As most of you know, a tornado hit the venue where we were playing on March 31st in Belvidere, Illinois and we lost the RV we had rented to travel and sleep during our first US tour – it was completely gutted, and we had to rent a new one to continue the shows. As we already imagined, Dealing with insurance and claims has many pitfalls and there is a very high chance of things getting complicated for us.It will not be as easy as we thought we will have to call lawyers to try to resolve our situation.We are guided as best we can,but since we are not US citizens it is What is clear is that we are not entitled to compensation from the state, which further complicates our problem.”

We know that it is a large amount that we probably will not reach, but at that moment, any assistance and any amount will really help a lot in reducing the financial damage that we will face.We avoid having to ask you for help as much as possible, but at the moment, it is impossible for us to cover this The costs are with the band’s money only.”
