The three members of Baroness still recuperating in the U.K from a tour bus crash earlier this month have all been released from the hospital, according to a post at the band's Facebook page. Drummer Allen Blickle and bassist Matt Maggioni are already back in the U.S., with guitarist/singer John Baizley allowed to leave the hospital shortly after his bandmates and on his way home as well. Guitarist Pete Adams, who was the least injured of the quartet, came home not long after the accident.

Baizley broke his left arm and left leg, while Blickle and Maggioni each suffered fractured vertebrae.

The August 15th accident occurred near the city of Bath, when heavy rain caused the bus to plummet 30 feet off the road. Five members of the band's road crew were also hurt, although their current conditions are not known.

All previously scheduled Baroness tour dates for the rest of 2012 have been canceled and all promotional plans for the Georgia group's new album, Yellow & Green, have been put on hold.

Yellow & Green was released last month. A single called "Take My Bones Away" is just starting to make its way up the Active Rock radio chart.
