SHADOWS FALL’S Matt Bachand To Sub For HATEBREED Bassist On Upcoming Tour

Thursday, 26th September 2013

HATEBREED bassist Chris Beattie was injured earlier this week in an accident and will need to undergo immediate surgery. Beattie will sit out the band’s The Divinity Of Purpose Fall Tour and Matt Bachand from label mates, SHADOWS FALL, will fill in for Beattie.

HATEBREED is currently on a headlining tour with direct support from, SHADOWS FALL along with special guests, The ACACIA STRAIN and BATTLECROSS (tour dates below).

Beattie explains, “On Monday a large branch fell off a tree I was cutting and knocked the ladder I was on out from under me. I fell 8 feet off the ladder onto the sidewalk and luckily was able to throw the chainsaw away from me on the way down. I broke my left wrist and right elbow. I will be going “under the knife” this Friday to correct the breaks and start the healing process. Jamey, Wayne, Matt, Frank and our manager Steve have all been very supportive and I look forward to getting back out on the stage as soon as I can. Please go out and support HATEBREED as they leave for a short US tour today. Thanks to Matt from Shadows Fall for filling in for me. See you soon.”
