Pierce The Veil guitarist badly hurt in bike crash

Pierce The Veil guitarist Tony Perry sustained serious injuries in a mountain bike accident this past weekend, requiring immediate surgery. Pierce The Veil vocalist Vic Fuentes has issued the following statement:
"I'm sad to say that I have some bad news for you. Our guitar player Tony Perry was recently hospitalized for an incident while riding his mountain bike last weekend. He sustained 3 broken ribs, a torn shoulder, collapsed lung and a broken sternum, for which he needed immediate surgery to repair. Fortunately, his surgery went very well, and he is expected to make a full recovery. He was released from the hospital yesterday, but due to doctors orders, he will not be joining us for the beginning of Warped Tour until he is healthy enough to play. We will still be carrying on with the tour as planned, and we hope to see Tony Perry back on stage with us very soon. Your fan support is greatly appreciated, so be sure to send Tony some love while he's healing up! Thanks and we'll see you all on Warped!"
