Touring in the winter is risky business. Just recently Within The Ruins wrecked their van in PA, and now Motionless in White is the latest band to suffer the same fate. Thankfully no one in the band was hurt and they won’t be missing any shows.
The band posted this update on their Facebook:
Well, after years of touring the country in the winter, 2 days ago we finally experienced the wrath of the notorious stretch of Interstate 80 between Cheyenne WY and Salt Lake that everyone seems to wreck on.
We are all 100% okay, and considering the tragedy and loss far greater than ours that many other bands/people in general have suffered on I-80 or I-70, we are incredibly lucky and grateful that all we lost was a van and not someones life.
Fortunately for us, we are traveling with 2 vans on this tour and we were able to jump in our other van with our crew members and continue on the tour as planned. All upcoming dates of the tour remain entirely intact and nothing has changed. We’re still coming!
The band is currently on tour with For Today, New Years Day, and Ice Nine Kills.
