Craig Owens Cancels Tour Over Van Accident


Craig Owens, formerly of Chiodos and now on tour as a solo act, was involved in a severe van accident, causing them to postpone their tour.

We’re bummed to report that Year of the Knife aren’t the only ones who suffered a very serious accident last week. Owens and his crew were on their Volume One tour featuring Kurt Travis, Moxy, and Voila. It caused their van to flip multiple times. While everyone in the van was thankfully OK, it was dire enough to cause them to cancel and reschedule the remainder of their dates.

Owens took to Twitter to share details about the accident:

“To our friends and fans

Early this morning around 4 am, our crew were involved in a severe accident that lead to the van flipping multiple times.
Everyone is okay and recovering, but we will not be able to finish the Volume One tour at this time.
Vans and gear can be replaced, people cannot, and I am just thankful that thev’re alive.
We are looking into rescheduling the dates for the Volume One tour, and we encourage ticket holders to hold on to their tickets for the rescheduled dates.

Thank you all for your love and support and understanding.

Craig Owens”

We wish Owens and his team a speedy recovery so they can get back on the road soon.
