ANIMALS AS LEADERS' Gear Stolen; Band Asks Fans To Keep A Lookout
- Posted by RobInjection on June 18, 2012
Some shitty news to kick off the week. Animals As Leaders, fresh off their bullshit court date, returned home from their tour with Thrice to find that they had been robbed. All of their gear that they didn't bring with them (their amps, their one-of-a-kind guitars) was gone. The band is asking for fans to keep a lookout at pawn shops and Ebay for the gear. They have created this photo gallery with photos of the stolen items. Here is the message the band sent out to their fans regarding the issue:
We've got some pretty terrible news to report. Upon returning home to our house in LA we discovered that we'd been robbed while were out on tour. The thieves were able to get away with Javier's Chevy Blazer and all of the equipment we didn't have on tour with us. 10 guitars in total. This includes many of our one of a kind custom instruments (Stranberg,Rick Toone ) as well as amplifiers, PA equipment and personal items.
This is beyond devastating. We know so many of you have been beyond supportive with Javier's legal troubles. We may need more of your help now to potentially find some of these one of a kind instruments that may pop up on Ebay, Craigslist, pawn shops, used music stores etc.
We're adding an album containing photos and detailed descriptions of the stolen gear to our profile. Please take a look and keep your eyes open for anything that looks close to this stuff. I truly think that with your help we have an exponentially better chance of tracking some of this down.
If anyone has any information about any of this gear, please contact us at email@example.com. Please, keep it to messages containing leads on the stolen gear. Thanks!
