Lee and the rest of Born Of Osiris shared the following post on Facebook:

“Thanks for all the love and support you guys have been sending regarding a speedy recovery. My foot was not only dislocated, it was broken/fractured in multiple spots. Surgery was a success. As soon as I get a hard boot on this foot, even though the doctors aren’t recommending it – I plan on being out there jamming in a wheelchair on stage Dave Ghrol style! Trust me there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.” – Lee McKinney / BOO

“We will be off tour until further notice and will be not be attending Knotfest tomorrow. We will be back as soon as Lee is tour ready, playing more tracks off our new record.

Thanks guys


Get well soon, Lee! Make sure to buy Soul Sphere here.
