The Absence Drummer Injured In Car Crash

On April 10, Justin Reynolds of Sarasota, Florida thrash metal band The Absence was involved in serious car crash that left the drummer with injuries to his back and neck. While receiving treatment and recovering, fellow Floridian Matt Solka will temporarily replace Reynolds. While it is unclear why the other members of The Absence waited weeks to announce the accident, Reynolds’ bandmates wrote on their myspace blog: “We wish our friend best of luck and a speedy recovery and hope he's back doing what he does best soon.”
