SWMRS vocalist Max Becker is in intensive care following a bus crash

SWMRS guitarist/vocalist Max Becker is currently in intensive care following a bus crash.

The band are on the road in the US in support of their latest album 'Berkeley's On Fire', with the accident taking place last night (Monday, 29th October) between Oakland and Denver.

A statement from the band explains: "Max, Josh, and Natalie encountered black ice on the road, causing them to lose control of the van. Thankfully, first responders were able to quickly get them to an incredible team of doctors in the intensive care unit at a hospital in Wyoming, and everyone is going to be ok."

They add: "It's going to be a long road to recovery, but we all know that if anyone can do it, Max can."

Read the full message below. The band's remaining 2019 shows are cancelled, but their UK trip for early 2020 currently still stands.
