KILLER DWARFS Forced To Cancel Toronto Concert Due To Injuries Sustained In Indiana Road Crash

Canadian rockers KILLER DWARFS have been forced to postpone their previously announced June 7 appearance at the Hard Rock Café in Toronto due to the injuries sustained by the band in a serious crash following their performance at the Rocklahoma festival last weekend.

Says the group in a statement: "The band is very loyal to their fans and feel they are unable at this time to give the fans the performance they deserve.

"We will be re-scheduling the show for a later date [to be announced] and will honor any tickets purchased for this event.

"If you require a refund please contact [email protected] and you will be refunded.

"It saddens us to do this but under the circumstances we hope you #DwarfNAtion will understand under the circumstances.

"There are no other cancelations anticipated at this time.

"Thank you all for all the well wishes and prayers. DwarfNation are the best fans in the world!"

The accident took place just before 2:00 Monday afternoon (May 26) near a construction zone along interstate 70 in Indiana when the band's pickup truck — driven by KILLER DWARFS bassist Johnny Fenton — pulling a box trailer failed to slow or stop and hit a vehicle and another pickup truck. The second truck then hit a SUV. Vocalist Russ Graham was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for head injuries while Fenton, drummer Darrell Millar and guitarist Gerry Finn suffered only minor cuts and bruises.

A video report on the incident from WTHI TV can be seen below.

KILLER DWARFS was formed in Toronto in 1981 and continues to rock, showing no signs of slowing down. From its first single, the anthem "Keep The Spirit Alive", to its 2013 album "STaRT @ oNe", the band's timeline includes extensive MTV airplay, recording for major labels, racking up a few Juno nominations and playing some of the largest venues throughout the world.
