Nachdem erst vor wenigen Tagen The Real McKenzies bestohlen wurden, musste nun auch leider Harm’s Way das Horrorszenario einer tourenden Band erfahren. So wurde die Hardcore-Band in Las Vegas unmittelbar vor Tourstart der Total Realiation Invasion-Tour mit Terror, Backtrack, Year Of The Knife und Cany der Trailer geklaut.
Im Anhänger war neben der kompletten Backline auch das gesamte Merchandise, Instrumente und persönliche Gegenstände der einzelnen Bandmitglieder. Ein richtig teurer Verlust also! Ihr Freund Colin Young (Sänger von Twitching Tongues) hat deshalb eine GoFundMe-Kampagne gestartet, bei der man Harm’s Way finanziell unterstützen kann.
Harm’s Way, die erst in diesem Jahr ihr neues Album Posthuman veröffentlichten, planen trotz des immensen Rückschlags die Tour wie geplant zu spielen.
Die Band selbst schrieb dazu auf ihrer Facebook-Seite folgendes:
We suffered a serious blow today. Please read and share if you can.
„Last night, after the show in Las Vegas, our trailer was stolen from the Luxor parking lot. The van and trailer were parked in the over-sized lot, which we have used many times before for both ease of use and supposed security while staying at the hotel. Cameras, lights, thru traffic and frequent security patrols were no deterrent in this situation. The chains to the trailer were cut, the trailer was separated and someone made off with everything. We have coordinated with Luxor security and filed a police report for the theft.
„We plan to continue with the ‚Total Retaliation‘ tour despite this set back, and plan to be up and running again as soon as possible. We are not expecting any kind of hand out for our problem, since it is entirely our problem, but as it currently stands, we are starting over from ground zero. We lost a full back line, guitars/bass, pedals, drums and a fully stocked merch spread to start off the tour with. We have absolutely no equipment to play on, everythiing from this point forward will be an uphill battle against the debt we accumulated overnight which is in excess of over $20,000. There’s just no way we can get anywhere close to where we were without the support of our community.
„Support can come in many ways. We will have merch reprinted and shipped as soon as possible for the shows on this tour. We have a web store that was recently restocked with leftover items, and will soon have new items listed on it. (If you are trying to order something that is out of stock, we will be adding more in the nexts couple of days, so please be patient.) Or you can support us by just coming to the shows, enjoying the amazing bands on this tour, watching our set and reminding us why we do this.
„Anything you can do is greatly appreciated.“
