Kylesa bassist injured in bike accident

Kylesa bassist/vocalist Corey Barhorst was injured in a bike accident yesterday, forcing the band to cancel their appearance at this weekend's This Is For You Fest in Daytona, FL. The group has issued the following statement: "Corey got into a bad bike wreck this evening on the way to practice and hurt himself badly. He flipped on his bike and landed face first onto the concrete, knocking out his front teeth. His hands and face are badly bruised, cut and swollen and he has to have emergency dental surgery tomorrow because his nerves were exposed in the fall. this is obviously really shitty and we hope that he gets better soon. Send him love...I'm not sure if we will cancel all the upcoming shows (through Jan 5) or just the first few...I will post asap either way. To everyone who came to the This is For You Fest in Daytona to see us, we are really sorry and we hope you understand. We will come back to Florida and make it up to you this spring."
