While on tour in Philadelphia, thieves broke into Atlanta-based Satellite District's van and made out with about $14,000 worth of equipment, according to lead guitarist Yul Gomez.
"We don't even have a guitar pick," he wrote in an email.
One of the few bilingual acts based in Atlanta, the band was on the first legs of a multi-city tour throughout the North and South East to promote its new material, but the unfortunate turn of events have threatened the continuation of the tour.
Many local bands in have come to our rescue by offering their gear to play some of our shows," read a post on their Myspace page. Even some of the ones we are playing with offered their share of pay for us."
Tomorrows show at the Drunken Unicorn is now being billed as fundraiser for the band, wholl play using equipment borrowed from fellow headliners Attention System and Promise December.
Their debut EP, New World, was self-released in September of last year and is available through iTunes.
