Glass Animals‘ drummer Joe Seaward is luckily to be alive after being hit by a truck while riding his bicycle in Dublin earlier this week. The young musician has suffered multiple severe injuries including a broken leg and a complex skull fracture. As a result, the Glass Animals have been forced to cancel their upcoming tour with Beck and all of their remaining shows for the year.
Our hearts go out to Joe, his family, Glass Animals, and their fans during this incredibly trying time. We wish him a speedy and straightforward recovery, and hope that he and the band can come back and visit us when he’s all healed-up.
