The news of Bockrath’s serious leg injury was revealed by Cage the Elephant lead vocalist/guitarist Matthew Shultz.

“Nick sustained a pretty gnarly knee injury that will need medical attention,” Shultz wrote on Twitter. “On the bright side his injury is not beyond disrepair and in fact, God willing, we will be back and ready for the Night Running Tour.”

A statement from the band noted Bockrath tried to play through two shows but now requires immediate surgery and is getting the medical attention he needs.
