Car fire destroys Candy Claws' gear in the middle of East Coast tour

Oh, man, bummer news coming from the Candy Claws camp today. The outfit, in the midst of an East Coast tour, lost all of its gear yesterday, along with their merch and a good deal of personal effects in car fire somewhere on I-76 in Pennsylvania. No word yet as to the cause of the fire, but as you can see from the picture above and the ones after the jump, the vehicle is a total loss.

Fortunately, all of the members of the Fort Collins-based act reportedly escaped the blaze without injury and are planning to finish the remaining dates on this leg of the tour, before returning to Colorado next week, and then heading back for more dates on the West Coast. A Paypal account has been established, and according to Greta Cornett, there's talks of organizing a benefit show for the act. More details on that as they become available. [boho]
