Cephalic Carnage robbed

Cephalic Carnage were the victims of theft while on tour in Oklahoma this week. Here's a statement from the band: "While Cephalic Carnage were getting their van repaired in Tulsa, OK on Tuesday, November 20th we were robbed. A backpack containing the recent earnings from the tour (close to $4000.00), a laptop computer with over $2000.00 in music software programs loaded, an ipod and various personal items were among the items stolen. We immediately called the police and suspected that an employee grabbed the backpack in the process of getting the work done. The police came and took a written statement. The authorities suspected that it was an inside job as well but could not prove anything at that point. It is still under investigation but as of yet they still have not recovered the property or money. This could not have come as at a worst time as we were looking to use earnings from this tour to help cover the upcoming holiday expenses for our kids and families. As you might expect we are extremely upset as this tour was doing very well for us (both financially and morale wise). Despite this major setback the band is still continuing on with the Dying Fetus tour until the end. Our hopes are that we will be able to break even on this tour and not have to reach into our pockets to cover travel expenses, merch costs etc. We are looking for any type of assistance from our fans to help us thru this difficult scenario. Donations can be made here. Any donation of any amount will be absolutely appreciated. If you cannot do anything at this time then please try to make it out to our remaining shows on this tour and support us that way. In spite of everything we are having a great time with Dying Fetus and the crowd support and response that we have been getting on each and every show has been astounding. Have a great Holiday Season. Talk to you soon!"

applesacks 11/23/2007 2:17:31 PM

hard time to be a nihilist huh?


Woodshatter 11/23/2007 2:17:41 PM

That sucks. Good dudes, good band. Surprised they don't seem as angry as they could be.


lartsa 11/23/2007 2:18:48 PM

good band/dudes. endless cycle of violence, from the big bang, to street gangs we live it everyday

Woodshatter 11/23/2007 2:17:41 PM That sucks. Good dudes, good band. Surprised they don't seem as angry as they could be. Their weed probably wasn't in that bag


TODonnIEFOR 11/23/2007 2:20:12 PM

honestly....as much as bands get shit stolen....if you leave 4,000 dollars and a laptop in your van that is getting fixed....out of your supervision....you deserve for this to happen to you.


thorgasm 11/23/2007 2:20:18 PM

So I skipped this show, and it turns out Cephalic will prolly be skipping Tulsa from now on. Ugh.


danofthedead 11/23/2007 2:27:25 PM

There are places called banks to store your money. Also, this might be karma fcking them for not showing up to the Summer Slaughter show in Lawrence, KS.


carnivoresince84 11/23/2007 2:29:42 PM

bunch of no good potheads...get real jobs fruits


Seppuku 11/23/2007 2:34:24 PM

"This could not have come as at a worst time as we were looking to use earnings from this tour to help cover the upcoming holiday expenses for our kids and families. " = WEED! WEED! WEED!


The_Suit 11/23/2007 2:35:09 PM

"Hey, what's up. Uhhh, we were kind of careless with a backpack containing a laptop and $4000 and it ended up getting lifted. You like us, right? Can you give us some money?" Good band, but sheesh.

feastondeadgirls 11/23/2007 2:54:02 PM

Lol@ asking for donations... Insurance scam not working out?


rhino 11/23/2007 3:02:16 PM

"Dude did you get the backpack out of the van?" "No I thought you grabbed it?" "fck! our weed is in there"


as_i_laycrying 11/23/2007 3:08:52 PM

i bet they mesnt 4000 dollars in bud. lol


SETHDLH 11/23/2007 3:12:21 PM

smart dudes. lets keep 4 grand in a backpack


fryin_cojax 11/23/2007 3:15:18 PM

who the fck leaves $4000 cash in a van, unattended???....fckers got what they deserved and i will be donating not a single penny. BAH HUMBUG!!!


notorious_dob 11/23/2007 3:37:22 PM

this happened to my band at a jiffy lube. sucks horribly, but there's no way to prove anything, so the cops cant recover anything. good luck fellas.


schrute666 11/23/2007 3:37:37 PM

Tulsa rolls hard... It was probably some juggalo mechanic. Anybody wanna buy some software or an ipod?


notorious_dob 11/23/2007 3:42:22 PM

and anyone who expects a band to take all their possessions and belongings out of the van every time they exit their vehicle is a fcking idiot. do you take everything out of your room everytime you leave your house?


thealmightyjim 11/23/2007 3:46:41 PM

Taking a backpack containing your band's livelihood out of the van doesn't seem all that unreasonable.


AVastCollectionOfAssholes 11/23/2007 4:01:19 PM

yeah because god forbid you have to shell out some of your own cash to stay afloat on tour. that's completely unreasonable. not.


ass_shit 11/23/2007 4:03:00 PM

That sucks so bad. maybe they shouldn't have left that money in a bag, but it happened, and they're broke as fck now. all of you would be pissed too.


verdrinken 11/23/2007 4:04:20 PM

what happened to bands who got robbed before the internet and couldnt ask for donations via paypal and gayspace


rick_tocchet 11/23/2007 4:13:01 PM

i have a shit load of student loans to pay off. im setting up a paypal account. please help.


sytmatt 11/23/2007 4:20:32 PM

boo hooo. always keep your backpack on you when your not playing, and always have a band you trust watch your shit when you play. you think they would have caught on to this idea a few years ago.


metaljohn 11/23/2007 4:41:17 PM

i was gonna take the band fund out of the van before getting it serviced . . . but then i got high DOO DE DOO DOO DOO DOO -afroman


neighbordave 11/23/2007 4:52:26 PM

that sucks. but yeah who would leave all that shit unsupervised in their van? thats just fcking stupid

xBILLfromsteinx 11/23/2007 5:29:19 PM

fcking stoners. get a life, get a brain. now Cephalic looks like complete tools for leaving $4000 & a laptop in a van, unsupervised. fcking dipshits.


Snakes_McFadden 11/23/2007 5:43:02 PM

Got to take care of those valuables, but anytime your robbed it's never your fault.


DARTHDEATHSTAR 11/23/2007 5:57:42 PM

*makes played out joke about weed*


Har_Har 11/23/2007 6:00:19 PM

I like this band, but fck them for even thinking of asking for my money because they were retarded enough to leave thousands of dollars worth of shit unwatched. It's ok though, I'm sure they will spot me money if my car gets stolen tomorrow


xvegeedgex 11/23/2007 6:12:20 PM

seek THE STRAIGHT EDGE, make better decisions. gays. I STILL LOVE YOUR BAND!!!!!!


jerryseinfeld 11/23/2007 6:24:21 PM

people making weed jokes and saying they should take all possessions out of the van every time they leave it, remind yourself that your a gay and dont know shit.


pukeskywalker 11/23/2007 8:33:39 PM

the very notion of holding $4,000 in cash is preposterous. put it in tha bank, stoopid


onemanbarfight 11/23/2007 8:37:28 PM

Fraility 11/24/2007 4:48:31 AM

So you get your shit stolen, and we're suppose to pay for it? GO fck yourselfs, you suck, end your music career now while you have a reason, other than your shitty fcking music. no donations .ever.


thetowerofrome 11/24/2007 5:17:14 AM

um when you are on tour you usually arent thinking of constantly putting money in a bank let alone not knowing where your specified bank is located in random cities around the u.s. you fcking idiots


thetowerofrome 11/24/2007 5:18:17 AM

you're a fcking retard fraility


piecemaker 11/24/2007 5:28:21 AM

"thetowerofrome 11/24/2007 5:18:17 AM you're a fcking retard fraility"


Dave2112 11/24/2007 7:23:57 AM

Listen you stupid gays, there are many bank branches that dont stretch across the United States. The likey hood the bank they use at home is in Tulsa, OK is unlikely.


mobab 11/24/2007 9:37:11 AM

way to go oklahoma


gaylarmed 11/24/2007 10:04:39 AM

so fcking scary, technology should allow belongings to explode when slimeballs try and theive them from you


jamestx 11/24/2007 11:42:25 AM

If these dudes have kids God help us all...


sytmatt 11/24/2007 1:08:24 PM

well at least i know whos van to break into next time they play maine


JudasGoat 11/24/2007 3:32:41 PM

Why you would leave that shit in your car while it's in the shop is beyond me.


xBILLfromsteinx 11/24/2007 3:34:08 PM

"thetowerofrome 11/24/2007 you usually arent thinking of constantly putting money in a bank" THEN GET A GUN AND CARRY THE MONEY ON YOU. shoot anyone that tries to steal from you


xSeanHannityx 11/24/2007 6:05:32 PM

bank it fcktards


heywhatsupfuckyou 11/24/2007 10:23:28 PM

we always take out the cash box and our ipods/laptops/etc when we get oil changes and shit I wonder how much weed they stole


redsunrises 11/24/2007 10:34:52 PM

too much metal would cause one's brain to think its ok to leave a bag like that laying around without supervision...


shredemdead 11/24/2007 11:22:55 PM

it was sota dumb to leave lots of money in the van while it was being serviced but that shitt sucks. this kind of shit shouldnt happen to good bands.


dreudamn 11/25/2007 12:00:03 AM

that's downright despicable.


BZM 11/25/2007 5:47:02 AM

I donated them $5. Call it a donation to karma. And a free autographed poster.

liunifyLOL 11/26/2007 9:01:57 PM

onemoremotherfucker 11/26/2007 10:13:38 PM

whoever stole that shit will be subject to a good-old-fashioned beat down at the hands of many bearded men if discovered


thedrone 11/28/2007 7:13:04 PM
