UK Band Her's Die While On Tour In The US

Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading, from the Liverpool band Her's, as well as their tour manager Trevor Engelbrektson, died on Wednesday.

The band's label Heist or Hit broke the heartbreaking news on Facebook.

The three men died in a road accident while travelling to a show in California.

The band had just released their debut album and were playing throughout North America to sold-out shows.

"To say they were close would be an underestimation of a friendship that was genuinely beautiful to witness; they loved one another like brothers," their label's statement read.

"Everyone here at the label is overwhelmed and distraught. We have lost our friends and the world has been denied their talent."

Many fans and people who had worked with the three men were shocked by the news and remembered them fondly.

"Such awful awful news. Always put on a great show and could tell how much they loved this music and each other," wrote one fan. 

One of their final posts on Facebook showed them enjoying their time in the US.
