There were nine people injured in total when their tour bus slid down 30 feet off of a viaduct while they were in Bath, England. They were traveling between shows during a rainy weather. Baizley broke his left arm and left leg, while Blickle and Maggioni each suffered from fractured vertebrae.

Because of the accident, Baroness canceled the six remaining gigs on their 2012 tour schedule. Canceled shows included a performance at FYF Fest and Hopscotch Music Festival on September 6 at Raleigh, North Carolina.
