On their first ever North American tour, New Zealand brutal death metal band Ulcerate's van was broken into in New York and much of their equipment was stolen. However, the band is still planning to continue the rest of their tour.
The band has released the following update on their Facebook page: "We had our van broken into in New York last night at our accom. We've lost all our guitar gear (preamps, effects units), some drum equipment, stage banner and all of Svart Crown's merch was also ripped off. We're going to keep going but this is a fucking terrible start. We had phenomenal shows in Philadelphia and NYC last night so this is an absolute kick in the fucking teeth."
