Chimaira loses gear to thieves in Mexico

Chimaira has revealed that a portion of their gear was stolen from a promoter's van in Guadalajara, Mexico. Among the items taken were two guitars and a laptop. Here's the official word:
Greetings from Mexico. Last night in Guadalajara, the promoter's van was broken into while we were at dinner and unfortunately, a few of our instruments were stolen. It did not matter that we were in a well-lit secured parking lot, thieves got away with our stuff. The show must go on and I guess at the end of the day we can share the heartache that so many other artists have had to endure. Maybe someone knows someone who knows someone that can help us find the following: 1 Red PRS Modern Eagle 6 string guitar - Serial - 08141858 1 White Custom PRS 7 string guitar - Serial - 11170325 The red head stock says "Built for Emil Werstler" 1 Roland Microcube Practice Amp 9 Sabian cymbals - in a Gator cymbal case 2 - 13' HHX Hi- Hats Dark 1 - 16' AAXplosion crashes 2 - 18' AAXplosion crashes (1 is cracked) 1 - 22' HH powerbell ride 1 - 12' AA Mini Chinese 1 - 19' AA China 1 Asus laptop with gigantic Chimaira stickers all over it. You can contact us at chimairainfo@gmail.com We appreciate the help.

sucks.

Mexicans are losers ! They need to steal to survive. If I were Chimaira, I never come back in this country


anonymous 1/18/2014 5:21:36 PM

taking two custom shop PRS guitars to mexico (or on tour in the first place) is a real smart idea.

We were robbed! Where???? Mexico. Ah. How...expected.


don_king_lip_froth 1/18/2014 7:01:23 PM

I like how you spiced things up and didn't just say "Chimaira gets robbed in mexico".


anonymous 1/18/2014 7:33:59 PM

welcome to mexico.


anonymous 1/18/2014 7:40:13 PM

You don't know what it's like to be...ROBBED IN MEXICOOOOO!


anonymous 1/18/2014 8:28:08 PM

LOL good luck getting it back. Hopefully the cartel puts this shitty band down. How many years can you beat a dead horse.


anonymous 1/18/2014 10:15:53 PM

That's why I play a guitar made out of travelers checks.


anonymous 1/18/2014 10:16:20 PM

Xibalba did it. Muy bueno


anonymous 1/18/2014 10:17:59 PM

And no one was surprised at all... because beaners.


anonymous 1/18/2014 11:12:06 PM

^all of the above commenters have never been to Mexico.... because they are dickless pussies.


anonymous 1/18/2014 11:29:19 PM

leaving your loaded van unguarded in Detroit or Chicago is one thing. leaving it unguarded in Guadalajara, Mexico is taking it to a whole new level of idiocy.


BULLHEAD 1/19/2014 12:09:50 AM

lol, why the fck would you go to Mexico? don't even bother repoting it....I guarantee it was Mexican police who took it.


anonymous 1/19/2014 12:26:51 AM

1 Asus laptop with gigantic Chimaira stickers all over it.


anonymous 1/19/2014 1:19:55 AM

that sucks that their creed guitars got stolen


anonymous 1/19/2014 1:44:12 AM

Yeah, so many people in Mexico give a fck about your missing gear. Get the fck out, idiots.


anonymous 1/19/2014 4:29:50 AM

^all of the above commenters have never been to Mexico.... because they are dickless pussies. Keep telling yourself that; and while you're at it deny that a mexican took their stuff. After all, that's always my first suspect when something bad happens.


anonymous 1/19/2014 8:12:28 AM

A 19 foot China seems excessive.


anonymous 1/19/2014 8:48:01 AM

Band gets gear stolen in U.S. - "Stupid gays! Who leaves their can unattended?!" Band gets gear stolen in Mexico - "Stupid Mexican spics!"


No_innocent_queefboat 1/19/2014 8:48:42 AM

Eddie Guerrero is shocked


anonymous 1/19/2014 10:46:07 AM

^ Dead, meant to say dead.


anonymous 1/19/2014 11:13:35 AM

fcking racist commenters, man... Your ignorance/racial predisposition only gives other people worse views on your country. Bands get gear stolen all the time, this is the first time I've ever seen lambgoat post anything about something being stolen in my country. I've seen Canada get more attention in that matter than Mexico...


anonymous 1/19/2014 11:18:06 AM

In other news, Menudo announced they're writing a new album.


anonymous 1/19/2014 11:44:02 AM

<<fcking racist commenters, man... >> you don't need the asterisk on lambgoat forums... fck wrong witchew


anonymous 1/19/2014 12:19:01 PM

"Bands get gear stolen all the time, this is the first time I've ever seen lambgoat post anything about something being stolen in my country. " That's because most people don't even bother reporting it or sending out info. It's fcking gone. Bands get jacked in Mexico ALL THE TIME.


anonymous 1/19/2014 12:42:40 PM

Even Mexican promoters tell bands not to leave shit in the van, they tell them not to leave their side, will bring extra security if they have to.


jon 1/19/2014 12:54:54 PM

what the fck is jonny craig doing in mexico?


anonymous 1/19/2014 1:57:05 PM

"¿Dónde están nuestras guitarras?"


anonymous 1/19/2014 3:31:01 PM

Eddie Guerrero did it.


anonymous 1/19/2014 5:11:28 PM

why would any band tour through that third-world shit hole?


anonymous 1/19/2014 5:18:44 PM

Band sucks loosing stuff sucks this sucks


anonymous 1/19/2014 5:28:02 PM

That's what you get for being in Mexico. fckING IDIOTS! Cartel should have kidnapped the whole band. Nobody woould have cared or paid their ransom .


carveyournamein 1/19/2014 5:29:53 PM

Idiot band


anonymous 1/19/2014 5:38:23 PM

Mark Hunter's dreads wept pure hatred


anonymous 1/19/2014 10:45:48 PM

Guacomole Mexico


anonymous 1/20/2014 12:00:29 AM

It was pretty stupid for the thieves to steal instruments and amps when they live in a country without electricity.


anonymous 1/20/2014 5:02:02 AM

Oh what a surprise, more white people whining about their own negligence. "Our stuff was stollen because our van broadcasts our entrepreneurial jobs as band members, feel bad for us." When will bands learn to take the proper precautions to ensure this shit doesn't happen? Morons, expect kickstarter/indiegogo campaign..


anonymous 1/20/2014 5:08:18 AM

¿Puedo interesarte en algunos chicles o este prs personalizado?


Monsiour_Scalamanga 1/20/2014 9:51:29 AM

stupide porcine américaine. c'est ce que vous obtenez pour laisser les choses en face de ces gens sales brunes sans surveillance. en France que Wold ne se produira jamais. nos femmes passent gaz de leurs vagins qui sentent comme rosepetals et sang de licorne. viva la France!


anonymous 1/20/2014 1:03:12 PM

hahaha good for da Mexicans haha they didn't wanna hear them play there shit music so much so as to where they stole there shit legit hahaha


anonymous 1/20/2014 3:27:38 PM

Why the fck would you go to that shithole? The retards don't even understand that no American can understand them when they post in Mexican on Lambgoat.


anonymous 1/20/2014 4:42:13 PM

Some Mexicans are gonna be making a mean mariachi band with all of that stolen equipment

"Oh what a surprise, more white people whining about their own negligence. "Our stuff was stollen because our van broadcasts our entrepreneurial jobs as band members, feel bad for us." When will bands learn to take the proper precautions to ensure this shit doesn't happen?" stupidest comment ever. the band made the littlest fuss and who wouldn't be wanting to get thousands of dollars of stuff back? I'm sure you would have a heart attack once your iPhone/ dildo collection gets swiped.


anonymous 1/21/2014 12:22:44 AM

haha american bands that need to tour on third world countries cuz their economy is shit right now make me laugh!! Welcomo to the third world that you put us through!!


anonymous 1/22/2014 1:25:53 AM

Remember on Wheel of Fortune when they used to go shopping and buy prizes after winning the round? The Acapulco Vacation Resort was a big one back in the day. Mexico is such a shit hole now. It was fun to party in until the mid '90s and now I wouldn't go near it. There's a reason why people are running away from it on an hourly basis.
