Genghis Tron Tour Cancelled After To Van Wreck
Genghis Tron wiped out in New Mexico, ending their US tour in support of their debut CDEP, "Cloak Of Love". The band wrecked after hitting a bunny at 70mph.
"We're all back home safely now, taking time to relax and spend time with our families and ladyfriends," says guitarist Hamilton. "The crash was pretty terrifying, and we're still shocked to be alive and unharmed, five days after the fact. After hitting a jackrabbit in the New Mexico desert going 70 MPH, we lost control and rolled off the highway, landing upside down. Our vehicle and the trailer - which was ripped off our rig and flung a good 20 or 30 feet into the desert - were both completely totalled. A good amount of our stuff inside the trailer was messed up, but luckily a decent chunk of equipment seems to have survived the crash safely - if terribly banged up. We're having the surviving stuff shipped back home in August, upon when we will touch it tenderly and take it in for repairs. We'll probably put a lot of our t-shirts on sale online as a fund-raiser then, too. It's gonna take a long time before we can get all of this settled with insurance and save up/borrow the money to replace everything else which was lost, but we're not going to let such a situation deter us from making music and playing shows. It's just going to take a while. We hope to be road-ready by the end of the year so that we can tour in December and/or January. We'll eventually hit all of the spots where we had to cancel shows; it'll just take a while. Don't forget about us out there!"
"In the meantime, we're gonna focus on getting things back to normal as well as working on hard on material for our upcoming album. Thanks for all of the emails and messages in the last week. It means a lot to hear from people who care about our music. We'll keep you updated."
