The Ghost Inside are still recovering from their horrific tour bus crash a few weeks ago which left their driver Gregory Hoke dead, and has left the band suffering multiple injuries. In an update on the band’s Facebook page, the band said they’re concentrating on recovering, thanking fans and friends for all the support.
Said the band via Facebook:
“I want to share a little bit more with you about how things are going here. The truth is, there are a lot of very serious injuries. We are dealing with badly broken legs and ankles, cracked pelvises, and fractured vertebrae that require screws, plates, rods, and careful surgery to repair. Over the last week most of these procedures have been completed very successfully, but there are still a couple more to go, and most of the guys are still in the hospital. It is yet another blessing that we are in a place with so many remarkable doctors and surgeons to make this possible.”
Don’t expect to see the band on stage anytime soon, as they’ve cancelled all upcoming shows:
“It is going to be a long road for us to quite literally be back on our feet. We have many months of recovery, rehabilitation, and physical therapy ahead. For some of us, simply learning to walk again will be a monumental undertaking. For now, we must put all shows on hold and focus only on our health.”
The band thanked many people behind the scenes, including John Youngman, Mark Mercado, and Dave Shapiro. They also mentioned the help they’ve received from Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman who they say, “put his countless resources into play to ease the burdens upon us and our loved ones.”
