Pelican Guitarist Trevor de Brauw’s House Was Robbed While the Band Was in the Studio
Post-rock heroes Pelican announced on Tuesday that they had entered the studio to record a new album, their first since Forever Becoming in 2013. Unfortunately that high was short lived: guitarist Trevor de Brauw’s home was robbed while the band was laying down tracks.
Trevor hasn’t revealed the extent of his financial losses or what specifically was stolen, but even in the best of scenarios the feeling of having one’s home invaded and violated is extremely unsettling and scary. Instead of launching a crowdfunding campaign, de Brauw — who is also a music publicist we at MetalSucks have worked with closely for years, and is an all-around super rad fella — has put up some items from his record collection on Discogs.com in an effort to recoup some cash. There are some EXCELLENT selections in there — a quick browse shows titles by Magrudergrind, Morbid Angel and D.R.I., amongst some Pelican items — so please take a look right here and help support Trevor if you can.
Here’s to hoping Trevor can get back on his feet ASAP. Really looking forward to hearing new Pelican, too!
Good morning! My house was robbed last night and my insurance has a $1000 deductible. Would love if you’d consider buying some records from me to help us recover our stuff https://t.co/iQWMgQmrWT
