The Menzingers Robbed In Manchester

Posted by - 08:26 PM on 05/02/12
Update: A blog post from the band including ways to help can be read here.

The Menzingers were robbed last night in Manchester. Everything besides the band's gear is gone, over $10,000 worth of property. We're reaching out to the band to see if they're opening a PayPal donation account or a Kickstarter or anything like that.

Do they mean literally robbed like "Give me all your shit or I'll shoot you"?

Fucking sucks. Ready and willing to donate a few bucks if they start a Kickstarter or something.

Man that's terrible. I'll definitely buy some extra merch at the bouncing souls show in July in addition to donating if they set something up.

Jesus, if those thieves had listened to the Menzinger's most recent album...they would've left their shit alone. "Whoa, this album is fucking amazing. They need to play this live. Let's leave it alone." I envision something like that. But seriously, fuck whoever did this.
