As covered by BrooklynVegan, Beach Slang's touring van, including all of their musical gear and band merchandise, was stolen in Seattle. On Sunday, the band posted a photo to Twitter of a sad face drawing with the inscription, "Please stop robbing us"—see the tweet below. Beach Slang faced an earlier theft when, last November, items were stolen from their van in Austin, Texas.

"Our van and trailer were stolen last night," the band noted in their determined tweet. "All of our gear, all of our merch, but none of our charge. It's a pretty beautiful thing to be surrounded by people who refuse to be broken."
