Massachusetts’ Metal Band Within The Ruins, had a brush with death yesterday evening. Luckily everyone is ok, but their means of transportation was completely destroyed – along with all the gear they need to continue their tour with Suicide Silence. In under 24 hours, though they’ve managed to raise almost 8k on GoFundme.
You can also purchase a CD or buy tickets here.
They had just returned from Europe before starting the tour, and had less than a day to spend with their families. Guitarist Joe Cocchi stated,
“We return home from a 27-day Euro tour, spend one day with our families, and then this happens during a snow storm in Pennsylvania as we are making the trek out to Cali.”
The band has already announced that they will be missing the next two dates of their month long tour with Suicide Silence and Fit For an Autopsy, which has made them a band to watch in 2015. They even have a spot at the SxSW Festival this year.
One things for sure, it’s always great to see the fans and communities come together to help a band in need. Though they’re already very close to the GoFundme goal of raising $10,000 for the gear lost in the accident, they can always use more help. Donate here to help them reach their goal! Having shot this band back in 2013 at a local venue in California, I’m ecstatic to hear that they are alive and well after such a turn of events.
