British death metal act Ignominious Incarceration have been forced to cancel their headlining European tour with Detroit deathcore band And Hell Followed With after the bands' tour van crashed.

After a strong start to the tour, a few of the shows in mainland Europe fell through with promoters, so the bands had decided to head back to the UK to continue with the tour there and add some more shows.

Whilst driving through France on their way back to Calais, the van carrying the members of both Ignominious Incarceration and And Hell Followed With was involved in a crash on the motorway. All members are thankfully alive and well, although some had to be taken to hospital for injuries such as broken bones.

Ignominious Incarceration bassist Chris Ball comments: "Hey guys, sorry the tour got cut short but due to a major incident we are unable to do any shows for a while, we are all okay and still going strong. Up until the incident we had been enjoying the tour and have made some great friends in the process. We will be back as soon as we're all 100% fit enough to take to the stage again. In the mean time just keep your eyes and ears peeled for us hitting the studio at some point and new tour dates. Thanks."

And Hell Followed With guitarist Kyle McIlmurray describes the incident: "Basically we were making a late night drive back to the UK when we nicked a semi truck and got sent like a pinball down the freeway. Most of us sustained minor injuries compared to the guys in Ignom... Thankfully we're all alive. We'll take back pain over death any day. The injuries and damage were so intense that we were forced to cancel the remainder of the tour and head back home. We are so thankful to have had such a great time with the guys in the other bands and play the shows that we did. Words cannot describe how bummed we are that we didn't get to finish it up. We've never backed out on a tour like this... But unfortunately it was out of our hands.

Now that we're home with our families and safe we're going to get ready for the road in September with Suffokate and The Red Shore... It will most certainly be a banger!"

Sucks that these guys don't get to play, but at the end of the day what matters is everyone's alive and well.

Oh, boy, that's unfortunate about the crash. I hoep everyone is all right, as the news mostly states.

Here's hoping no one is too messed up. I really enjoyed Of Winter Born and wouldn't mind seeing these guys.

@Valentin: LOL That was mean!

Otherwise, I'm glad that every one survived without really major injuries. Speedy recovery to the guys of Ignominious Incarceration!
