With some of the country’s greatest biodiversity and recreation, Indiana Dunes National Park packs a punch.
Both members of Liverpool band Her's have passed away after being involved in a car accident while on tour in America, the group's label has confirmed.
Stephen Fitzpatrick and Audun Laading were both killed in the crash along with their tour manager Trevor Englebrektson while on their way to a gig in Santa Ana, California on Wednesday (March 27).
The duo's label, Hit or Heist, confirmed the news on Facebook, writing, "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. To say they were close would be an underestimation of a friendship that was genuinely beautiful to witness; they loved one another like brothers."

The suspect in the shooting had a license to carry the types of guns used in deadly attacks. According to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, investigators at the scene of the shootings that left 49 dead found five guns allegedly used by the primary suspect: Two semi-automatic weapons, two shotguns and a lever-action firearm. • A live video that appeared to be of one of the shootings was streamed on Facebook and uploaded to other sites like Twitter and YouTube, raising questions about the role social media plays in radicalization.
"Musically, Her’s were astonishing," they continued. "An aptitude for melody, fun, and entertainment combined with a complexity that was as sophisticated as it was stylish. They were in America playing to thousands of adoring fans. Fans they made a point of meeting and spending time with, such was their passion and humbleness. 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 label also offered their thoughts and prayers to the families of Fitzpatrick, Laading and Englebrektson and asked that fans "please respect their privacy at this extremely difficult time."
Her's released their debut album, Invitation to Her's, last year. Read their label's full statement below.
