HARM'S WAY Robbed of Over $20,000 Worth of Gear & Merch in Las Vegas
Harm's Way are really feeling it right now. After the band's show Thursday night (September 27th) in Las Vegas, the band's trailer has gone missing, which included all of their gear and merch, totaling over $20,000 in value.
The band is currently in the midst of a tour with Terror, Backtrack, Year of the Knife and Candy. They have vowed to continue. Friends of the band have set up a crowdfunding campaign, which as of this writing is at nearly $12,000. If you have the means to donate, you may do so here. The band offered this message, explaining the situation:
“Last night, after the show in Las Vegas, our trailer was stolen from the Luxor parking lot. The van and trailer were parked in the over-sized lot, which we have used many times before for both ease of use and supposed security while staying at the hotel. Cameras, lights, thru traffic and frequent security patrols were no deterrent in this situation. The chains to the trailer were cut, the trailer was separated and someone made off with everything. We have coordinated with Luxor security and filed a police report for the theft.
“We plan to continue with the TOTAL RETALIATION tour despite this set back, and plan to be up and running again as soon as possible. We are not expecting any kind of hand out for our problem, since it is entirely our problem, but as it currently stands, we are starting over from ground zero. We lost a full back line, guitars/bass, pedals, drums and a fully stocked merch spread to start off the tour with. We have absolutely no equipment to play on, everything from this point forward will be an uphill battle against the debt we accumulated overnight which is in excess of over $20,000.
“There’s just no way we can get anywhere close to where we were without the support of our community. Support can come in many ways. We will have merch reprinted and shipped as soon as possible for the shows on this tour. We have a web store that was recently restocked with leftover items, and will soon have new items listed on it. (If you are trying to order something that is out of stock, we will be adding more in the next couple of days so please be patient) Or you can support us by just coming to the shows, enjoying the amazing bands on this tour, watching our set and reminding us why we do this.
“Anything you can do is great appreciated.
