This winter has been especially cruel to traveling musicians and their vans. The season’s misfortune has now stuck Self Defense Family. The band were recently in a van accident as the result black ice; you can check out a statement from the band below.

“Van crashed. 

So, our shit crashed on black ice. Everyone is ok, gear is ok, but van is janky and shitted on. 

We’re considering all options for the next few days. Van rental for a week? Rideshare to the next three shows until we get our van back? Bullet train? Living in Seattle?

Hit us if you’ve got a lead.”

So far, the band have not posted a donation page. But they are asking if anyone in the Northwest can help with a van rental.

Self Defense Family released their latest album, Try Me, earlier this month on Deathwish Inc.
