The Faceless were involved in a serious van accident on Thursday evening, which entailed their vehicle abruptly coming upon a large group of moose covering all lanes of the highway they were traveling on. While the van was undoubtedly totaled, all members of the band walked away unscathed and will continue their current Canadian headlining tour with Rings Of Saturn, Archspire, Fallujah, Fatality and Black Crown Initiate, as scheduled. You can check out an official statement from the band, as well as a brief message and picture of the van from guitarist Michael "Machine" Keene, below.
"To elaborate on the events of last night, in a freak accident, we ended up totaling our vehicle on a stretch of Canadian highway. A pack of moose were covering all lanes of the highway and it was completely unavoidable. Some how we all managed to walk away totally unharmed, though a bit shaken up.
Through the help of our tour mates in Fallujah, Black Crown Initiate and Archspire, we managed to get to a tow yard and onward to a rental facility to get a vehicle and get back on the road. We WILL be playing the remaining tour dates on our current headline tour.
Thank you for all the support in the past few hours and we hope to see you at the upcoming shows."
"Shortly after switching to a van, because our driver quit on us, we have now totaled said van by hitting a moose in Canada. I honestly can't believe we're all alive and no one was hurt."
