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...

Foxing's entire trailer was stolen last night as the band slept. You can read their statement in the replies, as well as purchase something or make a donation via Paypal to help the band.

Frank Turner's in-ear monitors were stolen last night.
The show in Ottawa last night was a blast, thanks to everyone who came down. Sad to say, after the show I left my in-ear monitor ear pieces in the dressing room, went off to meet people and hang out, and when I came back they were gone. No one at the venue or on my crew knows where they got to. They're moulded for me, so no use to anyone else; they're far from cheap and difficult to replace; and they're pretty essential to our current technical stage set up. There's a picture of them below. I have no idea what might have happened, and I don't particularly care, I'm just desperate to get them back. If anyone has them or knows where they...

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.

Mineral had their van broken into in St. Louis last night.
After our show this evening in St Louis at the Firebird we went to celebrate Chrisí birthday by going bowling at Flamingo Bowl. Shortly after 1am our van was broken into and all of our belongings were stolen. Thousands and thousands of dollars in personal electronics, a cash box with several shows worth of merch sales, clothing, invaluable intellectual property, and many many other items. Our rear cargo hold with most of the gear was thankfully left safe. The van was locked, we specifically paid to park in a well lit lot with an attendant. When we came out 30 min later, attendant was gone, locks popped off, and belongings gone....
