The guitarist and frontman revealed the injury in a post on Instagram on Thursday (24Nov16), in which he was pictured laid up in bed with his leg in plaster.

He captioned the image: "Broke my f**king leg starting my motorcycle goddamnit (sic)."

Brent was scheduled to hit the road with Alice in Chains singer William DuVall and Ben Weinman of Dillinger Escape Plan in the supergroup Giraffe Tongue Orchestra at the end of the month (Nov16) for a U.S. tour, but hinted it will now not go ahead.

"sorry (sic) to all the shows I was about to play with gto (Giraffe Tongue Orchestra)...," he added in his Instagram message.

The band were scheduled to play eight U.S. gigs before the end of the year (16), finishing their trek in Detroit, Michigan on 10 December (16). No official announcement on the status of the concerts had been made at press time.
