Twin Shadow Cancels Additional Dates, Offers Injury Update

Twin Shadow Cancels Additional Dates, Offers Injury Update
This spring, Twin Shadow was involved in a devastating bus crash, and although George Lewis Jr. and company have since performed on late-night television, they have yet to return to the road. Having previously cancelled their spring dates, they've now axed all of their shows through August.

Lewis announced the news in a Tumblr post titled "We'll Be Back Soon." He explained that he has undergone surgery on his hand and is working on regaining the ability to play an instrument. Unfortunately, he has discovered an additional injury in his knee and will need to undergo physical therapy in order to avoid surgery.

The bulk of the newly cancelled shows are in Europe, but there's also one Canadian date: Montreal's Osheaga festival.

See the latest message from Lewis below, and scroll past that to see Twin Shadow's updated tour schedule.

As many of you know, towards the end of our North American Eclipse tour we were involved in a serious tour bus accident that left members of our crew and band as well as myself, injured. The injuries vary from minor to very serious.

Recently I had reconstructive hand surgery and have begun physical therapy. I'm working hard to regain basic function in my hand and to get to a place where I can play an instrument again.

The tricky part of being involved in something like this is that certain injuries creep up on you long after the accident. Recently I started experiencing pain in my left knee and went to see a doctor. Upon reviewing my MRI the doctor found a tear in my PCL and Meniscus. Fortunately, surgery can be avoided with physical therapy and limiting the stress I put on my knee.

Doing shows at the moment would put me at risk of not fully recovering and needing knee surgery. As a result I am sad to say that we need to cancel the remainder of our shows through mid-August. Taking this time to heal is important for everyone affected by the accident. We plan on being fully recovered and back on the road by mid-August. Thank you to the Twin Shadow family and those of you who continue to support us.
