If you’re in a metal / hardcore band, do not go to Oakland, CA. They robbin’ everybody.
Oakland has been pillaging tour vans left and right this week. First off, Rotting Out and No Bragging Rights were robbed while playing Today’s Mixtape Fest. Now reports have come in that As Blood Runs Black had their laptops, cameras, luggage, etc stolen. You can read the band’s official press release below.
“After last nights recording session as some of us were getting ready to head home and others to another hotel we walked across the street to check out a show at the Oakland Metro for about an hour and when we came out the vehicle we been traveling in was broken into. Some asshole stole all our laptops, hard drives, cameras, iPad, and luggage. Who steals dirty underwear?!? We did what any normal person would do and hid everything from eye site, the windows were tinted, and there was a security guard in the parking lot when we went inside.
Surprisingly they left the guitars which we are using today to track the remainder of the album. We find it odd that our vehicle was the only one singled out and this happened in an open parking lot with people around with quite a bit of stuff stolen. If you or someone you know was at the Emmure Volumes show last night in Oakland and hear or know of anything please get in contact. Doing our best to finish the remainder of the album with what wasn’t taken. GROUND ZERO ?#?cursed?”
Now let us listen to music from all the afflicted.
