Death Cab for Cutie Frontman Suffers Running Mishap


How about this for a major OUCH?

Over the weekend, Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard broke his wrist while participating in a 50K. If you’re wondering just how the singer managed to break his wrist while running, it seems to have been a misfortune event.

Gibbard, who had become known for being a runner, posted a photo of himself with a sad face and a cast around his wrist. In the caption that accompanies the photo on the social media site, he explains how around mile marker 20 of the course, he slid on a super slick bridge and went down resulting in a broken wrist.

But all is not lost. In the post he remains optimistic when he says that it will heal and he will be back as soon as it does.

Check out his post below.

Considering that it is a serious injury, there has been no word on whether this will affect the band’s touring schedule. As of now, it appears their upcoming tour will still begin on April 10 in Arizona, but we’re sure Gibbard and the rest of the band will keep the fans updated in the event that his injury gets in the way of touring.

Those upcoming 2015 tour dates can be seen here.

Kintsugi, the band’s upcoming new album, will be released on March 31 through Atlantic Records.
