another band’s van was stolen in Philly (same spot as Mae) (band cancels dates on best tour ever)

Kill Hannah

Chicago’s nu romantics KILL HANNAH woke up on the eve of wrapping their fall tour with Jet, Papa Roach and Morningwood to a find their 15-passenger van and 14-foot trailer stolen. Taken between 4am and 11am today, Wednesday, November 11 from the front of the Holiday Inn on 900 Packer Ave, Philadelphia, PA-the same location that rock trio Mae had their van stolen from just a week earlier-the band lost over $120,000 in gear and merchandise, including one-of-a-kind vintage custom guitars and vintage custom effects. The theft comes just over a year after a devastating fire in Europe destroyed everything on the band’s bus.

Lead singer Mat Devine says, “We’re devastated and speechless. We’ve been touring so hard around the world for the past seven years and this is the most evil thing we’ve witnessed. Special Crimes say this was a coordinated heist.”

The band regretfully has to cancel their remaining tour dates, scheduled for the Electric Factory in Philadelphia [Wednesday] and the Nokia Theatre in New York City [tonight]. Their seventh annual “New Heart For Xmas” weekend of shows and events are still scheduled in Chicago on December 18 at Reggie’s Rock House and December 19 at Metro.

Police believe the perp may not be a fan of emo. Seriously though, that sucks. List of stolen gear below…

Specific gear stolen include:
– Epiphone Elitist Riviera Custom Shop SN#T301722
– 1992 Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray Bass
– Pair of matching vintage 1968 Fender Bassman Heads Custom Shop
– 2- Gibsons ES-135 One Red /one blue)
– 2003 Gibson Firebird White
– Marshall Triple Lead Stack
