Relient K lose instruments, equipment and belongings in devastating fire

HITMAKING American rock group Relient K lost their band bus in a fire in Pennsylvania on 28th June. The band had left Creation East Festival in Pennsylvania where they had just headlined and were in transit to Cornerstone Festival in Illinois, when their bus caught fire and the band had to evacuate their vehicle. Thankfully no one was hurt. Wrote Pennsylvania Times, "The blaze and attendant smoke and water damaged or destroyed the band's instruments, sound equipment and tour merchandise, plus the members' laptop computers, cell phones, cameras, iPods, clothing and other personal items. . . [Matt] Thiessen said his items alone, including a laptop containing about 100 unfinished songs, tallied up to about $7,000." CR
