News - We Are Defiance Need your help


We Are Defiance are calling on fans to help them afford a new van, to replace the van that was written off last year. You can read a statement from the band below:-

“Last winter our band was involved in a terrible van accident while on tour in Kentucky . In result our vocalist Brian Calzini was hospitalized and had to undergo surgery. When we wrecked we completely totalled our van and trailer. We lost some minor equipment but the HUGE loss was our transportation. Through out the next few months we were able to save up and buy a used van. We were unable to afford a new trailer so for the past year we have been mot been able to bring lots of necessities on the road with us with out having a trailer. Most of our equipment we are can't bring with us and it gives our band lots of restrictions. We are coming to you today in desperation asking for help. We are asking for $1,500 dollars to help us buy a used trailer. Anyone who donates to help us we will be rewarding you with gifts for being amazing awesome fans!”
