Pierce The Veil Guitarist Seriously Injured In Accident

(Radio.com) Pierce The Veil guitarist Tony Perry was released from a hospital Monday after being treated for serious injuries sustained in a mountain biking accident last weekend.

An avid bicycle enthusiast, Perry's Instagram feed is filled with photos of riding through scenic terrain. According to a statement by the band's frontman Vic Fuentes, Perry "sustained 3 broken ribs, a torn shoulder, collapsed lung and a broken sternum, for which he needed immediate surgery to repair."

"Fortunately, his surgery went very well, and he is expected to make a full recovery," says Fuentes. "He was released from the hospital yesterday, but due to doctors orders, he will not be joining us for the beginning of Warped Tour until he is healthy enough to play."

"Your fan support is greatly appreciated, so be sure to send Tony some love while he's healing up," demands Fuentes. "Thanks and we'll see you all on Warped!" Read more here.
