Fleshgod Apocalypse Robbed of Gear in Gothenburg, Remainder of Current European Tour Canceled
Fleshgod Apocalypse were in the midst of a European tour, but will not be able to complete the run after falling victim to thieves while staying over in Gothenburg, Sweden. The band's Francesco Paoli shot a rather aggravated video message, letting fans know of their fate via their social media. As a result of the theft, the band will miss the final four dates of the run in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Brasov and Mannheim.
"I'm not doing this video for begging money to fix my problems or crowdfunding shit," says Paoli. "This stinks. I'm just doing this video to inform the people that we cannot go on and play this tour. We're going to miss the last four gigs."
The band added a message to go along with the video that reads as follows:
Hello friends, we're sorry to inform you that we'll not be able to make it for the last four shows of this tour: Copenhagen, Hamburg, Brasov and Mannheim.
Last night some miserable pieces of shit broke into our van and stole our full live rig, production tools and stage props, drums gear, our signature custom-made guitars and bass (by Rufini Guitars), merchandise and various spare parts. Please let us know if you spot one of those turds trying to resell our stuff online.

If you want to help, you can give us a hand by buying some merchandise from our store (shop.fleshgodapocalypse.com).
This is a tough day for us, but we're stubborn like a bull and we'll keep working harder than before, which is the only way we know to overcome adversities.
Old-school we are, old-school we'll die.
Please spread the word and thanks so much for your support!
At the end of the video, Paoli vows that the band will fix the situation and will eventually return with new gear. So stay tuned for updates of when the band decides to return to the road.
