Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker is recovering from a hip injury, but he’s not going to let that stop the music. Parker took to Instagram to reveal that he fractured his hip, sharing pictures and video of his injury and recovery with fans.

“Tried to run a half marathon on what turned out to be an existing stress fracture,” the frontman writes. “Whoops. Made it to within 1km of the finish line. That’s life I guess.”

As for the band’s upcoming concerts, he says, “All shows in Mexico and South America going ahead as planned I’m not quitting on you guys.”

And he won’t have a lot of time to recover, considering Tame Impala’s next show is happening Friday in Mexico City, with the South American dates kicking off March 18 in Buenos Aires. A complete list of tour dates can be found at
