The Acacia Strain has been forced to cancel the remaining dates of their co-headlining tour with Veil of Maya after a serious van accident left their van upside down on a highway and sent members of the group and crew to the hospital with minor injuries.

A statement from the band reads:

It comes with heavy hearts and sadness to announce that The Acacia Strain will be leaving their co-headlining tour with Veil Of Maya due to a serious van accident. Members of the band and crew are being treated for minor injuries.

Front man Vincent Bennett commented, "Canceling tour dates is something we hate doing but we will make it up to all of you. We are all very grateful to be alive and will see you in the New Year."

The band also posted a photo of the accident on their Facebook page, showing the overturned van and trailer, along with belongings and gear across the highway.

We're glad nobody was seriously injured, and we hope the band can get back on the road soon.
