Evergreen Terrace drummer Kyle Mims was injured in a bike accident on Wednesday. The band posted this update:
After yesterday’s practice, Kyle (drummer) was in a horrific bike accident. He was rushed to the emergency room and released late last night full of stitches and a broken clavicle (collar bone). Unfortunately he will have to have surgery and physical therapy for the next 4-8 weeks. So for obvious reasons he will not be with us on our upcoming headlining shows or the Summer Slob tour with The Acacia Strain.
The band’s next album, Almost Home is due out this year.
