The band are currently in the middle of their first European tour
Bloody Knees have launched a GoFundMe page after all their gear was stolen from their van.
The band, who are based in Cambridge and London, are currently in the middle of their first European tour and due to play in Amsterdam on Wednesday (April 11).
“We are completely shocked and deeply saddened to say that on Friday night our tour van was broken into in Mile End, London,” the band posted on Facebook earlier today (April 8). “They stole absolutely everything. Can’t believe that I’m even writing this. We’re devastated.”
They asked fans to keep an eye out for the equipment, which includes guitars, amps, drums, and pedals. You can see the full list of items in the tweet below.
A few hours later, the four-piece issued another update, writing: “We’ve been completely overwhelmed by the amount of people who are showing that they care about this band and about the situation that we’ve been left in.
“Below is a link for a GoFundMe page to help us get back to playing shows as a proper band again,” they continued. “We hate to have to ask for help in this way but we feel like we have no other options. Please, please share and anything that you donate would be HUGELY appreciated.”
The band have estimated the value of all the stolen items at £10,000. They have raised £2,137 on the GoFundMe page at the time of writing. You can donate to the band here.
Bloody Knees released their latest record, the ‘Maybe It’s Easy‘ EP, in October 2017. The band have supported the likes of Wolf Alice, Circa Waves, and Honeyblood in the past, and have appeared at festivals including Live At Leeds, The Great Escape, and Handmade.
