Menzingers get robbed

2012-05-15 by William Lim | 13 Comments
Pennsylvanian punk band The Menzingers were robbed of much of their possessions while at a tour stop in Manchester, UK, at which they had played a show with the legendary The Bouncing Souls.

The band posted on their Twitter:
"Well we were robbed in Manchester. Everything's gone besides our gear. Over $10,000 gone. Any help would be greatly appreciated."

A full statement was submitted on Punknews.org:
"We played a sold out show at The Moho last night in Manchester which ended up being the absolute best show of tour. It was one for the books. [After the show,] everything's going great. We walk around the block to the van and I hear Dave give a quiet "oh fuck". The driver side window was smashed out and three personal bags were stolen [including] my bag with all of our tour money inside it [as well as] $2000 in US in case of an emergency. €5000 Euros, an iPad, 3 iPods, 3 passports, 2 pairs of RayBans, my personal tour journals from the last year and a half which included all of my On the Impossible Past lyrics and all of my memories, a digital camera, prescriptions, It really fucking sucks because it's not your fault and so many - in fact an absurd amount of you want to help out. It's pretty surreal and heartwarming to know we're not alone in this situation."

However, according to the closing statement on Banquet Records' appeal for the band, enough donations have been made to cover most of the losses.

What's more chickenshit than fucking with a man's automobile. I mean, don't fuck with another man's vehicle. You don't do it. It's just against the rules.

You are right... It's a high 3.5... Like a 73/100... It should make my year-end list... I've always stated that.
