Pelican robbed in Rome

by Black Bubblegum


While on their European (mega)tour with Torche, Pelican hit a bit of a snag….

Two days ago we had a spare half hour to spend in Rome before heading to the venue, so we decided to go see the Coliseum. We parked nearby and went to take a brief twenty minute walk around the area. When we returned to our van we found that it had been broken into, despite being parked on a major street in broad daylight. Four bags were stolen, the contents including computers, passports, wallets, ipods, our soundguy’s microphone collection, and, most devastatingly, a number of personal journals and two portable recording devices containing hours of song ideas that are now lost forever.

The band has set up a paypal account at to try and recoup some of those costs (microphone collection… yikes), but those recording devices… ouch.

Pelican‘s North American ‘Champions Of Sound’ tour with Kayo Dot & Stove Bredsky kicks off in Mt. Clemens at the end of October.
