Thieves Recently Attempted To Steal Archspire’s Trailer While The Band’s Drummer Was Sleeping In It


While some bands have found success in planting tracking devices in their trailer and gear to thwart theft while touring, technical death metal outfit Archspire chose to go the old fashioned route. To that end, they had their drummer Spencer Prewett sleeping alongside their instruments, gear and merch inside the trailer. As it turned out, last night that proved to be a very wise decision.

In a post shared earlier today (April 24th,) the band stated:

We had our van parked in a hotel parking lot, and two trucks rolled up and started trying to detach our trailer from our van. Luckily our drummer Spencer was sleeping in the back, he woke up and scared the shit out of them and they peeled off. We were SO CLOSE to having our entire touring rig stolen, including merch, gear, clothing, everything.

What were trying to say, is EVERY NIGHT ON THIS TOUR COULD BE OUR LAST so if you’re on the fence about coming to a show, DON’T SLEEP ON GETTING TICKETS!!!”
