Lamb Of God’s Chris Adler Speaks Of 2017 Motorcycle Crash & Injuries That Kept Him From Touring This Summer

When it was revealed that drummer Chris Adler would be sitting out Lamb Of God‘s dates with Slayer, Anthrax, Testament and Napalm Death, earlier this summer, the band merely cited “unforeseen circumstances” as the reason (Art Cruz of Prong/Winds Of Plague, etc. fame would go on to fill-in for him on that run.)

Adler himself has now revealed that the time off came as the result of complications from injuries he suffered after being involved in a motorcycle accident late last year that left him with broken bones and required surgery. Speaking via Instagram, he commented:

“Thank you all for the overwhelming amount of well wishes in response to my current absence from the Lamb Of God shows. I’m humbled to know how many and how much you care.

I had a motorcycle accident late last year that shattered my collarbone and right shoulder and also chipped bones in my hip. While surgery corrected the broken bones and I was able to play earlier this year, I experienced some issues related to the injuries that needed to be addressed with a rigorous schedule of physical and occupational therapy which, is what I have been doing regularly since July.

I am making great progress in addition to playing/practicing every day. Playing drums is what I do and refuse to do it poorly. I will be back behind the kit ASAP. Thanks again for the love! See you soon, Chris
