For The Fallen Dreams robbed in St. Louis

Friday, October 3, 2014 7:16 AM PT / 14,384 views
For The Fallen Dreams were the latest victims of theft in St. Louis, MO last night as the band was in town to perform at the venue Fubar. Details have yet to be released, but the group's trailer was apparently destroyed, while their money, computers, and passports were stolen. Favorite Weapon, who were playing the same show as FTFD last night, were also robbed:
"Last night in St. Louis, our van was broken into and robbed. We lost a couple of passports, electronics, toiletries, and a few personal belongings of sentimental value that can't be replaced. Our friends in For the Fallen Dreams were robbed also. A lot of their personal belongings, as well as computers, a substantial amount of money, and all of their passports are gone. If you can, in any way whatsoever, please help them out. They have been through so much on this tour already and this is just another devastating blow. If you come out to this tour, please buy some merch from them or even donate what you can. They are all really good guys and didn't deserve this at all. Thanks for everyone's support and concerns."
You may recall that Traitors were robbed at the same venue in August. In light of For The Fallen Dreams' problems, the band had the following to say:
"Stay clear from this terrible venue as over 10 bands have been robbed in the last year (3 in the last 2 months). (Promoter/owner refuses to add any security or even cameras to the venue or 'security lot' even after all the robberies which leads us to believe it might be an inside job so stay clear if you are a touring band)."

Inside job


anonymous 10/3/2014 7:29:00 AM

Probably a long term community effort to keep shit metalcore out of their city. Bravo


anonymous 10/3/2014 7:32:24 AM

yeesh..keep someone near the van or park in a pay lot. Its not hard folks


anonymous 10/3/2014 7:35:15 AM

Probably a long term community effort to keep shit metalcore out of their city. Bravo ^^Haha, yes!


anonymous 10/3/2014 7:40:34 AM

FTFD is from Detroit...I would assume they're not idiots when it comes to stuff like this. This can't be some random ninja hobo robbing all these bands.


anonymous 10/3/2014 7:49:12 AM

If they knew this happened regularly... why the fck didn't they get part of their touring crew to sit in the van until the show had finished?


anonymous 10/3/2014 8:12:50 AM

that venue is a scam


anonymous 10/3/2014 8:13:27 AM

I live in St.Louis. This is pretty hilarious that these bands keep getting their shit ganked.


anonymous 10/3/2014 8:18:32 AM

Honestly, it would seem like bands learn this lesson. Dudes from Traitors honestly have a point, the first one being don't tour in a $45,000 bus if you can't afford the tires for it... I wouldnt be at all surprised if it was inside work.


anonymous 10/3/2014 8:32:24 AM

These bands have worked very very hard to get were they are and to do the things they have done. They don't deserve any of this whether you like the music they play our not. They're doing more with there lives then most of you his probably are. Show some respect


anonymous 10/3/2014 8:35:50 AM

fck that venue the owner is a scam artist piece of shit stealing from bands close that venue for good it's worthless


anonymous 10/3/2014 8:37:32 AM

i live in st louis and the staff at that venue would never do such things... so to scream "inside job" rather than take personal accountability for your possessions by keeping someone by the vehicles at all times, is just immature.


anonymous 10/3/2014 9:05:52 AM

I've played here at least 20 different times and have never had a problem. The Fubar is one of the best venues in the Midwest, bands get robbed everywhere you can't blame the venue/promoter for some crack head stealing your shit.


anonymous 10/3/2014 9:07:39 AM

"i live in st louis and the staff at that venue would never do such things... so to scream "inside job" rather than take personal accountability for your possessions by keeping someone by the vehicles at all times, is just immature." yes because bands touring on the level of for the fallen dreams can for sure afford private security or tour crew you moron


anonymous 10/3/2014 9:11:09 AM

ive got sub par equip for sale, hit me up


anonymous 10/3/2014 9:17:35 AM

Jim Hocking will be complaining for weeks.

Shapist was also robbed their. Someone broke into Griffins car, and stole his 7 string guitar about a week or two ago.


anonymous 10/3/2014 9:51:36 AM

Thankfully traitors had the courage to tour without their PS3


anonymous 10/3/2014 9:55:34 AM

Someone needs to get sued! The venue obviously.


anonymous 10/3/2014 9:56:45 AM

I bet mom was mad her computer got stolen


anonymous 10/3/2014 9:57:21 AM

No band deserves to have this done to them. That being said, you'd think this has happened enough especially at that venue to prompt bands to think about having someone stay with the gear or nearby? WTF


anonymous 10/3/2014 9:59:50 AM

This morning Fubar posted a job opening for and outside security person to watch the trailers until load outs are done.


anonymous 10/3/2014 10:04:59 AM

"FTFD is from Detroit...I would assume they're not idiots when it comes to stuff like this. This can't be some random ninja hobo robbing all these bands." Ftfd is most definitely NOT from Detroit.


anonymous 10/3/2014 10:05:54 AM

They should take this as a sign that they should quit.


anonymous 10/3/2014 10:07:17 AM

Is this 2008 when this band was relevant?


anonymous 10/3/2014 10:14:36 AM

im not surprised i played here twice on tour during my musical career, one of the worst places ive ever played but the crowd was amazing. owner is a dick and looks strung out on heroin, but so does half of the people in the city.


anonymous 10/3/2014 10:19:32 AM

As a former venue owner and one that did tons of national touring acts, we valued our talent and fanbase. It makes no sense that there isnt better secirity. I am not going to say thing dont happen they do. But not this often in one place. In 8 yrs we had one van broken into. We, the venue paid for the loss. We felt it was the least we could do. I hope police reports were made and you have seriel numbers on gear. RIP Fat Daddy's Sound Shack best of luck to the bands


anonymous 10/3/2014 10:21:56 AM

Yeah because hiring a guy to go on tour with you, sit in a van for hourrrs driving so he can stay in the van when you reach your destination makes total sense....hey anyone want to tour the country with my band? 1 rule...NEVER leave the van! Oh btw we cant really pay you much since we dont get paid much ourselves


anonymous 10/3/2014 10:28:51 AM

The amount of butt hurt that flows through Jim Hockings Twitter stinks of small dick and insecurity.


anonymous 10/3/2014 10:54:08 AM

its okay the bassists parents can afford to re-buy all the gear for him and his buddies


anonymous 10/3/2014 11:03:22 AM

Bunch of cry babies. You are solely responsible for your own shit. Boohoo


jon 10/3/2014 11:07:45 AM

when are these kids gonna learn. dont play st. louis


anonymous 10/3/2014 11:53:35 AM

St Louis is a shit hole. Crime is high and theres a lot of gangs so Im not suprised


anonymous 10/3/2014 12:07:01 PM

I know the owner, he would not do anything to hurt his livelihood. Take some responsibility for your possessions. Hang outside most of the night. Most of the locals aren't that good anyway so you aren't missing anything


anonymous 10/3/2014 12:15:00 PM

One thing about this.... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !!! Good. This band is crap anyways.


anonymous 10/3/2014 12:38:51 PM

what I don't get is if this happened to over 10 bands in almost a year then why hasn't something been done to prevent it? It shouldn't take that long and that many break ins to realize this either isnt a good venue for bands to be booked at or maybe there needs to be cameras and guards keeping a better eye out.


anonymous 10/3/2014 12:39:19 PM

It was me. I strike solely based on personal taste. It Lies Within and Carnifex are next.


anonymous 10/3/2014 12:50:19 PM

This happens to idiots, and idiots alone. You're in St. Louis... Watch your shit.


anonymous 10/3/2014 12:51:23 PM

being from st. louis and have been to and played at this venue several times, these guys are full of shit about there being a security lot. and these fcktards are also confusing the venues this has happened at and how many times. they are just but hurt because without their little apple computer to play their guitar parts their live show are going to be worse.


anonymous 10/3/2014 12:52:58 PM

most garbage band of all time. Not a single fck given.


anonymous 10/3/2014 12:55:23 PM

Chad, Brandon and Jim all have rich parents. They'll buy new stuff for them. Who gives a fck?


anonymous 10/3/2014 1:12:20 PM

"Shapist was also robbed their. Someone broke into "Griffins car, and stole his 7 string guitar about a week or two ago." Here's an idea you dumb sack of shit, don't put your expensive ass guitar sitting in your back seat in an area that is kinda of sketchy and your window won't get smashed and your shit stolen.


anonymous 10/3/2014 1:23:07 PM

A laptop, cash, and a passport all fit in a fcking back pack. Something that is easily carried and can be kept at your merch booth or on stage with you.


anonymous 10/3/2014 1:32:11 PM

"FTFD is from Detroit...I would assume they're not idiots when it comes to stuff like this. This can't be some random ninja hobo robbing all these bands." You mean a band from Lansing, the capital city which is an hour and a half away from Detroit?


anonymous 10/3/2014 2:04:08 PM

St.Louis is badfcknAss but if u little Bitches cant handle it then Please stay tha fck home..cuz i like my Metal played by Men(or women)..Not by raggin'Ass girl scouts..Suck my fck..Fubar Rules..\m/


anonymous 10/3/2014 2:09:23 PM

It's a pity how quick you all are to judge. As if you don't make mistakes. I feel sorry for people that only find satisfaction within the misery of others.


anonymous 10/3/2014 2:27:30 PM

Shitty arrogant dudes, playing shit music. Mom will buy you a new Mac book, don't worry. Too bad all the talent from this band is in The Ghost Inside now...


anonymous 10/3/2014 2:45:15 PM

My ex gf knows the owner realllyyyy good and she said it wasn't staff but that he does have someone he calls and tips off to when and where to do the robberies. Sad world we live in.


anonymous 10/3/2014 3:15:50 PM

The Van Robbery Was an Inside Job


anonymous 10/3/2014 3:55:19 PM

for the fallen cares


anonymous 10/3/2014 4:47:39 PM

Easy pickings...see a van with out-of-state plate and a trailer and you know no ones coming back for a while. Nice city response. They talk about policing crime hot spots, this seems kinda obvious. Fubar posted they hired a couple more people for outside and are offering to store stuff in their office now...


anonymous 10/3/2014 4:52:41 PM

Minimal sympathy, keep your shit in your backpack, don't be a moron.


anonymous 10/3/2014 6:20:38 PM

I'd just avoid Fubar if you're in a touring band, I've never heard of that many bands being robbed at one venue.


anonymous 10/3/2014 7:50:42 PM

Fubar should be on an episode of scooby doo. Case solved


anonymous 10/3/2014 8:29:52 PM

not one member of for the fallen dreams past or present is from detroit. not even close by. get your shit together. and who cares if they got robbed. it's not like anyone got shot and or killed. fckin rich kids need to man up and quit pretending to be hard. people get robbed every day.


anonymous 10/3/2014 9:55:27 PM

where were you when i needed you?


anonymous 10/3/2014 10:25:55 PM

Why would any band agree to play this venue with so many robberies of bands in this year alone? I have thought about going to a couple shows at this venue, but now that it is apparent that it is surrounded by crack head n:ggers waiting to rob people, I might pass on any shows there


anonymous 10/4/2014 12:45:54 AM

Traitors is the worst band of all time


anonymous 10/4/2014 6:23:22 AM

This needs to happen to for the fallen dreams until they agree to stop playing music.


anonymous 10/4/2014 10:44:36 AM

Half the people posting on this thread are just pisses that I've years ago when they went to see ftfd they got beat up or hit in the pit. Sorry this bad is more relevant than you will ever be and I don't even really like them. We should set up lambgoat fights I'd love to lay a few of you mofos out. Once I started training to fight I stopped smashing people at shows didn't feel it was right. But I'd love to destroy a basement bully.


anonymous 10/4/2014 10:46:51 AM

This never woulda happened if Dylan Richter was there.


anonymous 10/4/2014 12:08:15 PM

Totally a inside job


anonymous 10/4/2014 1:42:57 PM

"Half the people posting on this thread are just pisses that I've years ago" Well, yeah dude. That's entirely true. Wait, what?


anonymous 10/4/2014 1:43:35 PM

Mosh warrior is angry^^^^

Shittiest of dudes in this band... Karma is a mother fcker

St. Louis must have some amazing pawn shops.


LordFanch 10/5/2014 5:23:32 PM

Some of these comments are ridiculous. I own fubar. I have 8 cameras. There is no inside job. I have never done heroin in my life and weigh 250lbs. Dont leave your shit in your vehicle. Bring it in the club.


anonymous 10/5/2014 11:07:34 PM

I've done multiple shows there and am pretty sure I have an idea who is doing it because the last couple times have involved a white guy with a truck casing my groups before the locals are robbed or bands at venues down the street are robbed. Also, there is no parking lot near by at all.


anonymous 10/6/2014 1:47:22 PM

The owner weights about 350 and he's a big Popeye's chicken eating motherfcker plus they got no cameras because it's an inside job!


anonymous 10/6/2014 4:12:47 PM

why do people go to cities where black people live?


anonymous 10/7/2014 10:25:37 AM

ILLUMINATI!!!!


anonymous 10/7/2014 2:44:20 PM

I got a box of produce in at work and it said ruhlig on it


anonymous 10/7/2014 8:16:51 PM

so FFAD wants the owner to put cameras in a parking lot that he doesn't own and that is a half block away from the venue? fcking twats. And where has this number of ten bands come from? downtown st. louis is not the best area. watch your shit.


anonymous 10/9/2014 7:23:26 AM

An inside job? Go fck yourself. Fubar is 2 blocks from the hood, anyone with half a brain wouldn't leave expensive shit in a fcking van. Gtfo.


anonymous 10/10/2014 7:25:58 PM

fck that city, fck that venue, carry a gun. It's your bad for playing there knowing the amount of thefts that occur. Singer is screaming at security "whereeeeee were youuuuu"


anonymous 10/22/2014 5:06:45 PM

"I've played here at least 20 different times and have never had a problem. The Fubar is one of the best venues in the Midwest, bands get robbed everywhere you can't blame the venue/promoter for some crack head stealing your shit." ^ Give me a break, Fubar isn't even one of the best venues in St. Louis. Having played around town, that venue was the worst experience. Terrible sound guy, rude ownership and a shitty location. They didn't even have enough mics.
