Within The Ruins are lucky to be alive after the band were involved in a very serious accident which saw their tour van roll over three times.
The band were travelling in heavy snow in Pennsylvania as they travelled to California to start a tour with Suicide Silence when the accident occurred – writing off their van, trailer and all of their gear.
Guitarist Joe Cocchi says: “We rolled about three times, from what I can remember. Our van and trailer are totalled.
“All I can say is we’re happy to be alive. I don’t know how, but none of us were injured.”
Despite this setback the band have assured their fans they are aiming to join the tour on its third date, in Seattle on February 20th. They have launched a GoFundMe campaign to try and raise the money they need to replace their smashed equipment.
