Sylosis frontman and guitarist Josh Middleton has posted an second update on the band’s situation, and this one featured a graphic photo of their totaled RV.
The accident forced the band — whose members were hospitalized and sustained numerous injuries — to drop of their tour with Trivium, DevilDriver and After The Burial tour.
Josh starts out by thanking “everyone for their support these past few days. It’s been overwhelming. We’re really feeling it pretty hard today and are looking like a bunch of slow, old men when we walk.”
I have been in a couple of car accidents. That shit’s no joke. The aches sometimes don’t start for days.
“Aside from the physical issues that prevent us from continuing on with the tour it has also put us in thousands of pounds worth of debt due to losing the deposit (and now paying extra) on the RV, damaged trailer, booking new flights home, equipment damage and we’re now incurring all kinds of transport/accommodation costs as we make our journey home.”
“The last thing we want is for people to think we’re now cashing in on the accident and taking advantage of people’s sympathy, but we need some help right now so we’ve just released two exclusive T-shirts where all the profits will go towards clearing our debts. Both of the shirts are available as a pre-order.”
Go here to support the band.
“We like the idea of you guys helping us and actually getting something for your money but we will also accept PayPal donations of any kind to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I can’t stress enough that we do not intend to exploit the situation. Thanks to all of you guys and the entire metal community right now for showing us so much support these past few days.”
