This blows a bag full of dicks.
Animals As Leaders has revealed that they had a Chevy Blazer, ten guitars, amplifiers, and other equipment stolen in Los Angeles while they were on tour.
That’s not fucking cool.
“We’ve got some pretty terrible news to report. Upon returning home to our house in LA we discovered that we’d been robbed while were out on tour,” the band writes.
“The thieves were able to get away with Javier’s Chevy Blazer and all of the equipment we didn’t have on tour with us. 10 guitars in total,” they said. “This includes many of our one of a kind custom instruments (Stranberg, Rick Toone) as well as amplifiers, PA equipment and personal items.”
The band adds: “This is beyond devastating. We know so many of you have been beyond supportive with Javier’s legal troubles. We may need more of your help now to potentially find some of these one of a kind instruments that may pop up on Ebay, Craigslist, pawn shops, used music stores etc.
“We’re adding an album containing photos and detailed descriptions of the stolen gear to our profile. Please take a look and keep your eyes open for anything that looks close to this stuff. I truly think that with your help we have an exponentially better chance of tracking some of this down.”
Anyone with any information should probably come forward. It’s not like these dudes are huge and just have spare cash to throw around.
