Items stolen from PEARS' van

Contributed by DesertBurst92. Posted by johng on Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 10:00 AM (EDT)
PEARS Last night on their way to their Gainesville, Florida show with Teenage Bottlerocket, PEARS’ van was broken into and robbed. The band stated:

Hey Everyone, we have some very NOT RAD news. On our way from our Fayetteville, NC show with Teenage Bottlerocket to the Gainseville, FL show our van was completely robbed. Two of the van’s windows were completely shattered. What can we say? The money that was stolen is really just a drop in the bucket, nay, the ocean, of money that we owe to Ryan Young from Off With Their Heads for not only pressing our record, but purchasing every copy.

We’re scrambling trying to figure things out right now. We’re all super pissed that all of our stuff was taken. We have called the cops and they are beginning to look into our case.

We REALLY want out gear back so we can keep this tour going. Anything you can do to help is awesome. More updates will be posted ASAP!
THANK YOU!

Menzingers van burglarized

Posted by armando on Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 9:30 AM (EDT)
The Menzingers Early this morning, the Menzingers van was burglarized. The band had just wrapped up a short run of headlining dates last night and were in North Carolina when the robbery occurred. Thankfully tour manager Scott Bell was able to briefly apprehend the individual in the midst of the crime. While nothing was stolen due to Bell's involvement the suspect was able to escape after a brief encounter.

Sadly this is not the first time the band has faced a break in as they have had not one but two in the past. We have a quote from guitarist/vocalist Tom May below.

Thieves break into Teenage Bottlerocket's van

Contributed by misterspike. Posted by britt on Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 9:00 AM (EDT)
Teenage Bottlerocket Late last night, Teenage Bottlerocket's van was robbed outside of Savannah, GA. The band, currently on tour with PEARS, were staying overnight after a show in Fayetteville, NC with a show planned in Gainesville, FL the next night. Guitarist/vocalist Ray Carlisle stated:

“We decided to crash at this fleabag hotel on the way to see all our Fest buddies in Gainesville and woke up to find our trailer was missing as well as our front van windows smashed. Not only have we lost a few thousand in merch, all our personalized TBR Skull equipment is gone, as well as Vito, our trusty velour dashboard skull bobblehead, which has seen us through the high times and low times. We are at the police station (Upping the Punx!) filling out reports and working on making it to Loosey’s tonight. BOTTLEROCKET!”

Teenage Bottlerocket’s most recent album, Tales From Wyoming, was released yesterday. In a bit of goodwill, several bands, most notably Crash and Attack and Old Man Markley, condemned the break-in and offered to help get TBR back on their feet. The status of their show at Loosey’s in Gainesville, FL with PEARS is unknown at this time.

Image Adam E. here with four new reviews. Today on the way to work I was rear-ended by a fellow commuter. He told me that it was the fault of his GPS, which presumably told him to accelerate while everyone else was stopped. I know you're all concerned, but worry not, I'm unhurt.
