In the latest installment of the attempted band equipment theft story, A Whisper In The Noise was attacked in Seattle on Tuesday night, March 28th, after wrapping up a show at Neumos. A Whisper In The Noise is currently opening up for Arab Strap on their U.S. tour.
Apparently the band was getting ready to leave after loading up their tour van, when approached by two men. Here's how it was described in a press release:
"Two drunk/drugged out-of-their mind males approached the AWITN van as they were loading the last piece of gear into the truck and enjoying one last smoke before hitting the road. Minutes after Arab Strap left the venue the youths approached the band. They attempted to grab gear and gain entry onto the van. When confronted by the AWITN bandmembers and tour manager, one of the perpetrators pulled a knife and the other sucker punched the tour manager knocking out his front teeth. They then attempted to slash the van tires before leaving the scene. Police arrived after the perpetrators fled the scene and no arrests were made. The tour manager spent the night in the ER having his front teeth temporarily replaced with a temporary bridge."
The whole scene went down outside Neumos, located at 925 East Pike Street. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Seattle Police Department at 206-684-4300.
