Glass Animals drummer Joe Seaward is recovering after being "hit by a truck while on his bike"

Glass Animals drummer Joe Seaward has taken a ‘bit of a knock’ while out on his bike, according to the band.

A message posted to Instagram reads: “Last Monday my best friend, and our drummer Joe was hit by a truck while on his bike here in Dublin. His leg was broken on impact and he became tangled in the truck’s trailer where his skull suffered a complex fracture.

“Miraculously and thankfully,” it continues, “he is alive. After a couple [of] long operations he is now on the road to recovery.

“It’s going to be a long, difficult and winding road, but knowing how determined Joe is, and seeing how much his body has recovered already in the past 10 days, I am so optimistic that he will make it back to his cheeky old self”

The news comes after the immediate cancellation of three festival shows last week, presumably after the incident occured. At the time, the band wrote: “We wouldn’t do this lightly but unfortunately some things have happened in the last couple of days that are out of our control,” they explain.

“We’ll update you with more information asap and huge apologies to everyone intending to come to those shows. We would never cancel unless we absolutely had to.”
