Jeff Loomis Asks Fans For Help After His Band Is Robbed

Jeff Loomis is asking for fans help after his band's van was broken into on Sunday night in St. Louis while the band tours with Soilwork.

Loomis issued the following statement on Monday: "Last night after our show in St. Louis, our tour van was broken into as we were grabbing a bite to eat before our drive to Dallas.

"We were parked in a well lit area in front of the restaurant. In the ten to fifteen minutes that it took for us to order our food and eat, all of our personal items such as laptops, cameras, musical equipment, cell phones, passports and money were stolen.

"We came outside to find the lock on the driver side door popped out of the van, and promptly called the police. A report has been filed and the van was fingerprinted, but the leads don't seem promising. The police stated that this is apparently a common occurrence for the area. We are all in disbelief, but are very fortunate for everyone to be ok.

"After discussing the situation as a group, we would like to try to continue on with this tour. But to be able to do this, we will need your help. We have all taken a huge hit financially, and we cannot continue on without some sort of support. We have set up a paypal account for any amount of donations to assist us for the duration of the tour."

The band have set up as the email address that fans can send donations to.
