Decrepit Birth's Rental Van Broken Into, Equipment Stolen

After the band's van caught fire while on tour earlier this week, Decrepit Birth has now issued the following statement about having equipment and personal items stolen from the replacement rental van:

"More bad energy has come to us in the form of a theft last night night in San Francisco. Our rental van had the side window broken out and all of our personal bags with cash, laptop computers, cell phones, passports, and id's were stolen.

"This was a major blow to go along with our van catching on fire in Canada and having to leave it there to be junked. At this point we will have to regretfully drop from the last few days of tour. The costs are overwhelming at this point, and to continue on would dig an even deeper hole of debt for the band, which we can't afford.

"We had a great time touring with our brothers in Obituary, Broken Hope, Jungle Rot, and Encrust. These bands were beyond awesome to us during the past week of issues we've gone through.

"Thanks to all the fans for coming out and making this such a great tour aside from the bullshit. We gave it our all every night for you, our fans. We're down but not out....

"If you feel like donating to our new van fund, you can send your donation via Paypal to decrepitbirth@msn.com. We really appreciate that our fans have reached out to us and offered to help, you guys are the best!"

Nuclear Blast Records also added: "If anyone in San Francisco has any information that can help lead to the arrest of the assholes who broke into Decrepit Birth's van and stole all their things, please contact your local police station with any tips! These guys have been through enough already! Any help is much appreciated."
