Stolen gear fund for SPINDRIFT

2020 was a tough year for touring bands.  For Los Angeles psyche rockers SPINDRIFT an extra blow was dealt when their gear was stolen out of their rehearsal space last November (see the KTLA news story for details.)  As a long time fan and supporter of the band, I was shocked and saddened to hear the news of the theft.  I wanted to start this campaign back in November.  However, the band asked me to hold off for the moment, as they were hoping to be able to recover their gear.  To date, they've only been able to recover the double neck bass and one case of pedals.  All donations will go directly to the band.  Let's help SPINDRIFT get back on their feet in 2021!

Please consider ordering their forthcoming album Classic Soundtrack Vol 3 on Alternative Tentacles

A word from SPINDRIFT:

 

Friends, fans, and family—wdo realize that asking for help during a time where everyone is struggling is a tall order.  This has been a rough year for all of us.  Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to recover the majority of our gear that was stolen in November and we feel that allowing donations is the only way to dig ourselves out of this situation.  We’ve gone months now without playing music as a band, but we’re trying to stay positive—we’re eager to rebuild, do some livestreams, and start recording our next album.  

 

Our DTLA warehouse was broken into via sledgehammer and totally ransacked, destroyed, and violated.  There was over 30k worth of stuff stolen, but our main goal with this GoFundMe is simply to get to a place where we can function as a band again; we’re attempting to replace pedal boards, guitars, amps, recording equipment, PA’s, etc.  We live for playing and it’s been rough going without it, so any help that we receive will mean so much to us on many different levels

 

We’re releasing our next album, Classic Soundtracks Vol. 3, on Alternative Tentacles in the near future, so if anyone prefers to help by pre-ordering the album linked above, we’ll be equally as grateful.  Thanks so much to anyone who contributes to our cause and we hope everyone is well.  We miss all of you andcan’t wait until we’re free to tour and see ya’ll again!
