As Metal Hammer notes, the band lost eight guitars, a set of cymbals, a bass amp and more. The band is currently on tour in support of their fourth album, "Magic Mountain." They have issued the following statement:

    Can't believe this happened to one of the most humble and nicest bands out there, whoever stole these is a major pr*ck.
    hopefully it will inspire an epic song, like when the same happened to metallica
    wait which Metallica song was inspired by that? i know theyr equipment was stolen but i had never heard of a song being inspired by it

    That's about suicide...
    It's about suicide, but it was written because they were crushed when their gear was stolen just before heading to Europe to record RTL. James had a marshall that he tweaked and recorded KEA with that was special to him. They had to test out a whole bunch of amps to find something with similar tone.
    there is literally not a single lyric that would suggest or imply that its written about losing an amp.
    I had all my equipment stolen in a break-in once. It was truly heartbreaking. Doesn't matter what you think of the band, their music, or whatever, this ****ing SUCKS no matter which way you slice it. My heart goes out to these guys, and I hope for swift justice to the piece of shit who did it.
    They were stolen to be used properly =) im mean
    Say what you will about their material (because 99.9% of it is terrible), but they are a very talented band.
