Tosin Abasi with stolen guitar

Stories like this make me see red. As if their luck wasn’t bad enough, some scumbags broke into guitarist Javier Reyes’ home and stole a bunch of gear while the band were out on tour. Here’s the news:

Hey guys.

We’ve got some pretty terrible news to report. Upon returning home to our house in LA we discovered that we’d been robbed while were out on tour. The thieves were able to get away with Javier’s Chevy Blazer and all of the equipment we didn’t have on tour with us. 10 guitars in total. This includes many of our one of a kind custom instruments (Stranberg,Rick Toone ) as well as amplifiers, PA equipment and personal items.

This is beyond devastating. We know so many of you have been beyond supportive with Javier’s legal troubles. We may need more of your help now to potentially find some of these one of a kind instruments that may pop up on Ebay, Craigslist, pawn shops, used music stores etc.

[We’ve added] an album containing photos and detailed descriptions of the stolen gear to our profile. Please take a look and keep your eyes open for anything that looks close to this stuff. I truly think that with your help we have an exponentially better chance of tracking some of this down.

If anyone has any information about any of this gear, please contact us at [email protected]. Please, keep it to messages containing leads on the stolen gear.


Tosin, Javier

Keep an eye out in and around California shops as well as online retailers for the stolen equipment and help out if you can if you know or see anything. Hopefully their love of custom gear will lead to swift recovery of the items. Good luck, guys!
