LIVERPOOL BAND HER’S and their tour manager have been killed in a crash in the US.

Duo Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading and manager Trevor Engelbrektson died while travelling to a concert in California on Wednesday.

Their record label confirmed the tragic news in a statement on Facebook

Heist Or Hit said: “We are all heartbroken. Their energy, vibrancy and talent came to define our label.

“As humans, they were warm, gentle and hilarious. Each time they stopped by the office made for an uplifting experience.”

The statement added that the duo were in the US “playing to thousands of adoring fans”.

The world was at their feet. Everyone here at the label is overwhelmed and distraught. We have lost our friends and the world has been denied their talent.

The band had recently released their debut album, Invitation to Her’s, and were filmed performing for BBC Introducing in Texas earlier this week.
