Mineral had their van broken into, gear stolen

Mineral at Riot Fest Chicago 2014 (more by James Richards IV)
Mineral

Mineral are in the midst of their first tour in 17 years which began with four nights in NYC (after a surprise hometown show in Austin), hit Riot Fest Chicago this past weekend, will hit Fun Fun Fun Fest (Nite shows included), and more. Unfortunately, they’ve now run into some bad luck. The band posted on Facebook:

ALERT: After our show this evening in St Louis at the Firebird we went to celebrate Chris’ birthday by going bowling at Flamingo Bowl. Shortly after 1am our van was broken into and all of our belongings were stolen. Thousands and thousands of dollars in personal electronics, a cash box with several shows worth of merch sales, clothing, invaluable intellectual property, and many many other items. Our rear cargo hold with most of the gear was thankfully left safe. The van was locked, we specifically paid to park in a well lit lot with an attendant. When we came out 30 min later, attendant was gone, locks popped off, and belongings gone. Please if anyone in the area has any information email us at mineral@officialmineral.com. There have been many burglaries targeting band vehicles and clubs in the St Louis area, please repost/share and help spread the word so other traveling bands are more aware and alert of their surroundings and decision making.

Total bummer to hear. Best of luck to them.
