Dillinger Escape Plan Involved In Serious Bus Collision While Touring Europe

While touring across Europe in support of latest album “Dissociation” (reviewed here), The Dillinger Escape Plan has been involved with a major accident. According to the band’s vehicle crashed while traveling to Krakow. ITV reported:

Aneta Wlazlowska, a spokeswoman for Radomsko police, said the band members were not seriously hurt but were taken to hospital for further tests. She said the most injured person in the crash was the driver of the lorry that hit the band’s tour bus, which was parked partly on the road and hard shoulder. The New Jersey band were due to play in Krakow on Sunday, but the gig has been cancelled.

Following the initial news, Metal Injection issued this statement after speaking with DEP’s Ben Weinman:

I spoke with Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman about the current situation, and he said “Everyone is alive, a few injuries, but it could be much worse.” He explained that the bus was hit from the back, with the truck smashing through their gear before continuing to plow into the bus itself. The impact was serious and banged them up pretty good. The whole situation sounds horrific.

Unfortunately, it seems as though the fate of the band’s gear was not as lucky as the members, as you can see from the phone photo Ben had sent. Needless to say, the show in Krakow has been canceled. No word yet on what will happen with the rest of the tour. The next scheduled show is this Tuesday in Germany. We’re just happy everyone in the band is alive, and wish them a speedy recovery!

We’ll update you with more info when a statement is officially released from any of the Dillinger Escape Plan channels.
