Continents Guitarist Speaks On His Brutal Injury


Continents guitarist Tom Weaver has provided the below update on the injury and subsequent surgery he received following a “van mosh” gone wrong. As previously reported, the injury has forced him to recover at home while the bands tech fills in for him.

“Hey everyone,

So yeah, bit of an explanation of that photo yesterday. Some of you might remember that about 3 weeks ago I broke my eye socket while on tour, well, the only way to straighten it out again and strengthen it was to unzip my head across the top, peel the skin off my face as far down as my nose, then screw a metal plate into my eye socket before stapling me back together (as seen in the photo).

It sucks pretty bad, but I’ve been high as shit on tramadol and morphine since getting out of theatre so it’s cool haha. I’ll be out of action for a while, but I’ll be back playing shows as soon as I’m healed up.
