On Monday, we posted a live review and photos of up-and-coming Liverpool band Her’s, who were also gracious enough to let MAGNET photographer Chris Sikich shoot portraits of them that night in Philadelphia. Two days later, the duo (Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading) and their tour manager (Minneapolis musician Trevor Engelbrektson) were killed in a car accident in Arizona while still on tour. Our hearts go out to the families, friends and fellow fans of Fitzpatrick, Laading and Engelbrektson.
“They were so nice and promising,” says Sikich. “The crowd loved them, too. Such devastating news.”
