Yesterday afternoon, the Appleseed Cast's van and trailer were run off the road in KS. No members of the band were in the accident, but friend and tour mate Anthony Piazza of Muscle Worship was driving and luckily is OK. On the not so lucky side, Appleseed's trailer was completely destroyed, there are damages to their tour van, and many pieces of their gear were wrecked. If you have any loot to spare and want to help them get back on the road next week, we here at Graveface really appreciate it. If you donate a minimum of $15, you'll get their new (and incredible!) album, Illumination Ritual, in just about any digital format you can imagine. If you already have this record and simply want to donate, you can send your donations to
[Graveface Records].

Following a van collision earlier this week that destroyed their trailer, damaged the vehicle, and wrecked many pieces of gear, The Appleseed Cast are raising money in hopes of getting back on the road next week. As seen above, there are two ways to donate: via Bandcamp in exchange for a digital copy of TAC's new album, Illumination Ritual, OR via Paypal set up through Their entire May tour schedule is in jeopardy of being scrapped.

TAC are also slated to play some more U.S. dates this summer. That tour includes a pair of shows at Fireside Bowl on August 8 & 9 with tourmates Heartscape Landbreak. An Aesthetic Anaesthetic will act as main support on August 8, and August 9 will feature Red Fox Grey Fox. Advance tickets for both shows are on sale now.
