Full of Hell’s Van Stolen, All Gear and Merch Gone
Full of Hell’s van and trailer were stolen on the night of Thursday, November 28, while the band slept just outside Atlanta, GA. All of their gear and merch, as well as most of their clothing, were stolen. The band had been scheduled to perform on Friday, November 29 at The Masquerade as part of their tour with Cattle Decapitation and Atheist.
Posting on Facebook, the band reported:
“Last night our entire van was stolen with all of our gear, merch and even most of our clothing. We’ve been touring for 10 years and have been lucky enough to have never been robbed before. There have been close calls but never anything like this. I feel completely crushed to lose all of the gear we spent years building and tinkering with along with our trustworthy van. I also feel completely ashamed to ask for anything from you guys but a friend has made us a gofundme to possibly help us rebuild. Anyone that knows us know that we’ve been gunning at 100% since we started but right now we are feeling very defeated. We are going to be dropping the rest of the dates with Cattle Decapitation, which might be the most crushing thing of all, because we never cancel tours. I’m just at a loss for words right now. We are feeling very low. Check this out if you want to. Thank you.”
You can donate to a GoFundMe to help the band get back on their feet right here. As of press time fans have contributed a remarkable $37,000, an incredible rally of support from the metal community. While that likely won’t cover the entirety lost between their van, trailer, gear, merch, personal belongings and missed revenue from canceled shows, here’s to hoping it helps make the blow much more bearable.
