California death metal band Decrepit Birth have had a spell of bad luck, the band’s tour bus caught on fire and then the van they rented to replace the original was broken into. This has forced the Decrepit Birth’s hand and due to financial reasons they will no longer be able to continue the tour with Obituary. Honestly, this just straight up sucks and my heart goes out to these guys. There is a paypal account you can send donations to for the band to get a new van after the jump and if you have five spare bucks I am sure these guys would appreciate it.
You can read the bands statement here.
“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 we’re 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….
