Traveling across America as part of the Monster Energy Drink Outbreak Tour in promotion of their latest release, Stepped Up And Scratched, UK metalcore band Asking Alexandria were involved in a tour bus crash that left the band’s guitarist Ben Bruce with a sprained ankle.

According to the member’s various tweets, the band was somewhere between Cleveland and Chicago on December 2 when the tour bus mishap occurred.

“So our bus had a bit of a crash this morning!” The band tweeted from their official account. “Thankfully everyone involved is OK! Chicago we are still coming to rock you, don’t worry.”

“So we got in an accident this morning,” added the band’s drummer, James Cassells. “Thankfully everyone is OK!”

Casells also sent out a picture showing the damage to the band’s bus.

The band’s lead guitarist Ben Bruce added a couple of his own pictures of the bus damage, mentioning his sprained ankle.

Asking Alexandria is just the latest band to endure a tour bus crash this year, including Georgia metal band Baroness, whose bus plummeted more than 30 feet in a horrific accident in England earlier this past summer, severely injuring members of the band. Miraculously, there were no casualties in the incident.
