The Ghost Inside's label are donating future album profits directly to the band following crash

With medical and funeral costs close to $200,000 USD it's a very generous move.

About a month ago metalcore group The Ghost Inside were involved in a serious head-on crash with another car after a show in Lubbock, Texas. The crash resulted in the death of their bus driver, the occupant of the car they hit and varying levels of injuries to the band. As a result two members of the band had to be air evacuated and were initially in a critical condition but now all band members are expected to make a full recovery. However, the cost of this incident is tremendous and while no figures have been quoted a GoFundMe has a target of $150,000 USD which speaks volume about what the band will be paying. In addition the band were unable to join the current Australian Big Ass Tour, with Hands Like Houses now replacing them.

So in an extremely generous move The Ghost Inside's Label Epitaph Records have announced they will donate all profits from sale of The Ghost Inside albums to the band until they recove. Proving there are some fucking amazing humans out there and restoring my faith in humanity. You can read the full statement below:
