Decrepit Birth robbed in San Francisco

Just a few days after their touring van caught fire and had to be replaced temporarily with a rental van, Decrepit Birth had said rental van broken into. The band's cash, laptops, phones, passports, and IDs were stolen. As a result, the group has dropped off their current tour with Obituary et al. Here's the official word:
"More bad energy has come to us in the form of a theft last night night in San Francisco. Our rental van had the side window broken out and all of our personal bags with cash, laptop computers, cell phones, passports, and id's were stolen. This was a major blow to go along with our van catching on fire in Canada and having to leave it there to be junked. At this point we will have to regretfully drop from the last few days of tour. The costs are overwhelming at this point, and to continue on would dig an even deeper hole of debt for the band, which we can't afford. We had a great time touring with our brothers in Obituary, Broken Hope, Jungle Rot, and Encrust. These bands we're beyond awesome to us during the past week of issues we've gone through. Thanks to all the fans for coming out and making this such a great tour aside from the bullshit. We gave it our all every night for you, our fans. We're down but not out....

Singer already blends in with the homeless people, so things won't be too bad.

TMZ reports that Hollywood Undead Robbed Decrepit Birth in San Francisco. Reports say Hollywood Undead were wearing big pink dildos on their heads as to blend in with the San Fran crowd.

anonymous 9/28/2012 12:22:06 PM

Damn. I've read too many of these stories this year. Why don't people lock their vans better - or lock their belongings in a secondary secured location in the van? fck man - buy a welder and make some shit!! Bummed on this. Santa Cruz represent!

anonymous 9/28/2012 12:26:03 PM

Regardless if you like them or not that just sucks to be robbed.

anonymous 9/28/2012 2:30:12 PM

quick question. where were you while your van was robbed? i mean why didn't you have your stuf with you? only acceptable answer, "we were in a restaurant" anything else is your own fault.
