Hatebreed’s Chris Beattie To Miss Immediate Touring After Breaking Wrist And Elbow
Hatebreed bassist Chris Beattie will miss the bands immediate touring as a result of being involved in an accident. He said of his condition:
“On Monday a large branch fell off a tree I was cutting and knocked the ladder I was on out from under me. I fell 8 feet off the ladder onto the sidewalk and luckily was able to throw the chainsaw away from me on the way down. I broke my left wrist and right elbow. I will be going “under the knife” this Friday to correct the breaks and start the healing process. Jamey, Wayne, Matt, Frank and our manager Steve have all been very supportive and I look forward to getting back out on the stage as soon as I can. Please go out and support Hatebreed as they leave for a short US tour today. Thanks to Matt from Shadows Fall for filling in for me. See you soon.”
As Beattie mentioned, Shadows Fall guitarist Matt Bachand will be filling in for him on their ‘The Divinity Of Purpose Tour‘ together.
