Massachusetts metallers Within the Ruins flipped their van and trailer off an interstate in Pennsylvania on Sunday, February 15.
Thank God that no one was hurt... but their van, trailer and gear were completely destroyed. That's painful for a touring band, albeit in a different way.
The band had set sail from their hometown in Massachusetts on their way to California to begin a month-long tour with Suicide Silence and Fit for an Autopsy.
"We rolled about three times from what I can remember and landed on the median. Our van and trailer are totaled," said guitarist Joe Cocchi.
Despite the near death experience and loss of gear, the band will push on and make the third show scheduled at El Corazon on Friday, February 20 in Seattle.
What fucking troopers!
Cocchi continues, "All I can say is that we're happy to be alive. I don't know how, but none of us were injured. We're on the road touring because this is all we know and love, and we want to continue. Help us get back on our feet by picking up a shirt. Thank you all for the continued support."
The band has set up a GoFundMe page to make up some of gear lost in the wreckage. Visit gofundme.com/withintheruins to support Within the Ruins if you can.
