First off, over the weekend we met our goal on our GoFundMe page which blows our minds. Thank you to every single one of you who has supported us and reached out with kind words. We are gearing up for this European run of shows now and are very excited to get back out there. We also wanted to post some photos of some of our more rare and recognizable items that were stolen, along with our van. Feel free to share, post, tweet, etc. San Francisco has a pathetic 1.7% recovery / arrest rate for thefts and break ins, its very unlikely the police will be much help. Be careful out there. Even Snoop Dogg was robbed in San Fran.

It means the world to us. https://www.gofundme.com/preoccupationsgearfund

Yesterday was a really tough one, basically everything we own and have worked towards was taken from us. Right as we were hitting our stride, making best friends in the world with Moaning and together really crushing these shows. It was the second time in a week we were robbed, violated and sent into a frenzy of last min running around trying to replace our gear with whatever we could find/afford before the show. As it sunk in yesterday, the time line and logistics, as well as financially it seemed literally impossible for us to continue this run. HOWEVER as devastating as it was it didn't take long for the support of our amazing friends and fans to kick in. That itself was also overwhelming but really just made it clear that this is just a set back. Flegel has the P Bass. He was spooning it in the hotel room and now keeps it handcuffed to his right wrist. We have come to L.A. in an attempt to blow the roof off The Echo with the help of friends and Moaning and sharing gear. The rest of the tour is still feeling up in the air, we are taking each day in stride but want to publicly announce a go fund me has been set up in response to so many amazing people offering donations we love you already and will forever. Annnnd the bounty is indeed and very much so forever gnar. <3 https://www.gofundme.com/preoccupationsgearfund
