"We are all heartbroken."

Both members of UK band Her's and their tour manager have been killed in a car accident while on tour in the US. 

As reported by Variety, band members Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading and tour manager Trevor Engelbrektson were travelling from Phoenix, Arizona to Santa Ana, California when the car they were travelling in collided head-on with another. It's reported that one of the vehicles were travelling in the wrong direction. 

They were in the US for a 19-show tour in promotion of their debut album, Invitation To Her's, and showcased at this year's SXSW a little over a week before their passing.

The news has been confirmed in a Facebook post by the band's label, Heist Or Hit, saying they "are all heartbroken". 

"It is with overwhelming sadness that we regretfully inform you that Liverpool band Her’s, Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading and their tour manager Trevor Engelbrektson tragically passed away in a road accident in the early hours of Wednesday, 27th March whilst travelling to a show in Santa Ana, California. We are all heartbroken," said the label.

"Having recently released their debut album Invitation to Her’s, Stephen and Audun were on their second tour of North America playing 19 dates of sold-out shows to a fanbase that adored them. The pair were one of the UK’s most loved up and coming bands.

"Their energy, vibrancy and talent came to define our label. 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." See the full post below.
