Toronto punk trio the OBGMs had their van broken into and damaged, as well as gear stolen, in Vancouver amid their tour with Death from Above 1979.

Yesterday (October 25), the band shared on Twitter that they had had their car broken into following their Vancouver show the night before. "Still processing this," they wrote, "Drum toms, snares taken, car damaged. Trying to figure out what else is wrong still."

Miraculously, they still managed to perform in Victoria last night as the final Canadian show on the North American trek.

The OBGMs' dates with Death from Above 1979 are due to pick up again stateside tomorrow (October 27) in Tacoma, WA. There's been no word yet on damage assessments or plans for crowdfunding campaigns to help the band recover.
