The Locust can be counted as the latest band to fall victim to van robbery. The bug–eyed experimental hardcore band had their van broken into on November 25 in St. Louis. According to the band's sometimes label Three One G.
The thieves stole a large amount of personal possessions. Including 3 computers, phone charges, money, and anything else you might think of. As if being a musician did not already have enough hard ships, not only was this an invasion of privacy, but many of the items stolen are irreplaceable due to financial and other reasons. As a band the locust have given to the world what can never be re–paid, and it's terrible that they have to be faced with this dilemma. Not only did they suffer a loss of personal items, but some things were key to their professional and financial means of living.
Three One G has established a relief fund where fans can donate money to help get The Locust back on their feet.
The Locust are currently on tour in support of their 2007 release New Erections.
