Borknagar has been working on a new album, which is now being delayed due to band member Vintersorg (Andreas Hedlund) being injured in an accident. Borknagar comments:
"This have been a rough week. Seven days ago Mr. V was seriously injured in an falling accident. This resulted in multiple fractures to the skull, brain hemorrhage and momentary dysfunctional hearing on one ear. We have intentionally kept this off the radar, till he felt fit enough to update the public himself. So his post on Facebook today should be regarded as an heartwarming and uplifting statement of his recovery.
"We would like to wish our colleague and dear friend all the best, the best possible treatment and a speedy recovery to full health. Also all the best to his closest family, his wife and kids in this difficult situation. In the current situation Mr. V's process of recovery and regaining health is the most important thing.
"The release of our new album might be delayed accordingly, as there is absolutely no option to leave our bro behind or in any way compromise on his recovery." More...
