Thieves Steal Havok’s Gear

Thieves managed to break into Havok’s trailer and stole a bunch of the band’s gear. If you want to help them out, you can donate at venmo.com.

The band said the following:

“Our European tour was a ton of fun! We’d like to thank Converge, Gorguts, Revocation, Fallujah, Venom Prison, and Amon Amarth for sharing the stage with us, as well as everyone who came out to these shows to support live music. Without the fans, there is no show.

We returned home to some unfortunate news… Our trailer was broken into and our gear was stolen. The thieves broke our trailer door and got away with custom drums, cymbals, discontinued amplifiers, custom road cases, merchandise, and a new generator. This news hits us doubly hard because we already had expensive vehicle repairs to make before hitting the road this Thursday for the Metal Alliance Tour. This seems to be a kind of sadistic alignment of the stars that’s left us high and dry, and we need help getting out of this hole.

The band has dealt with major losses in the past, but always figured out a way to solve the problem on our own; this time it’s overwhelming. Havok has never asked fans for financial help before, but if there was ever a time to do that – it is now. To be frank, we are boned, and we cannot afford to replace the gear that was stolen AND fix our vehicle. We tour our asses off and still aren’t rich, by any means. This is the first time we are asking fans to donate to our cause of riffs and truth in the name of heavy metal.

We are trying to raise $19,000 to replace the gear that was stolen and help with our vehicle maintenance. Touring is our lifeblood and without our gear and vehicle, we cannot do it.

If you enjoy the music we make, or seeing us live, please consider making a donation. Every little bit helps. We have started a Venmo account where you can send donations easily online. (It only takes 1 minute to sign up.) https://venmo.com/havokband
(If Venmo is unavailable in your area, you can donate via PayPal : petewebb2@yahoo.com)

We would like to thank you in advance for sharing this, spreading the word, and supporting Havok. Without fans we are nothing, and we know that.
Love, wisdom, and riffs to you,
–HAVOK“

Havok Premiere New Song “Ingsoc”

Havok have premiered a new song titled “Ingsoc.” The song is from their new album “Conformicide,” which will be released on March 10.

The track is inspired by George Orwell’s novel “1984,” with David Sanchez having said the following:

“1984 takes place in a socialist hell wherein there is perpetual war, government-sanctioned propaganda, massive gaps between the rich and poor, and “Big Brother” spies on every citizen. It appears that Orwell was not just a novelist, but a prophet; as “Ingsoc” has become all too real. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”

Havok Premiere New Song “Hang ‘Em High”

Havok have premiered a new song titled “Hang ‘Em High.” The song is from their new album “Conformicide,” which will be released on March 10.

Justis Mustaine Comments On Dropping Havok From Upcoming Megadeth Tour

As previously reported, Havok were dropped off the upcoming Megadeth, Amon Amarth, Suicidal Tendencies, and Metal Church tour, due to an apparent contract negotiation between them and Mustaine Management that went wrong. Now, Dave Mustaine’s son Justis, who runs Mustaine Management has commented on the situation:

“I worked with Havok for one year. Despite getting Havok paid, marketed and exposed in that time- bringing them a new merch deal, booking agent, and overseeing what has clearly been their biggest year yet – I was compensated poorly for my work. I finally put a contract in front of them, which would secure me 15% of income (the industry standard). They refused to agree, so I dropped them. I wish Havok all the best in their efforts to be a professional band, but as evidenced by today’s gossip-mongering, they’ve still got a long way to go.
Great music, great band!”
