    The Dillinger Escape Plan were in a bus crash in Poland over the weekend:

    A police spokeswoman in Poland says 13 people have been injured after a truck rammed into the bus carrying American band The Dillinger Escape Plan to a concert in Krakow.

    Aneta Wlazlowska from the police in Radomsko said Sunday that band members were not seriously hurt but were taken for tests at the local hospital. A pregnant woman traveling with the band was not hurt.

    The band has canceled the rest of their European tour dates:

    All the gear is destroyed and there are injuries—we are unable to continue this tour right now. The band and crew would like to thank the fans and press around the world for their concern and the Polish police and medical staff for their handling of the situation. We hope to get back to Europe soon.

    D'oh! Prestigious

    I was supposed to go to their show in Kraków that day, it really sucks they got into something like this and probably lost a lot of gear, which is still fine contrasted with the fact that nobody's really hurt that much (besides the truck driver).
