Despite this being a pandemic and there being zero touring going on (from responsible bands), After the Burial still had their gear stolen. Drummer Dan Carle took to Facebook to let fans know that the band's gear and some merchandise has been stolen from Carle's storage space in Virginia, MN. Local police have been notified and Carle has posted a list of the missing gear below.
I mean seriously, during a pandemic? When bands are struggling worse than they normally are? Come on.
"Hey guys, I hope all has been well with everyone! I’ve been informed of some bad news today. I store my band’s touring gear locally in Virginia, MN. Unfortunately someone has broke into where I keep everything and robbed a handful of valuable gear along with After The Burial merchandise.
"A police report has been filed but I just wanted to put the word out to everyone and let you know what items were taken in case anyone spots them around town. These are the items:
- 4 Elation Protron 3K LED Strobes
- 1 Mesa Boogie 6X10 Traditional Bass Cab
- Tons of After The Burial merchandise, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets and cds that were never available online, they were tour exclusive merch.
"If anyone sees any of these items around town, I’d appreciate it so very much if you could message me the details so I can be a better help to the police in tracking down the culprits. The circumstances of the theft make it obvious more than one person was involved. Theft is a very big problem in the area and the most important thing to me is tracking these people down so that it doesn’t happen to anyone else.
"Thank you and I hope to see you all again soon."
