Black Crown Initiate just wrapped up its tour with Ne Obliviscaris and Starkill, and will be headed over to Europe in about a month to continue on touring with Veil Of Maya, Born Of Osiris, and Volumes. Unfortunately, between the band's last date in California and its trip home to Pennsylvania, their van was burglarized and stripped of the member's personal belongings.
Here's what Black Crown Initiate had to say below, and here's the correct link to the Generosity/IndieGoGo fund, since the one below is a broken link.
Dan Presland, drummer for Ne Obliviscaris, set up the IndieGoGo for the band, and tells their story below as well.
I am setting up this fundraiser for my friends in the band Black Crown Initiate. I have literally just walked in the door to my home in Australia after 22 hours of transit, to get an inbox from the guys they have been robbed during their 3,000 miles + journey back home from tour with us (they are still not even home as I type this). We have known these guys for just over a month, and we have already became very good friends. We are all heartbroken and devastated.
They have lost many personal belongings, including their laptops. They have also had CASH stolen that they made on this grueling tour with us. One of the big problems is their passports have been stolen too. They are headed to Europe in 3 weeks. This is a disaster for any touring band. Please help the guys out in any way you can to help them get back on their feet. It will be incredibly expensive to replace passports on such notice, not to mention all the earnings they lost on tour. No amount of cash can replace your own laptop with tabs, photos, spreadheets and tour info etc, but we can certainly try.
Black Crown Initiate commented on the funding effort, stating their PayPal account email is [email protected], should you not be comfortable donating to the IndieGoGo.
