Torche Robbed In Chicago

Torche had their van broken into between 1:30 a.m. and 4 a.m. on Friday after their show at the Congress Theater in Chicago. Much of the band’s belongings including their gear, luggage and laptops was stolen. Hydra Head has set up a Paypal donation page for fans wishing to help get the band back on their feet here. Torche have released a list of the gear stolen in hopes that it will be returned to them:

Since the band had their passports stolen, they’re unable to join Coheed And Cambria and Circa Survive on tour in Canada. They’ve scheduled several house shows until they’re able to meet back up with the tour on Monday in Boston.
