While driving across Pennsylvania yesterday on their way to start a tour with Suicide Silence and Fit For An Autopsy, Within The Ruins were involved in a serious van accident that completely destroyed their van and trailer. Luckily, all passengers survived with no serious injuries. Guitarist Joe Cocchi had this to say about the incident:
“We rolled about three times from what I can remember and landed on the median. Our van and trailer are totaled. 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 intend on continuing on with the tour, with their first scheduled date slated to be Friday, Feb. 20 in Seattle. If you’d like to help the band get back on their feet, visit their GoFundMe page.
