Candy guitarist Drew Stark recently suffered some serious injuries after getting hit by a car in Los Feliz, CA. You can help him out with medical bills by donating via GoFundMe.

The following statement was issued:

“As some of you know, Drew and a friend were seriously injured Wednesday, January 26th in Los Feliz Ca. when struck by a vehicle while walking down the sidewalk of Hollywood Blvd in front of the Covell Restaurant. He sustained compound fractures in both legs among other serious injuries. Drew will be in the hospital for at least the next week for surgeries to repair the damage. However, we are anticipating a lengthy recovery and are looking to ease his financial burden over the next few months, so all he needs to concentrate on is getting back on his feet, literally. We thank you for your prayers and well wishes, all much appreciated.”

An update has since been shared as well:

“We are happy to report Drew had a successful surgery today. He may have problems with security checkpoints and metal detectors moving forward, but he’s one step closer to getting back on his feet. He has a couple more surgery’s this week, and a couple more weeks in the hospital Thank you all. Your love and generosity is overwhelming.”

Candy Sign With Relapse Records, Release Two New Songs

Candy have signed a new deal with Relapse Records. With this news, the band have also released a new 7 inch titled “Super-Stare.“ That effort comes with the title track and another new song titled “Win Free Love.“ The band commented:

“‘Super-Stare‘ is agoraphobia rather than claustrophobia. The ultimate trip; the song is a journey into a testing ground in which each living thing tries every day not to be eaten. As it unravels, the listener grows oppressed by the great weight of the music around them and gradually loses confidence in orderly civilization.”
