December 6, 2009
The Babylon Bombs have announced that Georg Harnsten Egg of the band Dynazty will take care of the drumming while Swaint is recovering from his accident.
In late November drummer Swaint broke his back at a gig the band were performing in support of their new album ‘Babylon’s Burning’. Swait is now at home recuperating, stating “6 weeks off now and rehab training then I’m back behind the kit and out on the road with the boys hopefully.” At the time of the accident the band issued the following statement:
“We just wanted to make an official statement and apology for the great fans in Lichtenfels. The evening started out great with awesome bands like Baby Jane, Starrats and The Fright.
We hit the stage a little late because of backline troubles but we hit the stage hard and the audience we’re great. But only after three songs Swaint fell off the drumriser and stage landing 2 meters below on concrete floor resulting in breaking his back.
We’re so sorry for this, it’s noones fault. This things just happens sometimes. We cancelled the show right away. Swaint was in great pain and almost died right on the spot there.The ambulance came quickly and brought him to the hospital for surgery.
The band have been by his side at all times. But we hade to leave for home and Swaint is still on the hospital awaiting further surgery.
For now the future is unclear, but the doctors says that he will be able to play drums when he been rehabilitated. We don’t know if thats a month or a year. He’s a fighter so hopefully he will be back behind the drums soon!”
