Foxygen’s Sam France Facing Six Weeks of Physical Therapy For Leg Fractures

The serious onstage injuries of Foxygen frontman Sam France at a Minneapolis show last month have forced the band to cancel their FYF Fest appearance as France undergoes treatment for several leg fractures. Here’s a full statement on the matter, direct from the source:

“Foxygen will be unable to perform at next week’s FYF Festival in Los Angeles. The cancellation is directly related to injuries sustained by Sam France during a Minnesota performance in late July. Sam sustained complete fractures of the tibia and fibula. The breaks were severe enough to require surgery, involving an intramedullar nailing of the tibia and a metal rod placed in his leg. Sam is currently unable to walk unassisted, and is undergoing six weeks of physical therapy. Being from the LA area, it’s a true heartbreaker for the band to be unable to appear at FYF. Thank you so much to our fans for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you soon!”

If it’s any consolation, Foxygen’s co-founder, Jonathan Rado, will release his debut solo record through Woodsist on September 3rd. Check out its first couple singles below…
