If you are anticipating a new Atheist record, think again. Drummer Steve Flynn of the recently reunited tech metal outfit was fucked up pretty bad in a car accident near his home in Atlanta.
According to reports, the crash occurred when another vehicle pulled out in front of Flynn, who was estimated to be driving at 50 mph at the time of the crash. The Atheist drummer was transported to the hospital by ambulance, where he was treated for injuries to his wrist, neck, and jaw.
Don't worry, he's not going to die, but this could delay a new Atheist album from being released. No word on how serious Flynn's injuries are, but he will require some physical therapy although the press release did mention that he is 'improving swiftly at his home in Atlanta.'
Our thoughts go out to Steve and his family. We hope he recovers 100%, so we can have a little more Atheist in our lives.
