The band had their van containing all their equipment stolen following their video shoot.
Taken from the band’s Facebook page:
the status no band ever wants to have to put out…
but I’m afraid to say that at some point last night Joe’s work van was stolen from outside his house in Knebworth (Hertfordshire) which contained all of our gear from the video shoot we have been posting about on here and on our personal profiles. We are all still in shock/disbelief that someone could not only take our instruments and means to be able to perform (with a pretty heavy gigging schedule coming up no less!) but also they have taken joe’s livelihood away from him as well… If we could ask everyone to help us out by keeping their eyes and ears open and/or if they know of anything is to get onto the police straight away! Here are some details of the gear that’s been stolen along with a few pictures that i can find at this time

*edited the list slightly to account for a couple items i have remembered/realised were also in the van after trying to find them in my room*
Here is a link to our current Kickstarter we set up to help get back on our feet, please have a gander and keep the shares up, it means so much!
Obviously if you see any of these items being offered for sale then contact the police immediately. But if you are able to help the band out then there is a huge variety of options on the Kickstarter beginning at just £1 .
There is also a special t-shirt available, designed by Very Metal Art to help the band out in their time of need.
