The tour bus containing Periphery and Between the Buried and Me has caught fire on the UK run of their current European tour.
Periphery guitarist Misha Mansoor commented:
"Luckily it was caught early by [Periphery guitarist] Jake Bowen and our driver, so all of us are safe and sound and so are our belongings. But it happened thirty minutes after leaving Southampton [England] this morning, and most everyone was fast asleep. [It was] a hell of a terrifying way to wake up haha! We had to run up this wet embankment in whatever we were wearing (which wasn’t much) while we watched the bus burn and waited for the fire brigade to arrive. Thankfully this happened on a day off, and since all of us are safe, this won’t affect the tour!"
