The loss has hit them hard as they're about to embark on a North American tour and were planning a few warm-up shows in the coming month.
The band have released a list of stolen gear, and are encouraging music fans to keep an eye out for anyone trying to sell it on.
The equipment taken includes:
Fender Blues Junior re issue amp with tweed finish
Fender sunburst precision bass
Fender Stage 100 amp
Pearl masters white marine pearl finish with gold trim rack tom drum;(12"x8") in rigid black case with yellow straps on catches
Pearl Masters sparkly blue snare drum with chrome trim()14"x6" kept in worn wine coloured case covered in old stickers with black tie strap
Trace Elliot bass head.
Fred's Joseph O'Leary has asked anyone with any information to get in touch: “If anyone happens to see any of these items under suspicious circumstances, please let the gardai know or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any help with this would be really appreciated.”
