Everything Ever's van was broken into last night in New York and the band lost $5000 worth of gear. This is always a bummer, so please learn all the details and find out how to help.
A police report has been filed, as well as a claim with Geico for the damage done to the van itself. We also are in the process of getting the security camera footage that covered right where the van was burglarized. However, we don't have insurance for the gear that was stolen and there's no guarantee that we'll be able to track down whoever did this.

A few people have sent in this video from musician Zane Williams talking about the Dewalt Mobilelock as a must own for musicians traveling with trailers.
Musicians are a target for thieves because we carry a lot of valuable equipment in a van/trailer that takes a professional thief about one minute to steal. Here's a video where I show you the Dewalt Mobilelock, which helped us get almost all our gear back immediately after it was stolen last month while we ate lunch. I'm not getting anything to promote this, I just want more bad guys caught and more bands getting their stuff back. Show this to the bands you know, because sadly it's almost more a matter of "when" their stuff will be...

Matt Pond PA had their stuff stolen last night in Chicago. They have set up a GoFundMe page for donations.
We've been blindsided, robbed in Chicago after one of the best shows of the tour. The worst of the worst made off with our passports, money and computers. Now, I've staggered a good deal in this life. But this time is especially heavy because I truly care about these people. Because we also lost words, pictures, music and privacy that mean more than anything that comes with a price tag. (Although, the price tag of our itemized list comes to $12,000.) If you'd like to help us out, we'd truly appreciate it. Insurance covers some of what's gone, but it's far from all.

Mike Kinsella had his guitars stolen.
A likely scenario, he thinks, is this: The same person or persons who stole the garage door opener from his street-parked car early last week walked down the alley behind his home, clicked said opener until it worked and made off with the axes: a Fender American Telecaster 72′ Custom Classic Player series and Fender American Tele-Sonic.

Sirens and Sailor's van was burglarized the other day and they are taking donations.
Every single dollar we brought with us, every single penny that we have earned over the past month of touring overseas has been stolen. Licenses, credit cards, essential medical supplies, laptops, electronic equipment, even down to our toiletries, GONE. In a matter of minutes, our livelihood has been taken from us. Our dream come true has become the exact opposite.

It's sad that this is becoming a daily thing now, but You Blew It! were burglarized last night in San Antonio, Texas. A slew of items were stolen from the band, so if you have some extra cash, pick up some clothes or some records. Or if you feel extra kind, the band is accepting donations as well. Head to the replies to see the full write up.
Yesterday something awful happened. Our van was robbed as it sat in a heavily trafficked parking lot in the middle of a hot, bright, San Antonio day. The lock on our rear passenger door was pried open, and our gear and personal items tossed into a Grey Chevy Suburban that drove away only minutes before we discovered that the following items were...

Shirts for a Cure were robbed yesterday at Warped Tour.
Yesterday, an unexpected misfortune struck Shirts for a Cure. Our booth on the Warped Tour was robbed of a significant amount of donations we have received throughout our summer fund raising effort. These funds were designated to help with our ongoing financial support of the Community Health Center in Chicago. We do not want to let this organization down so we are reaching out to you, our community of loyal supporters to help us continue to help others. Please help spread the word (repost, retweet, retumble) and donate at: www.syrentha.org/donate Thank you. #fuckcancer

Go Deep had their van stolen in Chicago.
Most of the gear, including the van, I bought from sleeping on my floor for 6 months while renting my room on airbnb and working full time at a Japanese restaurant. Danny incurred about 10k in debt buying recording equipment to finish the Mason Avery (His other project) record over the past 6 years that is now lost, as the four copies of mixes are on harddrives/computers/laptops in the van. Luckily, the Go Deep record is backed up in LA. We are feeling generally sick after pushing so hard to make music happen in our lives. If you want to help out, hit us on the paypal. Everything helps, and it will go directly to getting us back to being...

Driver Friendly had their cameras and laptops stolen last night. Head over to their store and pick something up if you want to help out.

Edit: The band has released a statement:
Hey guys, thanks for the support. As you may have heard our van was broken into outside of the venue Tricky Falls in El Paso, TX last night. Fortunately, none of musical gear was touched but we did lose some personal belongings. The cameras stolen were the ones we used to make all of our music videos and videos for other bands like The Wonder Years. If anyone has information about the following equipment hit us up at driverfband@gmail.com. Thanks again for all the love,

This is the kind of news I hate posting about. Some asshole in Detroit tonight decided to break into Touché Amoré's van and steal all the band member's personal belongings and cash. If we hear of any way for you to donate money or help to the band, we'll let you know. You can always pick up the band's upcoming new record and merch. In the meantime, whomever broke into the band's van is honestly a piece of shit and lower than scum.

Matt’s plaid black and white Hurley backpack, Elliott’s plain blac backpack and Dreds black Under Armor backpack. Contents were brand new MacBooks, iPods, a passport and the flipcam. So unfortunately there will be no tour video from this tour. If anyone has information about our stuff, please let us know. We were parked behind Foufs bar/club in Montreal last night.
