Our guitarist has been sending this email out and I just thought it worth posting on here, as this has been a shit weekend for us.
I play guitar in the Tupolev Ghost, and I just thought I’d contact you regarding some bad luck from the weekend. Unfortunately my car was broken into outside a venue in Cambridge and my entire guitar setup (around £2000 of PRS and Mesa Boogie) of musical equipment was stolen from it. I’m in a total square one situation as it’s equipment I’ve treasured and accumulated over the years and obviously replacing it is going to take a while.
The band is currently in a pretty Dire situation equipment wise. Our other guitarists Marshall head went missing at a london roughly 2 months ago so the band has been left amp-less. We are currently putting the finishing touches to a 6 track record that is to be released through Big Scary Monsters Records in March and have a 2 and a half week UK/Ireland tour booked up to coincide with the release date. We’re shooting our first video in 2 weeks time and we recently had a full page kerrang introducing article and have received various kerrang live reviews and NME articles. The current lack of equipment is a real set back and we’re in a ‘don’t know what to do’ situation as far as gigging/touring is concerned as we now don’t have a guitar amp between the band.
Basically we were wondering if you could help us out of this situation in any shape or form? We don’t want to have to stop playing until we can afford new equipment as were on a roll at the moment and really seems as though things are starting to take off.
