Touring bands aren't special people. This pretty much applies to anyone in a car lol

I'd say touring bands are at much more of a risk than most, especially smaller bands. The vans they are in are usually whatever they can afford and they are carrying a hell of a lot of extra weight, either in the back or the trailer. Much more potential for accidents than most vehicles. I was in a (thankfully) relatively minor accident whilst touring in a loaded up van - those things do not want to stop for anything!!

Regardless, I hope all stay safe!

Really unfortunate. Hope there are no long term effects on any of these guys. Been listening to them since their split with The Story So Far and they've only improved with every release.

Will definitely be picking of some merch or at the very least sending some kind of donation their way at some point this weekend.

One thing that I have to comment on though, is how well this scene has reacted to this event. A bunch of other bands are doing what they can to support these guys and to see that is awesome.

I'm curious of the cause. I know there have been a bunch of tour-vets telling young bands to take a night off vs risk driving excessively long drives during the night for a bucket of reasons.

This is a tragic thing and I wish them and their families the best. Vehicles are weapons and its scary as hell.

This post reeks of arrogance and subtle, unneeded jabs.

Look, it's tragic, Maker are great guys, I hope they all make a quick recovery and get back on the road. But let's be realistic: I live in an area where ice builds up on roads for 5 months a year so bad that cars have been known to drive straight off the overpass just like that. If my car flew off the side of the road on the way to work tomorrow morning, it wouldn't be indicative of the "sacrifice" I'm making to sell books to people. It would be an awful fucking situation, that's what it would be.

I agree. But you're gonna get hate on here. I've been in your position amd then they wish death on me. Just give it up.

This is awful. I know some of these guys, they're from literally the next town over. A friend of mine was actually in the van, I haven't heard anything from him and I hope he's alright.

The guys in last call are donating the proceeds from their new album sales to Maker to help with these expenses. I'll be buying the album this weekend and donating a little extra. It's $10 or name your price I believe, so anybody who wants to get that new last call record and help out should go to their Facebook and click the link. I'd post it, but I don't know how on my phone.

I heard about this. So much respect. Will be doing this.

This is terrible, I went out to Pittsburgh last night to see Pentimento and Such Gold and both bands mentioned it. They were pretty torn up. Ben said "I don't know if I believe in God, but if you do, please pray for my frieds. And if you don't, please, just send your positive vibes their way."
Scary stuff, I wish the absolute best.

ugh alright. you like them. why not leave it at that? it's a music website, we post about music-related things, even if it's terrible car accidents. if this was a website for people who are papa john's delivery drivers, we'd post about their wrecks too. subtle enough?

Called the band great dudes, mentioned that I'll be donating, and mentioned that this could happen to anyone, there's no need for you to come in here and steer the focus away from the band, thanks.
stephen.. one of my biggest peaves is when a subject at hand is about someone else (in this case maker) and you've decided to talk about yourself instead. in the future, please wait till someone asks for that. right now this comment section shouldnt have included your bullshit. with that being said id like to comment that not only are van and trailer accidents the scariest thing ever, but its financial burden goes above and beyond the immediate 8G's -14G's off the accident. then you have the lost wages of missing the shows/lost merch sales/lost everything in gear?/flying everyone home.. its like a bad dream you cant wake up from.. so i will be donating

Totally not the point of my post. This isn't about 'the sacrifice bands make to play for you' it's about a shirty thing that happened to a good band. Wasn't questionig the post.

I didn't talk about myself at all until people started attacking me. In the future, please read posts in context, thanks.
In fact, posting about something which you know has been addresses at least 5 different times by myself is just further distractions from the situation at hand.
