If you listen to Whores. or have seen them play live then you know the intense and cathartic experience the band brings to their fans. For the past six years, Whores. have dedicated themselves to delivering the rock in the only way they know—and that’s to tour relentlessly and convert audiences around the world into fans. Lead guitarist and vocalist Christian Lembach is the driving force behind (and in front of) the band.

Guys, Christian needs our help. I’m a fan, but I also consider Christian my friend and I had to do something.*

Christian’s left knee has a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament and Anterolateral Ligament, which is fancy doctor talk that means he can’t walk and has to have one of his hamstrings removed and used to suture the ligaments together, much less tour and perform at full capacity—let alone without causing further pain and injury.

With great injury comes great expense, and like most musicians and artists Christian doesn’t have medical insurance. When he gave up a traditional career to pursue his dream of leading a hardworking band, he gave up insurance and income security. If you play in a band then you know that without the ability to tour, Christian is unable to earn a living. As you can see in the picture they are playing when he can to make ends meet. However the pain is excruciating and Christian in a chair, while still more energetic than a plethora of bands today, is not 100% Whores.

Already he is looking at medical and physical therapy bills over $40,000.00 to get the much needed surgery that will get him back on the road to recovery and eventually to touring at full speed again.

Please consider chipping in to get this great friend back on his feet and back in the van. He’ll thank you, Taco will thank you, and most importantly, I’ll thank you for being a good person and a patron of the noise rock arts.





*I’m a liar. I selfishly need Whores. back at 100% so I can continue to drag you to their shows and force you to get your mind blown. The quality of your life depends on me doing this.
