After The Burial’s Gear & Merch Stolen

After The Burial recently lost some gear and merch during a robbery. The thieves made off with the items after breaking into drummer Dan Carle’s storage space in Virginia, MN.

Carle commented:

“I’ve been informed of some bad news today. I store my band’s touring gear locally in Virginia, MN. Unfortunately someone has broke into where I keep everything and robbed a handful of valuable gear along with After The Burial merchandise. A police report has been filed but I just wanted to put the word out to everyone and let you know what items were taken in case anyone spots them around town. These are the items:

– (4) Elation Protron 3K LED Strobes
– (1) Mesa Boogie 6X10 Traditional Bass Cab
– Tons of After The Burial merchandise, t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets and cds that were never available online, they were tour exclusive merch.

If anyone sees any of these items around town, I’d appreciate it so very much if you could message me the details so I can be a better help to the police in tracking down the culprits. The circumstances of the theft make it obvious more than one person was involved. Theft is a very big problem in the area and the most important thing to me is tracking these people down so that it doesn’t happen to anyone else. Thank you and I hope to see you all again soon.”

Concert Review: Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, After The Burial, & Vein In San Francisco, CA

Last night (April 18), I caught Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, After The Burial, and Vein on the first date of the “Collapse The World Tour” and it was an awesome show.

Vein kicked off the night with a heavy and chaotic set that left members of the audience mesmerized. The band goes hard with piercing screams, high jumps, and full on hardcore insanity. A highlight from their set was “Virus://Vibrance.”

Once Vein finished up, it was time for After The Burial to take the stage. The progressive metallers powered through a ferocious set with impeccable musicianship and killer vocals. The crowd was going crazy as the group prepared them for the impending co-headliners. Highlights from their set included “Behold The Crown” off their new album “Evergreen,” which was released today (April 19), and “A Wolf Amongst Ravens.”

Soon it was time for Parkway Drive to storm the stage. The Australian metalcore giants were perhaps the strongest act of the night. Their set consisted of mostly newer material from their 2018 album “Reverence” and their 2015 album “Ire” with several older songs thrown in for good measure. The band’s catchy riffing and thunderous drums had everyone moving as frontman Winston McCall led the charge with an unmatched intensity. Highlights from their set included: “Vice Grip,” “Wild Eyes,” “Crushed,” “Bottom Feeder,” and the haunting “Cemetery Bloom.”

After Parkway Drive, it was time for the metalcore titans in Killswitch Engage to close out the evening. The band played a pretty balanced set with songs spanning their 20 year career and the crowd loved every second of it. Between guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz hilarious onstage antics and Jesse Leach’s powerful vocals, it was entertaining the whole way through. Highlights from their set included: “My Curse,” “My Last Serenade,” “Hate By Design,” “Always,” which was dedicated to a fan named Chopper who is sadly battling terminal brain cancer, and “Strength Of The Mind.”

All in all, it was an amazing show and if you have a chance to make it to one of the dates on this tour it will definitely be worth your while.
