Baroness have cancelled the remainder of their 2012 tour dates and issued an update on the health of their members. Their tour bus crash outside of Bath, England, as they were en route to Southampton for their next show of their UK tour earlier this month.

A majority of the group suffered serious injuries in the crash as the band's vehicle plummeted 30 feet over a viaduct, with firefighters on the scene eventually having to rescue several of the passengers inside.

Singer John Baizley broke his left arm and left leg in the incident, while drummer Allen Blickle and bassist Matt Maggioni each had fractured vertebrae resulting from the impact of the crash.

Pete Adams remained the one member who escaped relatively unscathed and was treated and released and allowed to return home ahead of the rest of the band.

Just last week, the band tweeted a photo from the hospital expressing their thanks for all the support they've received from fans.

The statement on their Facebook page reads:

"John Baizley has been released from hospital. Allen and Matt have arrived back in the United States. All remaining 2012 tour dates are canceled.

"Thank you for all of the continued support."
