Hardcore outfit Year of the Knife was involved in a serious car accident, which left vocalist Madi Watkins in critical condition, while other members of the band have sustained broken bones and other injuries, but are fortunately in stable condition.
The band shared the news on Twitter last night, stating that they were all alive but still in Salt Lake City, where they had performed their latest gig.
The band stated:
“We got in a REALLY bad accident. Everyone’s alive. We’re stuck in SLC”
Guitarist Brandon Watkins shared this:
We’re all alive but things aren’t good. Please wish Madi well. She needs everything everyone’s got right now. Also if you usually talk to Madi feel free to reach out to me instead I’ll talk to you and give you updates. Thanks.
According to an update shared by Brandon’s father on his social media, Madi is in critical condition with major trauma, and the injuries sustained by the other band members include broken legs and other trauma.

Family and friends, Our son (Brandon), our daughter in law (Madi) and their two “Year of the Knife” band mates, Andy and Aaron, were touring out west and were involved in a terrible accident after a show in Salt Lake City,UT. It’s been a heart wrenching time for all families involved. Brandon was concussed, but is miraculously ok. Aaron and Andy both sustained broken legs and other trauma…but are stable now and recovering. Madi is in critical condition with major trauma. Please keep her in your prayers. No tickets were available to fly out today or tomorrow. So, we will be going out to Salt Lake on Saturday to help with whatever comes next.
We wish them a speedy recovery.
