Fleshgod Apocalypse Robbed of All Their Gear in Sweden
This never gets any easier to report every time it happens to a metal band: Fleshgod Apocalypse were robbed last night (April 2nd) after their show at Sticky Fingers in Gothenburg, Sweden.
This particular theft was more devastating than most, with nearly ALL of the band’s possession taken by the thieves: the band’s instruments, live production gear, merch, personal belongings and more. The remaining four shows of their tour — in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Brasov and Mannheim — have been canceled as a result.
The band hasn’t launched a fundraiser but is instead encouraging fans to buy merchandise from their official shop to help recoup the costs of what’s been lost, vowing to return as soon as possible.
Fleshgod Apocalypse announced the most unfortunate news via Facebook earlier today along with a video, which you can watch below:
“IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ AND SHARE!
“Hello friends, we’re sorry to inform you that we’ll not be able to make it for the last four shows of this tour: Copenhagen, Hamburg, Brasov and Mannheim.
“Last night some miserable pieces of shit broke into our van and stole our full live rig, production tools and stage props, drums gear, our signature custom-made guitars and bass (by Rufini Guitars), merchandise and various spare parts. Please let us know if you spot one of those turds trying to resell our stuff online.
“Check out these pics:
“If you want to help, you can give us a hand by buying some merchandise from our store (shop.fleshgodapocalypse.com).
“This is a tough day for us, but we’re stubborn like a bull and we’ll keep working harder than before, which is the only way we know to overcome adversities.
Old-school we are, old-school we’ll die.
“Please spread the word and thanks so much for your support!”
