Year of the Knife Share Another Health Update

Yesterday, Year Of The Knife released an update about the recovery of vocalist Madi Watkins.

Since the band’s tragic van accident last month, Madi has had surgeries on her jaw and facial fractures, as well as her femur and ankle, and now the next hurdle will be mental recovery from the traumatic injury.

The band and Madi’s family share:

“Our Madi has a very long journey to recovery ahead of her. She’s already had surgeries to fix her broken jaw, facial fractures, femur and ankle. The most troubling and challenging of her injuries is the trauma to her brain. It is impossible to say how long it will take for Madi to fully return to us. Healing of the human brain after severe trauma remains a mystery, and requires a patience from loved ones that is virtually impossible to achieve.

“Me, mom and Michelle will remain out in Utah for the foreseeable future to see Madi through this long journey. The funds raised continue to help the family with the costs involved. We also know that insurance deductibles and costs not paid for by insurance will be enormous. Every dollar donated makes a huge difference and we are so grateful. Much love and thanks to you all!”

To support Madi, folk across metal and hardcore are stepping up to provide support. A local Delaware show is raising money next week:

A July 17 show in Philadelphia will also contribute to Madi’s recovery:
