While traveling after a performance in August 2012, Baroness was involved in a bus crash near Bath, United Kingdom that resulted in serious injuries for band members and their road crew. To assist with finances during recovery, friends and family of the band set up the Baroness Relief fund.
With all proceeds going towards the band and crew’s medical expenses, an auction of items will be available from the following publications, artists and bands: Decibel Magazine, Earthless, Jeremy Hush, Kylesa, Meshuggah, Municipal Waste, Mastodon, Napalm Death, Neurosis, Red Fang, Tankcrimes Records, Slam Magazine and Victims. These exclusive items include a snare drum signed by Neurosis, a limited edition beer holster from Red Fang and vinyl signed by Kylesa. For pictures of the announced items and more information about the auction, visit the Baroness Relief fund Facebook page here.
The auction will take place via eBay, and the exact dates have not yet been announced. Including a Paypal link for donations, an official website of the Baroness Relief fund is expected to become available soon.
