May 16th, 2016
Having already faced a major spot of bad luck lately when their passports were stolen three weeks ago, resulting in £3,000 of damage to replace, change their flights, and to get US summer working visas, ROAM‘s have faced more misfortune in France.
The band, who are currently in Europe supporting Simple Plan with The Bottom Line, were robbed whilst they were sleeping in their touring van, which included the band’s cash, show fees, merch money and personal money.
You can find a series of tweets posted by the band regarding the incident below:

Allegedly, according to what the police have reported, the band were gassed whilst they were already sleeping, allowing the criminals to enter the vehicle and commit the crime without causing any of the members to wake up and alert them of their presence.
Those who wish to help out the band can purchase merchandise and music from the band’s webstore (here).
