According to The PRP, Short Fuse 59, a hardcore band from Colorado, were rear-ended by an apparent drunk driver on Interstate 5 in Sacramento County while they were on their way home from tour. The crash caused them to lose control of their van, which ended up overturning into the center meridian. The accident claimed the life of If I Fail vocalist Colin Michael Mulhern, who was on tour selling merch for the band, and it also left members of Short Fuse 59 with various injures. Drummer Patrick Carney is currently in a coma and a GoFundMe has been set up to help him with medical costs. The unidentified woman that caused the crash was uninjured and has been arrested on suspicion of DUI. Drugs and alcohol were found in her vehicle.
If I Fail commented on the loss of their singer::
“We would like to thank everyone that has reached out to us during this difficult time. We are absolutely devastated of the loss of our brother and vocalist Colin Michael. The whole situation has left us speechless. He will be greatly missed by a countless amount of lives that he has touched.
Please keep your thoughts with our brothers in SHORT FUSE 59. There will be a gofundme link in the comments for Patrick Carney who is still recovering in the hospital.
If anyone wants to share memories of Colin please do so in the comments. We would love to hear your stories how Colin has impacted your life.
We had just finished recording our new EP and we want everyone to hear it as soon as possible. All Colin ever wanted was people to listen and sing his lyrics back to him. We are aiming to release it this Friday, August 31st. Titled “The Author of all your Pain”
Thank you for your continuous support. We love you Colin.
