Three bandmembers are thought to be injured as their US tour takes a turn for the worse...

ASH have been involved in a bus crash in the US.

The band are playing dates on Moby‘s Area:2 festival. They wre en-route to Detoit when the crash happened (August 16). According to initial reports, none of the band’s injuries are life threatening.

Writing on the fan website,, bassist Mark Hamilton said: “We’ve been though a nightmare 24 hours travelling to make to Detroit. Rick has broken ribs, Chaz (Charlotte) isn’t as bad as was thought, but I’m claiming a double whipper. Show must go on.”

A spokesperson for the band told NME.COM that although it was too soon to be certain, he was confident their appearance at this weekend’s Carling Weekend festivals in Reading and Leeds should still go ahead.

Ash release a new single ‘Envy’, on August 26.
