For The Fallen Dreams, Favorite Weapon (ex- Woe, Is Me frontman) robbed in St. Louis
For The Fallen Dreams and Favorite Weapon are both currently on the Let The Ocean Take Me Tour, serving as support for the Amity Affliction. Last night during the tour's stop at the Fubar in St. Louis, both bands had their vans and trailers broken into and robbed. Favorite Weapon posted a statement on their Facebook page, stating they lost "a couple of passports, electronics, toiletries, and a few personal belongings of sentimental value that can't be replaced." You can read what they had to say in full below.
Last night in St. Louis, our van was broken into and robbed. We lost a couple of passports, electronics, toiletries, and a few personal belongings of sentimental value that can't be replaced. Our friends in For the Fallen Dreamswere robbed also. A lot of their personal belongings, as well as computers, a substantial amount of money, and all of their passports are gone. If you can, in any way whatsoever, please help them out. They have been through so much on this tour already and this is just another devastating blow. If you come out to this tour, please buy some merch from them or even donate what you can. They are all really good guys and didn't deserve this at all. Thanks for everyone's support and concerns
While For The Fallen Dreams haven't issued an official statement as of yet, the band's members have commented on the situation via their personal Twitter accounts. It should also be noted that the possibility of the robbery being an inside job is being entertained by band members. As Lambgoat has pointed out, another band by the name of Traitors were robbed at the same venue just this past August.
Earlier on this same tour, For The Fallen Dreams were traveling on a highway to a date in Spokane, WA, when they were rear-ended by a construction worker who had apparently fallen asleep at the wheel. Their trailer was entirely totaled.
