Ulcerate Robbed in NYC

2012-05-20 by Alex Newton | 89 Comments
Technical death metal band Ulcerate had their van ransacked last night after their show in New York City. A statement on the band's facebook page reads,

"We had our van broken into in New York last night at our accom. We've lost all our guitar gear (preamps, effects units), some drum equipment, stage banner and all of Svart Crown's merch was also ripped off. We're going to keep going but this is a [expletive] terrible start. We had phenomenal shows in Philadelphia and NYC last night so this is an absolute kick in the [expletive] teeth."

In response, fans have pledged donations and support at tonight's show in Boston and other tour dates.

seem to remember this happening to Portugal. The Man a few months ago in Chicago except it was their entire van! It got so much internet buzz they found the van like two days later and half the equipment.

Hopefully they recover everything that was missing or at least some of it. Cheers for the perseverance!
