Almost 1600 people have donated to a GoFundMe campaign that was launched for The Ghost Inside following their horrible accident yesterday. So far over $64,000 has been raised — and among the top donors: Bring Me The Horizon.
BMTH donated a hefty sum of $10,000 to the band. Here’s what they said about the accident:
Yesterday as we came offstage we heard that our good friends in The Ghost Inside were involved in a terrible collision whilst on their tour bus in America. Unfortunately the drivers in both vehicles sadly passed away, and a large number of the band and crew have sustained serious injuries and are currently in care.
Our thoughts are currently with the band, crew and families of all involved in this horrible accident.
We first toured with The Ghost Inside in 2008 and have remained good friends with them since. Proceeds from our merchandise on this tour have been donated to a gofundme account set up to help with medical bills.
The Ghost Inside collided with an 18-wheeler outside of El Paso, totaling their bus and killing the drivers of both vehicles. Three of the members were listed under critical condition after suffering serious injuries.
