Born Of Osiris home studio robbed

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 11:03 AM PT / 9,608 views
Born Of Osiris guitarist Lee McKinney had a handful of valuable items stolen on Monday night when the home he and his wife share was burglarized. According to McKinney, who is currently on tour, one of the intruders was armed with a knife. Among the valuables taken were five guitars and four guns. He had the following to say:
"Last night on Monday, March 11th, our home was burglarized. The intruder(s) entered through a second floor window and carried a knife that was left on the scene, which makes us feel as if they were willing to potentially do more than walk out with material items had someone been home. Stolen items include a TV, 5 guitars, 1 audio interface, 4 guns, 1 camera, and 1 amplifier. "We have notified the local police and a full investigation is underway. We're hoping that by bringing this to public attention that anyone who sees one of these items on sale in any way could help us track down the person who did this. Material items are one thing, but justice against the person who came into our home with a weapon is of the utmost importance. Fortunately our family is safe. Thank you for your time and concern, and we greatly appreciate any and all information you might have."
The serial numbers of the missing instruments are: Walnut LPM7 - 69540, Honey V6X - 132686, Monster O7X - 139438, Sea Foam VB5 - 139204

Those are some ugly fcking guitars. The burglar did you a favor.

somehow or another either Tim Lambesis or Beth Herbert were involved in this.

He should be worried about those missing guns. Illinois gun laws say that, if a murder is committed with any of those weapons, homeboy is on the hook for it. Buy a gun safe. Don't leave your shit laying out.

ALWAYS MAKE SOMEONE SLEEP AT THE STUDIO. Fkn amateurs


anonymous 3/12/2019 11:50:48 AM

Well...that sucks a great deal...Sad though I can open up about personal stuff, lose six months in the process. Next time...keep them locked up.

Could've asked me!!! I could've feather dusted in my maid outfit

Sounds like these guys specifically went for instruments and equipment, the TV seems like it was taken for the hell of it. Inside job or some other band that was robbed just trying to get new gear.


anonymous 3/12/2019 12:19:21 PM

^ seems pretty clear that if you entered an otherwise normal house with the intent to rob it and you discovered a home studio, you'd prioritize taking expensive studio equipment over silverware and plates.


anonymous 3/12/2019 1:23:42 PM

^ there's the crook!

LIKE BRINGING A KNIFE TO A GUN FIGHT.

Before Born Of Osiris blew up, their synth player (?) used to record bands out of his parents basement. I remember a story about a particular band that was friends with the kid, and immediately after they loaded in and sound checked, the kid's Mom berated him from the top of the stairs and tried to boot everyone out. Band recorded a couple drum tracks, and the b*tch made a fuss again so the band had to do two sessions.


anonymous 3/12/2019 1:47:48 PM

(Cont) Well, when the drummer got his kit back, the retards in BOO had played on it and apparently gouged the sh*t out of the double bass pedal. BOO dudes almost shit their pants for years to come whenever they would see the drummer around town ha ha ha.


anonymous 3/12/2019 1:48:54 PM

At least he will never have to worry about someone stealing his hair style, gross


anonymous 3/12/2019 1:51:17 PM

"^ seems pretty clear that if you entered an otherwise normal house with the intent to rob it and you discovered a home studio, you'd prioritize taking expensive studio equipment over silverware and plates." Breaking into a house to steal plates and silverware? This ain't the Bronx sage@.


anonymous 3/12/2019 1:53:41 PM

another band robbed trying to get new gear. nothing wrong with that and time never stops


anonymous 3/12/2019 1:54:40 PM

This is stickup! Give me all your fine China, on the double! -Said no one ever.


anonymous 3/12/2019 1:55:40 PM

...and where was Tim Lambesis when all of this happened?


anonymous 3/12/2019 1:57:47 PM

Kids who live off their parents in Barrington, IL Mansions are stoked because their Mommy and Daddy probably payed for the stuff anyway.

Insurance fraud.

Marc Okubo from Veil Of Maya: Would you like to drop by a peep the new axe collection?


anonymous 3/12/2019 2:01:08 PM

Remember when their drummer got sent to rehab by his parents?


anonymous 3/12/2019 2:04:01 PM

TFW you and your band mates can't think of a bitchin band name, so you name your shizz after the rehab you got sent too.


anonymous 3/12/2019 2:06:15 PM

This is why you always lock your studio and back it up against a building.


anonymous 3/12/2019 2:11:55 PM

I remember these kids being straight nerds. Only played at the EG VFW, the Clearwater Theater, Rainbow Falls, or KOC. Hardly ever supported the other IL bands busting their ass and would seldomly come to shoes they weren't playing. Band suddenly gets signed, and these fools are trying to cool guy cats from the Chicago scene with their full sleeves of space shit they had practically gotten overnight. With Sumerian, this band would have been nothing.


anonymous 3/12/2019 2:12:56 PM

*Without ^^^


anonymous 3/12/2019 2:29:53 PM

Loving the shit references to their terrible pre-Sumerian days as Rosecrance


anonymous 3/12/2019 3:14:00 PM

Inside job much? At least the dude had guns, for what good those did him.


anonymous 3/12/2019 3:17:10 PM

"^ seems pretty clear that if you entered an otherwise normal house with the intent to rob it and you discovered a home studio, you'd prioritize taking expensive studio equipment over silverware and plates." lol this isn't Home Alone, Marv. Put down the crowbar, you wet bandit moron.

Band is from Barrington, IL, a richy rich Suburb, NW Of Chicago. No care where they live or don't live currently.


anonymous 3/13/2019 12:29:04 AM

Dude realized he married a bitch that looks like a dog and tried to pull a Lambesis. The disappearance of the gear was simply a distraction cuz the broad wasn't home.


anonymous 3/13/2019 7:11:12 AM

Sounds like an insurance scam if you asked me.


anonymous 3/13/2019 8:03:17 AM

This is the price you pay for not being a toxic masculine man
