Sirens & Sailors Left Penniless By Theft While On Tour In Europe

Sirens & Sailors have been the victims of a crippling theft while on tour overseas. According to the band, everything from their ID to every penny they earned over the past month of touring was looted from their van. They issued the following statement and call for help on the matter:

“Ladies and Gentlemen, if you would be so kind as to please take the time to read this, it could make a gigantic difference in our lives today.

It is every bands nightmare to come back to their van and see that it has been broken into and robbed, and today that nightmare has become reality for us. To add to it, we are overseas in completely foreign territory feeling more helpless than ever.

Every single dollar we brought with us, every single penny that we have earned over the past month of touring overseas has been stolen. Licenses, credit cards, essential medical supplies, laptops, electronic equipment, even down to our toiletries, GONE. In a matter of minutes, our livelihood has been taken from us. Our dream come true has become the exact opposite.

We have always been against starting a kick starter or any sort of band funding besides playing shows and selling merch, like any touring band should earn their keep. We have done it successfully for years now, but today we have no choice, and no other option.

    Should’ve had an alarm siren on the van before they set sail.

    Wow how unbelievably shitty. I don’t even know who these guys are but I wouldn’t wish this on any band, well maybe only on Emmure, Blood On The Dance Floor, and Falling In Reverse.

    Sucks. However, being in a foreign country where you can’t easily deposit your funds into a your bank account, you would think that they would be more careful about leaving their shit unattended. Seriously, work in shifts and never leave the gear alone like that. No excuses, especially with a band crew around. Still, I feel for them.

    That’s a bad feeling, I lost my wallet, money, ID, passport everything in Mexico. I was freaking out when I got a call from a tour guide that found it and she returned everything the next day. I wish these guys that kind of luck.
