Get Dead post lengthy statement discussing van wreck

As most of you know, Get Dead totaled their van the other day after hitting black ice on the way to the Omaha, Nebraska stop on the Fat Tour. Today, the San Francisco punks posted quite a lengthy statement discussing the accident in great detail. Here’s an excerpt of the statement, which can be read in its entirety on the Fat Wreck tumblr:

“Yesterday evening we were driving down the 80 listening to Masked Intruder “Stick em up”, coming from Minneapolis, heading towards the next stop on the Fat Wreck Tour 2013 in Omaha. It had been raining pretty bad all day and eventually started snowing. The temperature dropped about 15 degrees in a matter of minutes and the wet road became a black slab of ice. A gust of wind blew our trailer, which caused us to pitch side ways. Our driver Peter tried to regain control, but over corrected and by then it was too late. We were literally outta control and our momentum was too much. We pitched side to side a few times, but we all knew what was coming. Peter and Mike were up front belted in. Tim and Scotty were in the first bucket row belted in. Me and our Roadie Merch Man Drew were in the back seat unbuckled and MOKI was in the bed in the back unbuckled. When Rose (our dearly departed van) started to flip, me and drew latched on to each other and MOKI bear hugged us from behind and we made a lil’ human ball. The van basically did a 360 flip, landing almost into oncoming traffic in the mud of the median. Mike’s seat caught the brunt of the impact collapsing the shotgun seat’s roof.

Once again, we’re glad everyone made it out of this accident without injury. If you’re going to a show on the Fat Tour, which also features Less Than JakeAnti-Flag, and Masked Intruder, please help Get Dead out and buy some stuff from their merch table. The remaining dates can be found below.
