The Acacia Strain have been forced to quit their tour with fellow rockers Veil Of Maya after a serious traffic accident.

The band's tour van overturned on a highway on Tuesday (27Nov12), prompting members of the group and their crew to seek medical treatment for minor injuries.

The rockers took to their official page to post a photograph of their silver van upside down and heavily damaged, with belongings scattered around the road.

A statement reads, "It comes with heavy hearts and sadness to announce that The Acacia Strain will be leaving their co-headlining tour with Veil Of Maya due to a serious van accident. Members of the band and crew are being treated for minor injuries, nothing serious."

Frontman Vincent Bennet commented, "Cancelling tour dates is something we hate doing but we will make it up to all of you. We are all very grateful to be alive and will see you in the New Year."
