Glass Animals announced that their drummer, Joe Seaward, suffered a fractured skull and broken leg after getting hit by a truck while riding his bike in Dublin. Joe was entangled in the truck’s trailer and suffered a complex skull fracture that damaged the area of his brain responsible for speech.
Initially, Joe was only able to get out one word, “I,” but each day he is able to speak more. The band says he is “on the road to recovery.” They have cancelled all dates of their USA and European tours. Our prayers are with Joe and his family.
The band released this hopeful message on Thursday:
“It’s going to be a long, difficult, and winding road, but knowing how determined Joe is, and seeing how much his body has recovered already in the past 10 days, I am so optimistic that he will make it back to his cheeky old self.”
So sad! We love Glass Animals… So many bops!!
