The Independents have posted an update on their status since the bus crash in the UK which left both the Independents and tour partners, The Dangerfields with minor injuries. The band had this to say:

Our Driver Ian was not as lucky as us. He suffered some major injuries. Last report he is still in the hospital but recovering slowly but surely. Willy B will be in a cast for another 5 weeks while we continue to write the new record and set up recording dates for "Eternal Bond" Once these are set you will be the first to know.

We are booking the next North American tour for March - May with our Irish pals the Dangerfields! Come on! Did you think a bus crash at 80mph on black ice with broken arms and toes and busted heads and knees were going to slow us down that much? We are The Independents! We are going to play the music we want, when, where, and how we want.
