We're still waiting on word from the U.K. on our friends in Baroness. The four members of the metal band, which formed in Savannah, were among those on board a rented coach which plunged 30 feet over a cliff in Bath, England early Wednesday.
According to BBC News, two of the nine passengers on the band's tour bus suffered fractures and the other seven have also been hospitalized for minor injuries. There were no fatalities.
No names have been released.
Calls to the band's management office have not been returned.
Baroness moved its headquarters to Philadelphia in 2010, but the musicians - John Dyer Baizley, Mike Maggioni, Pete Adams and Allen Blickle - retain close ties to Savannah. Bassist Summer Welch left the band this year.
In July, the band released Yellow & Green, its fourth album for Relapse Records. All remaining European dates on the Yellow & Green tour have been canceled.
Singer/guitarist Baizley is also an accomplished artist whose work is featured on all Baroness album covers, as well as Set the Dial by Black Tusk, Gillian Welch's The Harrow and the Harvest and numerous others by Kylesa, Skeletonwitch and Darkest Hour.
