ELWAY’s bad luck on the road (European dates)

ELWAY ran into problems while touring Europe. The band got arrested in Russia and then robbed in Berlin. Check out their official word below.

Hey dudes,

So European tour is going super well. The shows have been, bar-none, all amazing and we’ve been getting treated like the rock gods that we so totally aren’t. I encourage you to read about our exploits here (

The reason I write this here note is not so joyous, however… Last night in Berlin after our show at The Ramones Museum, we had about half of our merch stolen. 200 shirts, 100 7″s, 50 cds, and some coozies, stickers and handbags were taken. All in all, about 3000 euro worth of stuff was taken. It’s shitty, because you just know whoever stole it couldn’t possibly do shit with it so why the fuck take it? Anyway, here we are with about 6 weeks of tour left without nearly enough merch to survive. It is literally the only negative thing about the whole tour.

So I know this sucks, but we’re kind of out of options at this point, so we’re going to open up our paypal to donations to try and make back a couple bucks of this money and maybe get some new merch before we leave Europe.

Our paypal address is if you’d like to help us out. Thanks in advance.
