Epitaph Records has announced that it will pass on all profits from records it has released by The Ghost Inside to the band, in order to aid their recovery from injuries sustained in a bus crash last month.

As previously reported, the drivers of the band’s tour bus and the lorry they collided with while travelling through Texas were killed in the incident. The members of the band are still recovering from their injuries. “For some of us, simply learning to walk again will be a monumental undertaking”, they said in a statement recently.

Posting to the label’s Facebook page, Epitaph boss Brett Gurewitz said: “Our hearts go out to our brothers who have endured a catastrophic accident, with devastating injuries. In light of this, Epitaph has decided to donate all profits from the sale of all The Ghost Inside albums worldwide, directly to the band, indefinitely”.

“If you want to support The Ghost Inside in their time of need, you can now do so by buying their music”, he continued. “Epitaph won’t make a profit while the band silently fight to rebuild their lives. We wish them a speedy recovery and return to health”.
