Hatebreed bassist breaks wrist, elbow in accident

Hatebreed bassist Chris Beattie broke his left wrist and right elbow earlier this week and will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair the damaage. As such, he will miss the band's tour with Shadows Fall, The Acacia Strain, and Battlecross. Beattie had the following to say:
"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."
