According to Billboard, the death toll from the the tragic fire at the Colectiv, in Bucharest, Romania, which occurred during Goodbye To Gravity’s album release show, has now increased to 60 people. As previously reported, vocalist, Andrei Galut is the only surviving member of the band.
This tragedy resulted Mayor Cristian Popescu Piedone resigning, after being arrested for suspicions of corruption, since he may have helped give the club a permit to operate. The Romanian Prime Minister, Victor Ponta and his government also stepped down, after being called corrupt by protesters for having inadequate safety standards.
The club owners themselves were arrested for manslaughter, due to them not following safety standards. The fire was a result of pyrotechnics, which set the foam insulation ablaze.
