News: Silent Planet's Van Broken Into
Yesterday, the band put out an post on their social media sites, stating that their van had been broken into. Now, lately it seems like a lot of hard working bands, Christian or not, have had their vans broken into. At one point, Both Christian Metal acts, Gideon and Convictions had their broken into on the same day! Now you might think they were together on a tour. Nope, totally different tour and states. Another band that comes to mind is Vanna. Around two-three (maybe four) months ago, Vanna had their broken into when they were on tour with For Today, Like Moths to Flame and Phinehas. But today we're talking about Silent Planet's van. Here's their statement for the van.
"So we just got robbed for the first time in the history of our band, which means we actually have a lot to be thankful for. A guitar amp and external AC unit were taken and our passenger window was smashed in. We total the damages at $1200-1500, so it's not a huge deal, just kinda annoying.
No need to donate or anything like that, but feel free to preorder our record for yourself or a friend. We think you'll like it: www.silentplanet.band
Thanks, Love y'all!"
Oh yes, and they are such amazing people that they wrote this touching and shocking P.S.: "P.S. Pray for the dude who stole our stuff, that he would be crazy blessed and find what he needs to get out of crime and start making this community a better place. He's probably a beautiful human going through a tough time."
That's beautiful right there. Not many bands say that in these situations. In fact, a fan of the band, Michael Ireland, said this in the comments. Here's that statement. "'P.S. Pray for the dude who stole our stuff, that he would be crazy blessed and find what he needs to get out of crime and start making this community a better place. He's probably a beautiful human going through a tough time.'" It sucks so much what happened but that is the classiest and nicest thing i've seen any band say in a situation like this."
This a crazy story! Anyways, pre-order the album at their site, and support these guys!
