GOD FORBID Forced To Cancel Appearance At Heavy MTL Due To Stolen Passport!

Unfortunately, nowadays some asshole people think that it is cool to steal from musicians and this needs to stop! On Friday (July 27), during the Trespass America festival tour stop in San Antonio, Texas, GOD FORBID's guitar badass Doc Coyle got some of his valuables stolen. Here is what Coyle posted on his Facebook and Twitter pages:

"So two days ago in San Antonio, someone stole my bag out of our dressing room with my MacBook pro laptop, iPod, hard drive, headphones, passport, toiletries, etc. It was in a beat up Swiss Gear backpack. If anyone who was there saw anything suspicious or lives in the area recognizes any of these items, please let me know. I do everything with my computer. Communicate, create music. This sucks big time, but it's just stuff. I am lucky I have my health. So many are less fortunate. #gratitude"

As of right now, Coyle hasn't gotten and of his stuff back, including his passport. As a result, the band has been forced to cancel their appearance this weekend at Heavy MTL! Here is the band statement regarding this matter:

GOD FORBID is sorry to have to cancel their performance at this years Heavy MTL ! Due to reasons beyond our control! (Remember when Doc's bag was stolen, his passport was in the bag!) Read more about this incident HERE!
