The Suffers are unfortunately the latest victims of musical thievery, as up to $30,000 worth of equipment was stolen out of their mobile trailer following their appearance at Homegrown Festival in Dallas, TX earlier this month.

The band has launched a GoFundMe crowdsourcing campaign in hopes that their fans can help get them through this financial nightmare. According to the campaign, the theft of their equipment occurred after the band was forced to park their van and trailer containing all of their equipment at an unguarded parking lot in Dallas after the van began to break down. Members took with them as much gear as they could, but sadly some of the larger items had to be left behind in the trailer. Security guards would eventually notice that the trailer had been stolen the next morning, but by that time it was too late and Dallas police would go on to find the trailer both damaged and empty a few days later.

Of the $30,000 worth of equipment that was stolen, items included a pair of two Nord keyboards, their digital monitor mixing rig, merchandise, a Roland drum pad, and a Yamaha snare drum.

The band’s singer Kam Franklin also took to Twitter upon the launch of the campaign in stating, “Asking for help is hard as fuck, but it is what it is. Some assholes stole our trailer last week and it was found empty by the police. We launched a GofundMe to help us get through this extremely fucked up time, and we will recover.”

Thankfully, local media outlets like Houston’s KHOU News helped shine a light on what happened to the band. Fans can watch the news segment explaining what happened, starting at the 0:35-minute mark in the video below.

The crowdsourcing campaign was launched on Tuesday and as of Wednesday morning, has already racked up an impressive $11,200 of their $20,000 goal.

The band is scheduled to continue their 2019 tour campaign with a performance at Mid City Ballroom in Baton Rouge, LA on Thursday, April 24th. Fans can head to the band’s website for tickets and tour information for all of their upcoming performances.
