Kings of Leon are canceling all their shows up until August 28 following a bus accident that sent drummer Nathan Followill to the hospital with broken ribs, according to their Facebook page.

The band was on their tour bus following their Saturday night show in Boston when a pedestrian jumped in front of the bus, causing the driver to brake suddenly. Followill is still in the hospital and must remain in recovery for the rest of the month on doctor’s orders, but fans got to see how the recovery was going when Kings of Leon posted a video of Followill to their YouTube account Monday.

In the video, Followill apologized for having to skip out on upcoming shows but said “it’s all for the better.” He thanked fans for “all the well wishes.”

Kings of Leon will still perform on Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show as planned with The Roots drummer Questlove filling in for Followill. Below is the list of canceled tour dates:

8/13: Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre, Wantagh, N.Y.
8/15: Jiffy Lube Live, Bristow, Va.
8/16: Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, Bethel, N.Y.
