Published Apr 17, 2015Twin Shadow have been touring in support of the recent album Eclipse, but things have taken scary turn for George Lewis Jr. and his bandmates, since they've been involved in a multiple-vehicle accident on a Colorado highway.
According to the Denver Post [via Pitchfork], 12 people were injured in the crash, which happened on Interstate 70 and involved two busses, two semi-tractor trailers and a motor home. The injuries apparently range from minor to serious, but more information isn't currently known. Seven people have been hospitalized.
A Post reporter on the scene said that the bus carrying Twin Shadow's crew was seriously damaged, while the bus with the band members was less severely hit. The band members were apparently not transported from the scene. That being said, Twin Shadow's bassist/keyboardist Spencer Zahn texted his mother to say, "I've been in an accident. I'm in pain but I am conscious. Help is here."
Fog was a factor, and snow and rain were falling at the time. The crash happened around 8:30 a.m. local time. The band were driving from Lawrence, KS, to Denver for a show.
Judging by this report, it seems rather unlikely that tonight's Denver show will go ahead, but nothing has been announced so far in regards to any cancellation, and it's not clear whether the rest of the tour will be affected.
