Andrew Tkaczyk of The Ghost Inside lost his leg during the accident. He released a post and statement on Instagram, which can be found here. Wishing him the best.
So the rumors are true everyone! Unfortunately I did lose my leg in this accident. This is one injury among many others such as fractures in my ribs, spine, and hip along with some ligament tears in my rotator cuff and Labrum. I have remained in positive and good spirits since I woke up from a 10 day coma in November to the sight of my missing leg. Not going to let it stop me. I don't care what anyone says. It's a long road ahead, but I WILL play drums again. Can't wait to get back on the kit. Couldn't have dealt with this...
In an effort to continue to support The Ghost Inside and the injuries sustained during the accident, Epitaph Records have announced that all the profits from the sales of any of their albums will be donated directly to the band indefinitely.

We wish them a speedy recovery and return to health.
Here at Epitaph we want to help in a more profound way than just releasing really cool albums. That's why we wanted to participate in #GivingTuesday this year. We realize that there are many in this world who are less fortunate. The mission of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is to provide impartial medical relief to the victims of war, disease, and natural or man-made disaster, without regard to race, religion, or political affiliation.

The Ghost Inside have posted a new statement detailing their conditions after their horrific crash just a mere 10 days ago. All of us here at AP.net send our thoughts and prayers to everyone involved in the crash, their family and friends.
Hi friends. I hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend. Through the grace of our incredible host hotels and the community here in El Paso we were able to enjoy a great meal and have a couple hours of much needed relief away from the hospital. Our families that are here aren't used to being 'on the road' and although the circumstances couldn't be less ideal, this holiday will always be a special one for us, a genuine day of giving thanks for the gift of...
The Ghost Inside's management have posted an update to their Facebook about the serious bus crash we reported earlier today. They have confirmed that The Ghost Inside's hired bus driver, as well as the occupant (or occupants) of the semi-truck have passed away. All band members and other crew members are alive and currently being treated for their injuries. They have also announced that the remaining dates of their current Locals Only Tour have been cancelled. Our thoughts go out to the families and those who have lost loved ones, as well as to the band through this trying time.

There have been unconfirmed reports that two of the occupants of the semi-truck have passed away. We will continue to post information as we discover it. Our thoughts and well-wishes are with the band and everyone involved in this accident.
During the fall semester I’m pretty busy. But next year there’s going to be a new solo album. I put out a new solo album about every six years, so next year I’m due for one. And then I’m going to develop a new book, but I can’t talk about it yet. And finally, Bad Religion has a new album to write. So we’ve got a lot of work to do.

A petition has been started to remove Deafheaven from future Pitchfork Music Festivals after multiplehomophobic tweets surfaced from guitarist Kerry McCoy a few years back. First I'm hearing about this; pretty damn disappointing.

"People have these expectations and beliefs that they pin on us," Lyxzén says. "There are some fans who have lived with The Shape of Punk to Come for their entire lives and have decided that's all we are. But now it's time for us to decide what we want our legacy to be. And this album is a good start-over, so to speak."

This tour has been great. Every show was fun. We had a blast with every crowd, every night. Until last night. One of the reasons that we stopped doing this band for a year was because we didn’t like the vibe at the shows. There are some people that genuinely connect with the music in one way or another, and then there are dick heads that seem to get off on ruining everyone’s night. I remember a friend of mine told me that I didn’t need to break our band up. I just needed to remember that at the end of the day, I don’t owe anyone a single thing. We went into this tour...
