on their tour with Veil of Maya after a "serious" van accident injured band members and crew.
The Acacia Strain have just informed fans through their Facebook page that a van accident has ended their run on the current tour. The band was scheduled to play another handful of dates with co-headliners Veil of Maya, along with Upon a Burning Body, Volumes and Twitching Tongues. Although this comes as bad news for fans, the good news is that nobody was killed or extensively injured by the crash.
The Acacia Strain posted the following statement:
It comes with heavy hearts and sadness to announce that The Acacia Strain will be leaving their Co-Headlining tour with Veil Of Maya due to a serious van accident. Members of the band and crew are being treated for minor injuries, nothing serious.
Frontman, Vincent Bennet commented:
Canceling tour dates is something we hate doing but we will make it up to all of you. We are all very grateful to be alive and will see you in the New Year."
As of now, the band is still scheduled to be a part of Hatebreed's 2013 European 'Persistence' tour, which also features Agnostic Front and H20, among other strong opening acts.
