Candy Claws

"Our car caught fire in Pennsylvania, destroying all of our gear, most of our cds and other merch, Riley and Marty's everything, Kay and Meghans clothes, and tons of electronics, gps, computers, cameras, video camera, recorder.

That's life though. Tour 2010!"

That unfortunate message was posted Sunday by Colorado dream pop band Candy Claws who, as the message points out, are still on tour despite Saturday's car fire. Catch them in NYC tonight (7/13) at Pianos with We Are Country Mice or Wednesday at Glasslands with Pepper Rabbit who also play Thursday at Mercury Lounge with The Love Language.

Grab the two free MP3s above (via Pitchfork).

If you'd like to donate any money to the band (who unlike Phosphorescent will not be getting their vehicle back), you can do so via their label 2 Syllable. All tour dates below..
