Yannick St-Amand's Studio Fire

Producer/Musician Yannick St-Amand (Despised Icon) Loses Home & Studio In Fire, GoFundMe Launched


Yannick St-Amand, former guitarist/sampler for Canadian deathcore outfit Despised Icon, recently lost his home and all of his belongings in a fire. St-Amand, who is a noted producer and touring professional in his own right, is seeking any financial help you can offer via this GoFundMe to get his family and four children back on their feet.

The blaze, which happened the night of March 20th, also claimed St. Amand‘s home recording studio and gear. Despised Icon commented today, March 28th:

“Last week, our beloved Yannick St-Amand, his wife, and four children suffered a great tragedy, losing their entire house and all of their belongings in a devastating fire. Yannick is literally the 7th member of our band. He’s our original guitar player, he has produced all of our albums, plus he’s our sound man when we play live and has done sound on every one of our live shows since our comeback in 2016. He is praised by many after every show for the quality of his work.

Even though Yannick and his family have insurance, there are a lot of things that aren’t covered – like all of his music and sound equipment, IE; how he makes his living. Our love for Yannick and his family is immense and our hearts go out to him beyond measure. Please consider donating to this GoFundMe helping to raise funds to assist in the wake of this great loss.
