NEWS: Benefit Show Announced In Aid Of The Skints

OFFICIAL BAND STATEMENT – “On the morning of Saturday 5th May, our van was taken outside the home of one of our members in Woodford Green, Essex. It contained everything, and that includes hundreds of pounds worth of Marcia’s stage clothes and shoes, not to mention all of our tour merchandise which is often our only source of income. We strongly urge anyone who reads this to be on the lookout for a White Mercedes Sprinter, Reg HT03 FUD. And please keep checking our facebook page for details, we will release a list of the instruments inside to print out and give to your local music shops and cash converters so they will know if the culprits try to sell any of it. This equipment was our whole lives. We worked for 5 years to collect what we had and the emotional attachment to our instruments is what makes this so difficult. But we won’t be cancelling ANY gigs. We always find a way to play. Please check our facebook and twitter pages for all our tour dates and updates – come along and support, we need it more than ever!
