Italian doom metal band Messa was unfortunately involved in a very serious bus accident over the weekend that left several band members requiring surgery. According to vocalist Sara Bianchin on the band's now-active GoFundMe, Messa and their crew all survived the head-on crash and are asking for fans help in these difficult times.
"Yesterday night after the last show of our tour we got in a car crash," said Bianchin. "Another driver coming from the opposite direction went straight at us on our lane and impacted with us frontally.
"The whole crew is alive, the van is destroyed and some of us will have to undergo surgery. We are okay, but it will take us some months to recover fully. More updates will come soon.
"If you want to support us during these hard times, you can buy our records via Bandcamp or donate here to help for everything we'll have to go through. Covering the travel back home, damaged equipment, medical and legal expenses.
"We probably won't be able to answer all of you, but we do appreciate and cherish each and every thought for us. The relief of hearing the live voices of us all, checking on each other's state while in the van right after the accident, is something that will not fade away easily. Much love to you all. To better days."
