Glass Cloud In Van Accident On AP Fall Tour
Glass Cloud has been involved in a van accident while on the AP Fall Tour with Miss May I, The Ghost Inside, Like Moths To Flames, and The Amity Affliction. The band comments:
"To say we've had a rough couple of days would be a massive understatement. Yesterday morning (11-11-12) at 7am, your boys in Glass Cloud took a heavy blow. While driving through Deadman's Pass on the Oregon Trail, we started to drift on a patch of ice and lost traction while trying to regain control. Our van completely turned around 180 degrees and as we were drifting backward, our wheel clipped a rock and flipped our van and trailer onto the drivers side.
"The crash shattered all the windows on that side leaving us all laying in broken glass. It also partially caved in the roof, shattered the windshield, and caved in the entire sheet metal siding on the drivers side. Our trailer has a twisted frame and tongue, bent up wheels, the back gate is pinched shut, the roof is pushed out and everything BUT our equipment is pretty much unsalvageable (thank god for flight cases on our instruments).
"Our drummer, Chad, was driving with our tour manager Eric in the passenger seat and Myself (Travis), Josh, Jerry and our merch girl Jess in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th row respectively. When we gained our bearings and realized that we were all still able to move, we helped each other climb out through the front windshield and into the snowy Oregon moutainside. We gathered what little of our belongings we could from the wreckage and got a ride from a tow truck to the town of Pendleton located 20 miles from the crash.
"As of now, I am writing this from my phone in an Econolodge trying to figure out what we need to do to get back on the road, meet up with our good friends on The AP Tour and continue playing our music across the country for the last two weeks of shows.
"In this video and here in the description you can find out exactly how to help us in this time and get us back on the road to finish this tour and make it home safely. When we get home, the real troubles will begin with finding transportation for our gear and a replacement for our van and trailer. We appreciate any help we can get from anybody during this hellacious time we are going trough and we hope everyone else stays safe and careful during these winter months."
