The Word Alive frontman Telle Smith suffered a compound fracture during the band’s recent show in Los Angeles. However, Smith still plans on playing the rest of the tour while sitting. He has six months recovery time ahead of him. Here’s what he had to say via Instagram.

I’m going to try to perform while sitting down, so if you’re coming out to the remaining dates please go twice as hard for me. Unfortunately I don’t have health insurance as well, so if you want to help just grab something from my clothing line ( my jewelry line ( or click the link in my bio! Thank you to all my family and friends who have reached out or who were there for me last night. I’m thankful it wasn’t worse! I’ll be back and stronger than ever in 2018.
