U.K. Band Her's Killed in Car Crash on Tour
Published Mar 28, 2019U.K. jangle-pop duo Her's have died following a road accident on tour. Members Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading, along with their tour manager Trevor Engelbrektson, were killed en route to a show in Santa Ana, CA, on Wednesday morning (March 27).
The news was broken by their label, Heist or Hit, in a Facebook post on Thursday. In the statement, the label wrote, "As humans, they were warm, gentle and hilarious. Each time they stopped by the office made for an uplifting experience. To say they were close would be an underestimation of a friendship that was genuinely beautiful to witness; they loved one another like brothers."
Her's formed in Liverpool and released two albums: Songs of Her's in 2017 and Invitation to Her's in 2018. The band were in the middle of a North American tour, which included a show in Toronto on March 5 and a stint at SXSW in Austin.
Following the tour, the duo were set to perform at the Mallorca Live Festival in Spain and the Gold Sounds Festival in the U.K. in May.
No information has been officially released about the accident.
