Ginger’s cracked mirror finish Silvertone Apocolypse Pro guitar up for grabs!

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

On December 22nd, our brother and bassist Scott Sorry was diagnosed with a cystic brain tumour.

He will be undergoing surgery on December 26th, with the hope the surgeons will be able to remove it successfully, but as Scott lives in the US, the costs of his medical treatment are very large.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help raise some funds to help Scott and his family out – there’s no good time for news like this, but Christmas time seems to add an extra cruel twist to the news.

If you are able, please spare whatever cash you can – the cost of a pint with your mates, for example, would all go to help out Scott with his recovery. You can donate at www.gofundme.com/scottsorry

Thank you for your support!
