Borknagar Frontman Hospitalized After Suffering Head Injury

Borknagar frontman Andreas “Vintersong” Hedlund has been hospitalized after suffering a head injury. The band commented on his injury:

“This have been a rough week. Seven days ago Mr. V was seriously injured in an falling accident. This resulted in multiple fractures to the skull, brain hemorrhage and momentary dysfunctional hearing on one ear. We have intentionally kept this off the radar, till he felt fit enough to update the public himself. So his post on Facebook today should be regarded as an heartwarming and uplifting statement of his recovery.

We would like to wish our collegua and dear friend all the best, the best possible treatment and a speedy recovery to full health. Also all the best to his closest family, his wife and kids in this difficult situation.

In the current situation Mr. V’ process of recovery and regaining health is the most important thing. The release of our new album might be delayed accordingly, as there is absolutely no option to leave our bro behind or in any way compromise on his recovery.

Get well bro!

—- Ø”

Meanwhile, Hedlund himself offered:

“Seven days ago I was injured in an accident leading to some quite heavy down grade of my physical condition. I fell down and crashed head first on a concrete floor while helping out with a moving some furniture. The accident is only to be blamed by myself due to stress andnot paying enough attention to saftey issues.

I got hurt in different ways. The most significant is three cracks in my head.bleeding in my brain and a disfunctional ear.

Im now trying to cure myself at the hospital and come back full strengt asap. As where I am in my recovery I wish to focus on getting better and not to go through the whole scenario over and over again. Take care of eachother…..life can show its ugly face when you least expect it

Mr V”

The Word Alive Premiere “The Runaway” Music Video

The Word Alive have debuted their music video for their song “The Runaway” below via wearethewordalive.com. Band frontman Tyler “Telle” Smith offered with the clip:

“At this point in our career we felt it would be cool to showcase what gave us our start getting into music. The stories of how we got our start aren’t that dissimilar from many of our fans getting their start currently.

I wrote the majority of the treatment which was a new experiment for us. We wanted to put out an idea and have directors come to us with their adaptations of our plan. It just so happened that we felt the person most passionate about the process was Jeremy Tremp.

Jeremy has filmed many videos for Luke as well as a “Getting To Know The Band” video for us a couple years ago. The video shoot was stress free, we actually shot it in Arizona and invited a handful of home state fans to participate.

Instead of shooting a high budget looking video we stripped everything down and just jammed in a garage the way so many of us have in our early days. It felt good to just capture some of the essence of being naive and just loving playing music with your best friends.

The meaning of the lyrics behind the song are how music has been the anchor for our lives. Everyone goes through crazy shit from time to time and we all have found peace through music in those moments. We feel it’s important to write about what music can do, because it’s the most powerful thing we know. It changed our lives, and we hope people watch “The Runaway” and feel that power music holds.

Telle Smith
