Steve Badiola, vocalist of Filipino post-hardcore band Typecast, has been hospitalised following a hit-and-run accident last week.
On Saturday (November 27), Typecast took to Facebook to post about the unfortunate incident, telling fans that the band need “your help, prayers, and support.”
Badiola will need an operation for a “badly injured” and fractured knee with an open wound. He also sustained a big laceration on the right side of his skull and face, Bandwagon reported.
