The Acacia Strain missed two shows on their current North American tour after their van was hit by an alleged drunk driver.
Tourmates Sylar later suffered a blow of their own when their vehicle was broken into and all their money was stolen.
The bands are on the road with Emmure, Stray From The Path, Fit For A King and Kublai Khan. But The Acacia Strain were unable to reach shows in Montreal and Toronto after the crash in Hartford, Connecticut.
Frontman Vincent Bennett reported: “Van axle is fucked. We cannot safely drive right now. Might not make Canada.” He also posted a picture of the damaged van with the accused driver in the background receiving attention from a police officer.
The other bands did make it to Canada – but Sylar have been left penniless after the break-in. They say: “We’re now back to square one financially and in a different country.” But they vow: “We will continue this tour no matter what.”
They’ve asked fans to buy merchandise to help fund the rest of the trek, which runs until December 21.
