Maker in Bad Accident

Posted by: Blake Solomon (11/30/12)
Maker were in a terrible accident today while traveling to Texas on tour. Their Suburban flipped, ejecting a few people, one of which is in critical condition. The band have setup a donations paypal, which you can donate to at this email - makerdonations@gmail.com. Please keep the band and it's touring family in your thoughts and prayers.

So awful. We'll be auctioning some stuff starting tomorrow to help with medical costs. I imagine other bands will be doing the same.

Great group of people. Sucks that this happened. Their music never disappoints. I hope for a speedy recovery.

Touring bands aren't special people. This pretty much applies to anyone in a car lol


Although Maker are great dudes. Might donate something tomorrow.

Obviously. Not everyone on the road is driving a van with hundreds of pounds of gear for hours upon hours weeks at a time. All it takes is something to happen with the trailer and youre fucked.

This is terrible and I wish nothing but the best for them.

Tour is scary, we've had a few close calls ourselves. Can't imagine what they are going through, hope they recover quickly.

Never heard of them before. Checked them out. They're awesome. This is very unfortunate. Will be donating when I get paid next.

dont understand why you felt the need to post that. touring bands are different, 100%, for the simple fact that not many people, make their living by literally spending all day and night in sometimes old or used cars/vans trying to make a fucking buck so assholes on websites like this can steal their music. anyone that can do this is a special type of person, and they should be treated as such. sure, nobody made these guys join a band, but this is how they get by and it's a dangerous and tough enough life as it is, without the added perils of using the US Highway system.
