Panzerfaust’s Gear Destroyed in Massive Van Wreck
Panzerfaust narrowly avoided death earlier today when their van hit a patch of black ice, “spiralling us into the frozen creek below,” according to a statement on Facebook:
“Today we narrowly avoided a swift visit from the angel of death. While driving through the Northern pass from Vancouver to Edmonton we hit black ice – spiralling us into the frozen creek below. Despite being pinned beneath the crushed vehicle, submerged in the frigid water, we managed to crawl from the wreckage; all of us relatively unscathed. Be that as it may, much of our gear and merchandise has been destroyed, and we have been informed that insurance will cover none of it.
“Needless to say, our performance in Regina will have to be cancelled. We have every intention of finishing the tour, however, some tremendous financial burdens stand in our way. We humbly ask anyone that can assist us financially in any way to help us see this campaign through. Anything helps, and we would be indebted to you. One way or another, Panzerfaust has every intention of spearheading forward, as our dignity demands it of us.
“Any donations can be sent via Paypal to:
“May death tremble to take us,
The band also included these photos of the wreck:
Needless to say, this could have been much, much worse, and we should all be grateful, first and foremost, that the band escaped relatively unscathed. That being said, it obviously sucks that they lost all their gear. If you’re able to, we encourage you to help our metal brothers out and donate what you can.
