Every Time I Die is currently doing a run for their 20 years as a band, but it appears as though their guitarist Andy Williams has had a bit of bad luck on the tour.
Revealed in an Instagram post yesterday, the guitarist ruptured his bicep earlier in the month, but that hasn’t stopped him from playing shows on the winter tour.
“No rest for the wicked. Tore my bicep 2 1/2 weeks ago,” Williams captioned in the post. “Mine wasn’t as severe as any of theres, but enough to roll my shit up. Please be gentle with me on this tour and don’t be a dick if I don’t wanna pick you up. Thanks. ”
Williams then went into further detail on how he got the injury during an episode of his podcast, to which he explained that he ruptured his bicep during a match.
For those who don’t know, Williams wrestles on the side, and during a tag match a couple of weeks ago, he accidentally popped his bicep after a move that dealt with the ropes around the ring.
Ouch. Not to mention he’s been playing shows pretty regularly, but that doesn’t seem to have bothered the guitarist.
