Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill is feeling "a little banged up" after a tour bus accident in Boston this weekend.
A post on the band's Facebook page says they were en route to their hotel after Saturday night's show when a pedestrian jumped in front of the bus. The driver stopped short, and Followill was left with broken ribs.
He took to Twitter Sunday morning to thank everyone for all the "get well soons," and says he'll be "back better than ever."

Saw a tweet that said I had died. Not quite, but it feels close. Who knew that you use your ribs for EVERYTHING. pic.twitter.com/qVXwzySqNb— nathan followill (@doctorfollowill) August 11, 2014

Nathan's brother and Kings' bassist Jared Followill also tweeted about the accident, which he called "so sad." He said the band's current trek had been their "most fun" outing in a while, and promised to be back on the road ASAP.
So sad this a.m.. Bus accident last night. Nathan has broken ribs. This was the most fun tour in a while. We'll be back ASAP. #GetWellNate— Jared Followill (@youngfollowill) August 10, 2014
Followill's injuries forced the band to postpone Sunday night's tour stop in Saratoga Springs, New York, and it remains unclear if the accident will affect any more of the group's upcoming gigs. They're scheduled to perform on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Tuesday, followed by a concert in Wantagh, New York on Wednesday.
