Harm’s Way recently fell victim to theft in their home town of chicago. Along side their van being stolen, a decent amount of music equipment was taken as well. Below is a write up from the band with info on what you can do to help. This coming monday night I will be auctioning some rare Harm’s Way vinyl, including a No Gods No Masters and ISOLATION test press.

As you may or may not have heard, earlier this week our van was stolen from the Wicker Park area of Chicago. Worse yet, the van contained a good amount of equipment inside. We would love to be able to replace everything lost, including the van itself, but the total loss is around $7,000 and out of our reach currently. We were on the fence about whether or not to start some kind of benefit fund, benefit show, kickstart, etc. Basically we decided last night that we would put our PayPal out there and let anyone who wants to donate the ability to do so. If you want to help us out, this is the best possible way to do it, even if it’s $1. LIterally any amount of money we receive would be a huge help, we still want to tour and play shows but this is a major obstacle.

At the bottom you will see a link to our PayPal, as well as a link to the Craigslist add which contains a list of everything lost.

If you retweeted, shared, liked, or in any way spread around the Craigslist we had up, PLEASE do the same with this.

Thank you very much for reading.
