Allen was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. In an interview a week before the accident Allen credited Zablidowsky and the band’s new drummer, Jordan Cannata, with inspiring him and the guitarist Mike Orlando.

“They’re just really good players and great guys,” Allen said of the duo. “I’ve never been happier about the vibe onstage and offstage. To listen to Dave and Jordan on these songs has revitalized the band.”
