DASHBOARD Confessional lead singer Chris Carrabba revealed he has a long road to recovery after sustaining “severe” injuries in a motorcycle crash.

The frontman is “determined” to heal up fully but said it’s going to be a “difficult” journey.

On Thursday, Dashboard Confessional social media accounts shared a photo of Chris, 45, laying in a hospital bed with a face mask on.

The singer and guitarist updated fans on why they hadn’t heard from him in a bit in a note attached to the hospital photo, sharing he was in a motorcycle accident on Saturday.

Chris wrote: “My injuries were severe but not life threatening. I owe the amazing doctors, nurses and medical team treating me my endless gratitude.

“I am determined to make a full recovery, but I have surgeries and months of rehab to come."

Knowing he has a long way to go before he’s feeling like himself, he thank everyone for their love and encouragement during this hard time.

The 45-year-old artist continued: “To all reading this I would like to say thank you for standing by me through my recovery.

“This will be difficult physically, emotionally and financially and I'm grateful to have your support as I go through it.”

This was the band’s first Instagram post since last week’s “the show must be paused” post in support of Black Lives Matter, but Chris assured fans he’s focused on the movement, as well as his recovery, even if they don’t see it on social media.

Chris told his followers: ”I have not lost sight of the social issues at hand and even in the condition I'm in I find it important to state that I stand with Black Lives Matter.

"In the near future it is likely I will no be able to follow the news as much as I normally would. If you don't hear from me on critical social issues I trust that you will know where I stand.”

Many of Chris’ fellow musicians are sending him love and support after finding out about his accident.

Kacey Musgraves said, “Get well soon Chris,” while singer-songwriter Ruston Kelly commented, “Damn man, thinking of you and praying for you.”

American Idol alum Chris Daughtry wrote: “Damn brother! I’m so sorry to hear this! Sending you love, positive energy and well wishes man.”

Dashboard Confessional released their seventh studio album, Crooked Shadows, in 2018.
