BOSTON (CelebrityAccess) — Alt-country band O'Death has canceled a string of dates on their current tour after being robbed of all of their equipment following an Oct. 30th show at The Echo in Los Angeles.
In a statement released by the band, David Rogers-Berry wrote: "Our van and trailer were stolen, and along with it, all of our equipment, instruments, personal belongings, and merchandise, including hundreds of units of our new album and all of our other records on Vinyl, CD, and some tapes too, along with hundreds of T-shirts, posters, hoodies, flasks, buttons, everything we made for this tour. We also lost a couple of laptops, a camera, and most of us even lost all of the clothes we brought on tour."
The group canceled a series of dates, including Nov 4 in Albuquerque, NM, Nov 6 in Austin, TX, and Nov 7 in Baton Rouge, LA but are back on track for a show at the Middle East in Boston on Nov. 15th. The theft was particularly damaging as many of the group's stolen instruments were vintage and hard to replace.
The band has also set up a GoFundMe account to help with picking up the pieces after the theft and if you are in a position to help out, it is worth considering.
"We hate to ask for handouts, but we know that a lot of our supporters recognize and understand the path we are on – we don't make much money doing what we do – we do it because connecting with people through music is our lives," David Rogers-Berry said.
