Death metallers Decrepit Birth are going through a tough time. The band was forced to drop from the last few days of the Carnival Of Death Tour with Obituary, Broken Hope, Jungle Rot and Encrust after their rental van was broken into in San Francisco and all of their personal bags with cash, laptop computers, cell phones, passports, and IDs were stolen. Their tour van had caught on fire in Canada and they had to rent a new one, but the worst happened again.

Here's the official statement from the band: "More bad energy has come to us in the form of a theft last night in San Francisco. Our rental van had the side window broken out and all of our personal bags with cash, laptop computers, cell phones, passports, and id's were stolen. This was a major blow to go along with our van catching on fire in Canada and having to leave it there to be junked."

"At this point we will have to regretfully drop from the last few days of tour. The costs are overwhelming at this point, and to continue on would dig an even deeper hole of debt for the band, which we can't afford. We had a great time touring with our brothers in Obituary, Broken Hope, Jungle Rot, and Encrust. These bands we're beyond awesome to us during the past week of issues we've gone through. Thanks to all the fans for coming out and making this such a great tour aside from the bullshit. We gave it our all every night for you, our fans. We're down but not out..."

Is this for real? is it really possible to have such a shitload of bad luck?

When you are slogging it out in van across America you are bound to run into criminals... these are the bands who we should give our respect to, not multi-millionaires who fly to gigs in airliners.

Dang, that's poor luck. This band needs support at this time.
