Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (05/15/10)
Torche were robbed last night in Chicago. Due to passports being stolen, the band will not be playing the upcoming Canadian dates on their tour with Coheed and Cambria and Circa Survive.

StatementLast night in Chicago our van got broken into and a bunch of our equipment got stolen. Among the stolen equipment was both of Jon's bass guitars (custom First Act and custom Electrical Guitar Company), our new guitar player's custom guitar, Steve's black Les Paul custom, Steve and Jon's pedal boards, all our guitar stands, bags of cables and strings, and a bunch of personal bags that included check books, passports, IDs, etc."

Since 3 out of the 5 of us lost our passports, we won't be able to play our shows in Canada now on May 18th and 19th. We're trying to find anyone interested in setting up last minute house shows/small bar shows around the Northeast to try and make some extra money. The total of all our shit that got ripped off easily exceeds $10,000 and we just borrowed money to put a down payment on a new van before this trip, so we're in a bad situation right now.

If anyone thinks they might be able to help us out with shows in the Northeast on May 18th, 19th, and 20th, it would be greatly appreciated!

Terrible, absolutely astonishing how this has become the norm for bands on tour.
Also astonishing is the amount of subhumans who are allowed to use the internet and post on Lambgoat. Not my first time being exposed to their shit, but I can't begin to get used to how stupid those guys are.

It's really unfortunate this happened. There has to be a better way to lock up trailers and vans or at least have someone sleeping in the van.

Damn, that really sucks. Way too many of these horror stories being posted lately, I feel so bad for the bands.

Anyone know if there are going to be replacement openers for the two Canadian dates?
