Capetown Bluesy Rock band Basson Laubscher and The Violent Free Peace have launched their online store to raise funds to offset the loss of their European due to the global coronavirus pandemic outbreak. The band was three dates in on their first European tour when lockdowns started happening and hey needed to get out of Amsterdam and head home. They managed to get the last flight back to Cape Town that was available. This has left them with huge debts. What they’ve done is to launch their online store for merch and physical products so they can try and make some money pay. There is a donation option too, but the focus is on selling mech and vinyl. In an effort to try to recoup some of their cash, they’ve just launched their own online store so fans can order merchandise directly from them. If you’re willing, you can also make a donation via their PayPal account to help cover their costs. Watch Basson’s message here:
Basson Laubscher has commented:
“So, things are a tad crazy in the world now. Strange times are afoot but in every tough situation, there is always hope and a silver lining. We are super excited to announce that our shop is now online and ready to roll. Get yourself some shirts, patches, stickers, albums and our limited edition Testify vinyl to soothe the quarantine blues and lockdown woes. We also have our Facebook set up and ready for goodies too. We know we are all going through tough times currently, but we believe in the African spirit of ubuntu and try supporting and helping where we can. Thanks as always for your support and love!! Keep Safe!!”
