Thornhill's rehearsal space broken into, equipment stolen


Jon Pisani

The Australian metalcore band Thornhill took to social media to inform their fans that they were victims of theft. It would appear the band's rehearsal space was broken into recently and most everything inside was stolen; equipment, merch, and other items valued upwards to $100,000.

The group has set up a GoFundMe to help recover missing items and their cost.

Hi all,

Sometime in the last few days our rehearsal space had been broken into and most of everything Thornhill and our members own has been stolen. The site where our rehearsal space is located had a major fire, and so no video evidence was captured as it had cut all power to the entire block.

This is a devastating blow to the band after the last year we have had trying to get back on track mentally, gearing up for a big year of touring, however with this incident nearing $100,000 worth of belongings stolen we have barely anything left, with drums, cymbals,guitar equipment, IEM racks, merch, cases, banners and personals being amongst the things stolen from the premises.

We have insurance however with CCTV footage and only a police report to go by we can only assume that we won't recover any of our costs back.

We are working closely with our agents in regards with our upcoming New Zealand and Australian tours to see if we can make things work, and, we are trying our best to put these shows on for you.

We have a link for a Gofundme below, which is to help replace the gear that we had, if you can spare anything it would mean the world to us as we are trying to find a way to get back on our feet and keep this band alive.

Please donate if you can and share around, love as always.

Jacob, Ethan, Ben and Nick
