By now many of you may have heard that Trevor Butler, the bass player for Bottom of the Hudson, died yesterday, June 29th, when their tour van went off the highway following a tire blowout.

The accident also injured others including their new drummer who is in critical condition at a nearby hospital:

the story via pitchfork.

We’ve known the Bottom Of The Hudson folks for a few years now, toured with them in spring of 2004, and they’re such good, good people and wonderful musicians. Our hearts and sympathies go out to them at this terrible time.

So very sad…
