Last week, week we learned that Becker was in the intensive care unit following an encounter with black ice in Denver. Two touring crew members, Somekh and Berl, were also injured in the van accident and were receiving treatment as well.

The crew were set to kick off a handful of dates supporting Matt & Kim this week when they lost control of their van. The band were on the way to Denver with Somekh and Berl, their photographer and sound engineer respectively.

Later in the week, Somekh shared a message on Instagram describing what happened in a heartfelt post. You can read the full statement here.

Today, SWMRS have taken to Twitter to share the wonderful news that Natalie and Josh are now home.

They also revealed that they would be sharing the address of Max’s rehab clinic so that fans can flood it with supportive letters and cards.

“hey y’all- Natalie & Josh both made it home! Max is spending his last night in Wyoming tonight before being transferred to a live in Rehab Clinic. Once we have the address for that we want to flood it with letters of support and other gifts to make him feel as loved as he is.”

Some fans tweeted out that they had sent cards to the medical center, asking if they would need to send new ones.
