The Menzingers Robbed In Manchester
Update: A blog post from the band including ways to help can be read here.

The Menzingers were robbed last night in Manchester. Everything besides the band's gear is gone, over $10,000 worth of property. We're reaching out to the band to see if they're opening a PayPal donation account or a Kickstarter or anything like that.

So fucking shitty.

Do they mean literally robbed like "Give me all your shit or I'll shoot you"?

Fucking sucks. Ready and willing to donate a few bucks if they start a Kickstarter or something.

Lots of this going around lately. Really a shame

Probably was "burglarized"....but I copied from the tweet.

Either way, who cares, super shitty for this to happen to a bunch of awesome people.

will donate, hope they get something going

That really blows. I like these guys, I'll donate when they start something for sure.

Man that's terrible. I'll definitely buy some extra merch at the bouncing souls show in July in addition to donating if they set something up.

Jesus, if those thieves had listened to the Menzinger's most recent album...they would've left their shit alone. "Whoa, this album is fucking amazing. They need to play this live. Let's leave it alone." I envision something like that. But seriously, fuck whoever did this.

Absolute suck. These dudes are awesome, hope they can get their stuff/money back. Unreal.

kazuma_ootaro28 05/02/12 08:13 PM

Down to donate, love their new album
