Betting half the bands credit scores went up in the smoke as well


anonymous 10/15/2016 10:02:32 PM

How the hell is the first band of three,playing 1500 cap rooms afford a bus and a trailer like that.


anonymous 10/15/2016 10:12:22 PM

Wow yinz are some solid people talking shit on people you A. Don't know and B. Give back to their fans. These people lost their belongings how the fck would you feel if the was your child, brother, friend, or and person that has significant meaning to you? Grow the fck up!


anonymous 10/15/2016 10:20:22 PM

Shut up queer


anonymous 10/15/2016 10:21:55 PM

Are you people really talking shit?? The people have familes... these people have lives, that were just put down. Its none of your business if they can afford a bus... grow the fck up and quit being a pssy ass bully. Thank god no one got hurt. And that they are okay.


anonymous 10/15/2016 10:35:36 PM

This is a bad ass band love your music. I'm very sorry for your guys loss and send my prayers from northern Minnesota if you need anything just let me know or try somehow


anonymous 10/15/2016 10:36:48 PM

How the fck do these people have the audacity to be talking shit? First off, it's none of your fcking business how they can afford their bus. Secondly, they are extremely talented and Fresno was not deprived of their performance tonight no matter how much you sad fcks wish they didn't make it out there. Lastly, how the fck would you feel if your property was damaged? You wouldn't be very happy. So, why don't you shut your fcking mouths and quit talking shit.


anonymous 10/15/2016 10:38:32 PM

^totally someone from the bands dad


anonymous 10/15/2016 10:52:22 PM

Ooooo, Look at you bada$$ keyboard warriors...No relation to the band, just not a thoughtless selfish person like some!!!


anonymous 10/15/2016 10:52:41 PM

Do you haters realize they are signed to a major record label? Quit hating and enjoy the music! -much love from az


anonymous 10/15/2016 10:54:00 PM

Don't be dicks guys. This band is amazing. All you need to #Getrowdy.


anonymous 10/15/2016 11:28:29 PM

All of these motherfckers who think it is hard to afford a bus, lol. Buy used and not new and the things are fcking cheap, they don't hold their value at all.


anonymous 10/16/2016 12:18:28 AM

Screw everyone talking shit....I Prevail is by far my favorite band. Sending prayers yalls way!


anonymous 10/16/2016 12:42:27 AM

Y'all talk shit in the comments but step to the band mates and won't say a fcking word.


anonymous 10/16/2016 12:49:02 AM

So many butthurt 14 year olds and most likely members of the bands on here getting all pissed over the comments section. I just wish all these keyboard warriors belongings had been on that bus too. You've all earned it. Especially that girly man who said if you need anything let me know somehow despite being anonymous. Amazing.


allybbyxox 10/16/2016 2:16:13 AM

To all the people talking shit you are what's wrong with society. They could've lost their lives, thankfully they didn't, and that is nothing to be like "oh it's good that they're not playing". You need to realize that you will never understand how they we're feeling during this very real situation. This situation is not a joking matter, and the fact that you think it's okay to make a joke about it just goes to show what kind of person you really are


anonymous 10/16/2016 4:36:49 AM

Daddy will have to buy a new bus oh no. gays


anonymous 10/16/2016 4:50:53 AM

lol at people lecturing life lessons on the lambgoat message board. Worse than the people making fun of the fire


anonymous 10/16/2016 6:17:55 AM

Are you fcking serious! Why the fck would you be making fun of them right now they lost their bus, belongings, and they could have been hurt. They earned everything that they have. Like get a life they're making a lot more money than you guys ever will!


anonymous 10/16/2016 6:18:27 AM

I've never even listened to this band. They are on Fearless though. That explains the bus. Bands with two vocalists are stoked.


anonymous 10/16/2016 6:21:04 AM

Any band becoming famous using a cover song is garbage


anonymous 10/16/2016 6:25:32 AM

How scary! Just saw yall at the Atlanta show, me & my step daughter even got to meet & take pix w/ Eric. It's disgusting reading these comments. People rly have nothing better to do then sit their tacos asses behind an anonymous button & troll.Brian, Eric & the rest of the band, I'm sorry this happened to you but very glad you're all okay & look forward to seeing in the future. I don't need to hide behind an anonymous button! Much love Amanda Schuchard?? find me on Facebook.


anonymous 10/16/2016 6:39:02 AM

a lot of bummed little kids that didn't get the MO on lamb goat comments


anonymous 10/16/2016 6:42:43 AM

This is Amanda Schuchard. I'm so stoked that this happened. Take a cab if you can't handle a bus LOL


anonymous 10/16/2016 7:32:34 AM

This proves there is a god. They were gonna be the next Nickleback. Thank u god


anonymous 10/16/2016 8:00:38 AM

the only thing worse than being in fresno, is being at a I prevail show in fresno.


anonymous 10/16/2016 8:27:14 AM

To the people talking shit about I Prevail let me tell you they're great fcking people and they're a great band. They make wonderful music and they have supportive fans. Why does it even matter what they travel in?!!! If they can afford it then let them get it. They're getting bigger and the people who were talking shit watch them be played on radio stations and you not being able to avoid them because they're everywhere. Stop being fcking c*nts.


anonymous 10/16/2016 8:34:48 AM

Amanda Schuchard here, I have to admit I lied in my previous post about being glad you all are okay. I'm actually upset that nobody got hurt and you were able to save some of your equipment. Someone should have gotten hurt and you should have lost everything. You guys are a bunch of total gays. Hit me up on Facebook.


anonymous 10/16/2016 9:01:11 AM

I love when people outside the lambgoat community stop by to tell us how big a piece of shit we all are. Warms my heart Oh and yeah, total bus flip. Bad things happen to bad people


united_ninety_three 10/16/2016 9:11:09 AM

lol @ all the crybaby fanboy meltdowns in here.


anonymous 10/16/2016 9:41:04 AM

I seen you guys on tour. You guys are amazing. Also your music has inspired me in so many ways. Don't listen to the hatred on this post. When you have haters your succeeding never forget that. Love you guys glad you are safe. Sorry to hear that some stuff was destroyed though.


anonymous 10/16/2016 9:51:52 AM

This band sold over 60k EPs hahaha obviously they're doing something right


anonymous 10/16/2016 10:18:11 AM

Wow guys you are fcking dicks I was there last night My friend and I had passed their bus earlier in the day. Think if you lost family photos, keepsakes, your clothes etc... Would you like it if people said this about you or wished you had gotten hurt? They are a great band my friend and I drive 4 hours to see them cuz it was my 22nd birthday best bday ever. I need aloes to Eric after they were done last night he's chill as fck.


anonymous 10/16/2016 10:19:23 AM

You people are what is wrong with society and they not dicks like a lot of singers and bands they have fun and be dorky when they want which is awesome. So you guys can fck off and stop ragging on people you don't know. Matt Rhoads


anonymous 10/16/2016 10:19:44 AM

I pissed all over my girlfriends face last night. She loved it and pooped all over my chest.


anonymous 10/16/2016 10:22:54 AM

God dammit !! Why cant a bus fire happen to Emmure ?? I want to watch that piece of shit Frankie Palmeri burn like the Olympic torch


anonymous 10/16/2016 10:24:37 AM

Talked to Eric* Matt Rhoads


anonymous 10/16/2016 11:13:39 AM

They cant afford the bus. Also its a piece of shit (hence why it blew up). They laid off most of their crew cause they couldnt afford them after their headliner because of the bus cost.


anonymous 10/16/2016 12:22:41 PM

Wow yall are such pathetic children. Hiding behind your screens. I name dropped myself bc im not some fake ass shit stain starting drama. I'm a fan! Go fck yourselves please. Lmfao what a joke yall are. Amanda Schuchard


anonymous 10/16/2016 12:38:06 PM

^^^ When the pot calls the kettle a nig


anonymous 10/16/2016 1:12:11 PM

Amanda here again, I hope you know I'm just joking when I try to defend this band. Don't take me the wrong way, I want to see these guys and their pathetic music burn pretty bad. They suck live and they spent their life savings on a bus. It's just that my schizophrenia has me on the fence about how I'm feeling. This band is still a bunch of gays. Also fight me. Also don't believe me when I'm defending them. Also Matt Rhoads hit me up on Facebook you gay.


anonymous 10/16/2016 1:15:08 PM

Man that sucks. To all the trolls making fun of this , go fck yourselves.


anonymous 10/16/2016 1:19:40 PM

It's a shame no one got hurt.


anonymous 10/16/2016 2:34:18 PM

Glad Shane from down in it is ok

anonymous 10/17/2016 6:46:57 AM

Who doesn't have their wallet and phone on them nearly all the time?


anonymous 10/17/2016 8:27:38 AM

lol @ "tacos asses"


anonymous 10/17/2016 2:26:33 PM

Hey Amanda Schuchard here.. Fearless is not a major label, dingleberry.


anonymous 10/17/2016 3:57:52 PM

"The band is best known for their cover of Taylor Swift's hit "Blank Space". They released the cover via YouTube on December 1, 2014." Two singers, sweet autotunecore, Jesus is stoked. Also, probably should have sent that Galaxy 7 note back when the recall happened.


anonymous 10/17/2016 4:30:38 PM

STEP 1)Daddy buys kiddie rock band tour bus STEP 2)Daddy pays for full coverage insurance STEP 3)Band sells 60k units but never has made the news STEP 4)Band parks on the side of the road and lights bus on fire STEP 5)Giddy bandmates making the news for the first time spam their own comment section 67 times


anonymous 10/17/2016 5:54:11 PM

Their career will end up like their bus..


anonymous 10/18/2016 7:59:00 AM

Yo atleast they aren't asking for handouts. In my book this band is pretty legit. Hopefully everything gets right for them


anonymous 10/18/2016 9:13:18 AM

anonymous 10/18/2016 11:49:08 PM

"Mom, I SWEAR, we won't burn the second bus you buy us!"


anonymous 10/19/2016 2:37:28 PM

You dummies know bands rent busses from bus company's right? 450-550 per day for the bus, driver gets 250 per day up to 450 miles the overdives are paid to the driver another 250 up to 600 miles and another 250 for over 600. Cost of fuel,inside maintenance materials(to, toilet cleaner paper towels), generated service, laundry/linens service all adds up to a little more than 1000 bucks a day for the cheaper busses. That is the standard dumb dumbs


anonymous 10/19/2016 5:45:33 PM

^They need to watch out on you stalking them!


anonymous 10/19/2016 5:49:21 PM

NO IM HAPPY BUT THESE GUYS ARE THE SAD ONES LIFELINES IS TANKING BUT MAYBE THIS FREE PUB WILL GET IT CHARTING AROUND 180-200 *throws this band a LIFELINE* LMAO


anonymous 10/21/2016 12:21:48 AM

They deserved this. End of story. It's a damn shame nobody got hurt or worse.


anonymous 10/24/2016 1:35:32 PM

Did their bags of douche catch fire?


anonymous 10/24/2016 3:04:30 PM

Shit band had to make a Taylor Swift cover to garner attention. That's typical with bands these days. Dude, let's cover Adele!
