Oh man - this is happening way too often to bands these days. The Menzingers were robbed while on tour in Manchester, England. Here’s part of what Greg Barnett posted, and you can read the rest of his message at their Tumblr:
“The driver side window was smashed out and 3 personal bags were stolen. Unfortunately my bag was stolen with all of our tour money inside it. To top it off, we brought around $2000 in US cash with us in case of an emergency. So let’s see €5000 Euros, an iPad, 3 iPods, 3 passports, 2 pairs of raybans (I know, I know they’re super expensive but they make you look pretty cool), my personal tour journals from the last year and a half which included all of my “On the Impossible Past” lyrics and all of my god damn memories, a digital camera, prescriptions, blah blah blah. This sucks. It really fucking sucks…”
This is obviously a shitty situation. If you’d like to help the guys out, you can make a donation HERE or at their PayPal account (MenzingersSkrilla@gmail.com). We’re sure that they’d greatly appreciate it.
