That's a shame especially because of what they had to go through to get over here to tour. Hopefully then can keep on keeping on.

Thank you!

And glad they got the van back, but ..... I dunno, its a weird story -- thieves didn't steal any equipment, but then "replaced" the other stolen goods with crack pipes? Hahaha. Sucks that Beat Union had to cancel the shows!!

this was a terrible event but in the end, it was one of the most interesting stories. Edmonton is a very cool part of Canada and the kids are amazing, so im sure they were treated very well. Those dudes are nice as hell too, met them at Johnnys Saloon in Huntington

bands keep getting their shit stolen. some one or some company needs to invent some type of theft deterrent device that is affordable for people with low-income (bands).

Ive mentioned this before, and I would suggest bands hop on it, I dont want to sound hypocritical because we haven't bought ours yet but you can buy "the boot" it attaches to your tires and makes it IMPOSSIBLE to drive. Now you just have to make sure your items are not left in vans over night and we have separated our trailer with dividers and we always park with the door to the wall so no one can get in. Its all about preventative measures.
