Brighten was recently involved in a van accident.
Message From The Bandwhoa! holy moly... we are safe, but its quite a story. we have had over night drives for the past 3 nights and have been sleeping 7 people in a van at rest stops because we have no time to get hotels. so all in all, no sleep for brighten or a rocket to the moon (he is riding with us on tour!). this morning i, jimmy, woke up at about 7am after sleeping
for a few hours and decided to drive. at about 8am i woke up after slipping
away for a split second causing us to veer into a grassy ditch on the highway.

Jimmy, drummer of Brighten, will be heading to Africa this summer to teach soccer to children. A donation link to help pay for expenses can be found on the band's myspace.
MessageI'm going to Nairobi, Kenya to teach soccer camps and hang out with children in some of the worst slums in the world. I've been wanting to do this for so long and God finally opened the door for me to go. I will be leaving July 22nd and be back around August 12th. My trip will cost $3,000 for airfare and day to day cost while being there (2/3 airfare). I really need your help! It will be a life-changing experience and I believe that this is the perfect way to show people Jesus Christís love first hand. Thank you...

For all of you who had planned on attending tomorrow's show at the Trocadero in Philadelphia, PA with Brighten, The Morning Light, and The Maine, the show has unfortunately been canceled. Instead of wasting a day, the bands are still going to be showing up at the venue and want all the kids to meet them there. They will be meeting everyone at the venue at 6 PM and then be moving to an yet to be determined location nearby where they will be playing acoustic, selling merch, and grilling hot dogs for everyone who comes to hang out.

Message From The BandRight now we are looking for a place to settle in and call home. We have been through some rough times over the past year or so. For the record, Carbon Copy was very good to us. JT and Mark have become some close friends of ours.

So untill we decide on where we are going to stay, we are just going to be touring a lot and meeting new people and just doing what we do. We are selling a 9 song record with us. So come get it!

We (Brighten) are really excited to be going out with Hawthorne Heights, From First To Last, Secondhand Serenade, and Powerspace! We are stoked to do this tour because we get to see all of...
