I Prevail’s tour bus catches fire: “We woke up to the bus being engulfed in flames”

While on the way to play a show in Fresno, California, on the Made To Destroy Tour with Pierce The Veil and Neck Deep, I Prevail's tour bus caught on fire.

Luckily, the band was not injured, but they did lose a lot of personal belongings—including unreleased music and equipment. Staying true to their name, the band carried on with the show as planned, despite the scary incident.

The band had the following statements on their social media pages:

"Hey everyone, this morning we all woke up to our bus catching on fire and going up in flames. Lost a lot of belongings, but the show must go on.

We WILL still be playing in Fresno tonight with Pierce The Veil + Neck Deep."

Vocalist Brian Burkheiser reported, "Everyone is okay, but we unfortunately lost a lot of stuff."

Guitarist Dylan Bowman said on instagram, "We did lose a lot of unreleased digital media, as [well as] most of our personal belongings such as laptops phones and wallets were ruined."

Vocalist Eric Vanlerberghe gave a shout out on Twitter to Neck Deep for helping them out.

Drummer Lee Runestad says, "Everyone's safe."

 

We woke up to our bus catching on fire this morning. Everyone's safe. Our belongings... Not so much.
