Over the weekend, a group of robbers tried to rob Archspire of their equipment while the band were asleep – thankfully though, one of the members woke up in time!

The technical death metal band Archspire are currently on tour with Entheos, Inferi, and Vulvodynia. During the night while in Austin, Texas, robbers attempted to steal from Archspire’s trailer while the band were asleep. Band drummer Spencer Prewett thankfully woke up in time and stopped the robbery from taking place. News of this attempted robbery comes from the Archspire Facebook page.

Per a post the band shared on their Facebook page:


“We had our van parked in a hotel parking lot, and two trucks rolled up and started trying to detach our trailer from our van. Luckily our drummer Spencer was sleeping in the back, he woke up and scared the shit out of them and they peeled off. We were SO CLOSE to having our entire touring rig stolen, including merch, gear, clothing, everything.
What were trying to say, is EVERY NIGHT ON THIS TOUR COULD BE OUR LAST so if you’re on the fence about coming to a show, DON’T SLEEP ON GETTING TICKETS!!!”

That is some wild shit! But thankfully, the guys in Archspire and their equipment are safe.
