The Offspring Unharmed After Vehicle Catches Fire En Route To Show

One of the vehicles that was part of The Offspring team caught fire in Canada as they were en route to Rimouski, Quebec, for a concert.

“While traveling through Canada yesterday, something flew off the vehicle in front of us and became wedged underneath one of our SUVs and it caught fire. Everyone got out safely, but the luggage, passports, laptops and pretty much everything else was destroyed,” the band said in a message posted on Twitter.

The message was accompanied by a short video of the burning car.

Separately, guitarist Kevin “Noodles” Wasserman shared a gallery of photos from the accident on Instagram.

“No one was hurt. Everyone got out of the vehicle unscathed. Unfortunately about half our crew lost all their belongings in the fire, including luggage, computers, & passports. But it could’ve been much worse. The band & I are so thankful & relieved that all involved are OK,” Wasserman captioned the post.

Wasserman added that no one has any idea about what started the fire yet, but “the SUV hit something big & heavy, possibly a lost trailer hitch, and within seconds the vehicle was in flames.”

The veteran punk rock band is currently on the road in support of their 2021 album, Let The Bad Times Roll.
