The Callous Daoboys have announced via social media that they are canceling their set in support of TesseracT in Warsaw after guitarist Maddie Caffrey suffered a head injury.
The accident occurred during the band’s set at the Columbia Theater in Berlin, Germany when bassist/vocalist Jackie Buckalew’s headstock struck her forehead. Maddie has since shared images of before and after the show, stating, “shout out German healthcare for gluing my forehead back together for the low low price of 50€…. Long story short I smacked my head into Jackie’s headstock during our set tonight and bled a lot but I’m fine lolz.”
A few hours later, The Callous Daoboys stated in an infographic that they'd made the decision to cancel their Warsaw performance.

The outpouring of support, concern, and understanding from The Callous Daoboys’s fanbase on hearing of both the injury and cancellation is a positive reminder of the heavy music scene’s community. We wish Maddie all the best, and a quick recovery.
The Callous Daoboys are currently on tour supporting TesseracT and Unprocessed throughout Europe and the UK.
