See video below.BONZ will resume the tour on September 11 in Slidell, Louisiana. Anyone who would like to correspond with band or to find out how they can assist the band can reach them through their Facebook page or by writing to [email protected] Said BONZ in a statement: "It is with incredible heavy hearts that we have to announce that we have to cancel the rest of this leg of the 'Broken Silence' tour. "For those of you who are not aware, on Thursday the band was en route to its kickoff show in Lansing, Michigan, and perhaps the most horrifying event occurred. Our van burst into flames, and it, as well as our brand new trailer are a total loss. The band and our gear managed to come out unscathed, but our transportation did not. "We are currently back safe at home and taking the steps necessary to rock the next leg, which kicks off in Slidell, Louisiana on September 11. "All of your support and kind words mean the world to the band. We appreciate all of the offers of assistance and inquiries of how our FAM can help out. You can also help the band incredibly by purchasing our album online or pick it up in stores, or pick up something from our official website. "This band has overcame adversity many times, and this is just a minor setback. With the collective strength of the band and its FAM, we'll be back in no time, stronger and more driven than ever. "Thank you again to all for your understanding, and all who continue to lend their help and support. WE LOVE YOU!" BONZ's debut album, "Broken Silence", was released on February 13 via Eternal Sound Records. The CD features guest appearances by several musicians, including original PRIMER 55 vocalist Jason "J-Sin" Luttrell and guitar virtuoso Mike Martin (ex-STUCK MOJO, FOZZY).
