(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) –The Eames Era, about to embark on a tour of the Midwest and Northeast to
support the October 18 release of their debut album, Double Dutch, canceled its upcoming tour following a car accident with a National Guard military truck on October 16 in Baton Rouge, LA. The accident occurred as they were driving from a photo shoot to a show.
"It was definitely an experience we'll
never forget," said lead singer Ashlin Phillips, who has several
stitches in her face as a result of the trauma. "In hindsight, it could
have been much worse, and I just feel lucky that we escaped the
accident with relatively minor injuries."
All five band members received varying degrees of injury. The worst was guitarist Ted Joyner's broken arm, which was operated on, on October 17. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
