Metal band Within The Ruins flipped their tour van. They posted a press release to their official Facebook page asking for help. The band started a GoFundMe page to help replace damaged equipment. Nobody was hurt in the accident.

"Massachusetts Metal act WITHIN THE RUINS flipped their van and trailer off an interstate in Pennsylvania yesterday afternoon," The band's official Facebook page read. "While no one was hurt, their van, trailer and gear were completely destroyed.

'We rolled about three times from what I can remember and landed on the median. Our van and trailer are totaled.' says guitarist Joe Cocchi.

The band had set sail from their hometown in MA on their way to California to begin a month-long tour with SUICIDE SILENCE alongside label-mates FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY. 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 20th in Seattle. 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.'"
