BAND CAUGHT IN SECOND MAJOR DISASTER IN 16 DAYS

Talk about a case of bad timing.

California hard rock band High On Fire was on tour and set to perform in Tokyo, Japan on Friday when the powerful earthquake and resulting tsunami struck off the island nation's shore, collapsing buildings, causing  widespread fires and unleashing walls of water up to 8 meters high.

The popular U.S. group was unharmed, but shaken after surviving its second natural disaster in sixteen days; the band was also abroad in Christchurch, New Zealand during the 6.3-magnitude earthquake that rocked the country February 22, the country's deadliest natural disaster in 80 years.
