In a complete dick move, someone or someones in New York have robbed New Zealand death metal band Ulcerate‘s van. Now this is their first time touring the states AND only two days into the tour. Wow does that really suck.
The band has released a statement on the event that you can read right here.
Also, who the hell steals a stage banner and merch?!?
Ulcerate recently signed with Relapse Records and are scheduled to enter the studio in the fall of 2012.
Ulcerate had this to say about the robbery:
“We had our van broken into in New York last night at our accom. We’ve lost all our guitar gear (preamps, effects units), some drum equipment, stage banner and all of Svart Crown’s merch was also ripped off. We’re going to keep going but this is a fucking terrible start. We had phenomenal shows in Philadelphia and NYC last night so this is an absolute kick in the fucking teeth.”
