Betraying The Martyrs – Summer Rapture Interrupted By Dave Schwartz
Betraying The Martyrs were out on
their first headline tour of America, promoting their upcoming
album “Rapture” when tragedy struck.
The incident occurred July 11th,
around 4 a.m. – after their Los Angeles show. While
driving down the freeway, the trailer portion of the band's
Mercedes Sprinter van caught fire. All band and crew
members were able to safely to exit the vehicle with no major
injuries. Tragically, all of the band's equipment was
lost in the blaze.
DaBelly was fortunate to catch up with
BTM just two days prior to the incident. Vocalist Arron
Matts was in good spirits when they played Club Red in Mesa,
AZ. – beaming with excitement for the new record and looking
forward to continuing their tour. Watch for a
re-schedule this spring.
