Two days into their North American tour, New Zealand death metallers Ulcerate have been robbed. The thieves made off with some of the bands gear, set, and merch. The band states:
"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."
