Unfortunately, Betraying The Martyrs have been forced to cancel their current tour of North America after an incident with their vehicle. This, in turn, ruined the band’s gear and possessions. Luckily, no one in the vehicle sustained any serious injuries.
A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help the band bounce back. You can help them by CLICKING HERE.
The band’s vocalist Aaron Matts had the following to say of this, “We’re all shaken by what has happened this morning. We’re well but very heartbroken that all we have worked hard to accumulate over the years, both in musical equipment, and personal belongings has been lost in a matter of minutes. I’m grateful that we have our health, each other, and were able to walk away with the clothes on our backs. We are extremely sorry to have missed another opportunity to play for those that were looking forward to see us. We’ll bounce back and we’ll see you soon. Thank you.”
Guitarist Baptiste Vigier also had the following to say, “This is the most tragic event that has ever happened in our band’s career, and in my entire life. Earlier this morning, I was awakened by our driver screaming and urging us all to get out of the vehicle. Although I’m incredibly thankful to still be alive and tell this story, I lost all my gear and personal belongings. We feel incredibly powerless and in shock.”
