As some of you may now, technical death metallers Fallujah were recently involved in a car accident that destroyed a whole lot of their gear, along with their van and trailer. They're okay though, thankfully. Here's what they had to say about the accident:
“So for those of you who have not yet seen the facebook posts, last night on I-80 in Wyoming we got caught in a storm and hit a patch of black ice. Even though the van was only traveling at 30 miles an hour it didn’t stop us from spinning out. Everyone is okay luckily but our van and trailer are completely destroyed. This will ultimately force us to drop the remaining dates with Hate Eternal and Goatwhore.Right now our current issue is getting whats left back home, somehow salvaging some money from the wrecked van and trailer whether for parts or metal, and then finally getting on track with a new van/trailer. Though we are very hesitant to ask for any kind of hand out or sympathy, we are going to be in the hole majorly after this so if you are willing to pick up some merch or donate some money it would be much appreciated.”(via theprp.com)
Since this announcement, though, they've set up a Kickstarter fundraiser, where basically anyone can chip in and donate some cash until their goal is reached. Fallujah have set out to raise $2500 over the next two months, money which will be spent on a new tour van. They're also offering some pretty cool rewards including signed posters and CDs, so if you enjoy their awesome spacey, science-y tech death, head on over to their Kickstarter page and help them get back on the road. Ghoul have also had a van fundraising which turned out great, ending up with more than $1000 more than they had anticipated. I assume they used the extra cash to spray paint zombies on their new van.
The point is, this is definitely achievable, so do a good deed and help some bros in need.
