Anthrax‘s tour with Black Label Society kicked off Tuesday in Idaho, but one member of the “Madhouse” metallers had a particularly tough time getting there.

In an Instagram post, bassist Frank Bello shares that his flight into Boise ahead of the show landed in a literal ditch.

“Ever have one of those flights to start a tour where on landing you feel a ‘thud,’ then you hear the brakes screech a bit, and when you finally stop moving the plane is a bit tilted down to the right side in the front?” Bello writes. “Well after keeping us in the plane for 3 hours after landing – we found out we were in a ditch.”

Understandably, Bello feels the incident was “not the best way to start a tour,” but nonetheless is looking forward to “good times ahead.”

Those good times ahead include the rest of Anthrax’s tour with Black Label, which runs into mid-February. The two bands previously toured together last summer.
