Immortal Bird's van, gear stolen

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 1:04 PM PT

Early this morning, Immortal Bird's van (in addition to its contents of musical equipment, unsold merch, and personal belongings) was stolen in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn, NY. The band is currently on tour with Withered and had played a show hours earlier at Saint Vitus Bar. They've issued this statement:

"This is a post we never wanted to make. This afternoon when we headed to our van we discovered it was missing. No broken glass, great neighborhood, everything was locked up and hidden away. We hoped it had been towed, but that wasn't the case. The NYPD found a video of our van blowing through the Verrazano Narrows Bridge toll at 6 AM. We parked at 3 AM. It has been stolen, and we think we were probably targeted and followed from Saint Vitus. We have filed a report and will regrettably have to miss our Boston show tonight. We are determined to keep the tour with Withered going but we have to figure out how. All of our gear and every bit of our merch was in the van. This is absolutely devastating and completely shocking. As we have no merch, all we have is our digital music on Bandcamp. Our PayPal is amitaydrums at gmail dot com as well. In the meantime, NY/NJ area please keep an eye out for a black 2006 Ford E350 with Illinois plates."

Additionally, a GoFundMe campaign has been launched on their behalf.
