Ignominious Incarceration Drummer Sam Bailey Has "Brutal" Skateboarding Accident

Earache Records has issued the following statement about Ignominious Incarceration drummer Sam Bailey suffering a skateboarding injury:

"British metallers Ignominious Incarceration like to pulverise their fans with their breed of brutal yet melodic death metal, but on their recent tour, drummer Sam Bailey found himself on the receiving end of some brutality.

"The young drummer was skateboarding when he had an epic bail, cracking his head open in the process, before being taken to hospital to have it stitched up.

"If you're not too squeamish, check out a video update from the band below, which includes footage of the drummer's injury and subsequent hospital trip."

Sam Bailey recalls what happened:

"I was super, super wasted. I'd been drinking too much vodka, went down a 10-foot ramp, fell down and blacked out. I woke up with a bleeding head and was rushed to hospital. That's pretty much all I remember!"

Ignominious Incarceration's upcoming live shows are as follows:

7/23 - Nottingham, UK - Rock City
7/24 - Birmingham, UK - Eddie's
