Baroness to tour U.K. again after crash horror

Rockers Baroness will return to the U.K. later this year (13) for their first tour of the country since their frontman almost died in a terrifying tour bus crash. The American group cancelled all its remaining 2012 dates following the horrific accident last August (12), when the coach they were travelling in plunged from a viaduct near Bath, England.
All four bandmembers were hospitalised and singer John Baizley underwent an eight-hour operation to put his shattered arm back together. He also broke his left leg and endured months of painful physiotherapy as he recovered from his injuries.
The group was dealt a further blow when drummer Allen Bickle and bass player Matt Maggioni quit in the aftermath of the crash, but Baroness are bouncing back with a new line-up and a new U.K. tour to put the traumatic experience firmly behind them.
The rockers, including new members Nick Jost and Sebastian Thomson, will return to the U.K. in the autumn (13) for a series of shows which conclude in London on 24 October (13).
