Drive A Victims Of Strange Bus Break-In While In Chicago On Rock Allegiance Tour with Papa Roach and P.O.D.

Our sources have informed us that Los Angeles’ Drive A were the victims of a bizarre bus break-in earlier this week in downtown Chicago, while on a break from their run on the Rock Allegiance Tour with Buckcherry, Papa Roach, Puddle of Mud, P.O.D., Red and Crossfade.

 

This past Tuesday night, as band members and crew slept on their bus while parked in an underground garage located in an area frequented by transients, an unidentified person entered the vehicle and made off with money, food, booze, clothing and an iPod, while leaving their gear untouched.

 

The band is taking it in stride, as front Bruno Mascolo explains, “I guess to make it in music these days you have to fully commit yourself, even if it means your home away from home being raided by homeless people on occasion. That being said, the next homeless person that asks us for change, we will be checking his pocket for our ipod. I’m just glad everyone is okay.”

Via Revolver Magazine 

Hailing from Merrimack Valley region of Massachusetts, POWERWOLVES unleash their own brand of heavy, metallic hardcore. With the release of their demo in the spring of 2010, POWERWOLVES played any and every show they were offered, appearing nonstop throughout the Northeast and garnering themselves a solid following. POWERWOLVES began recording their debut full-length in early 2011 at Format Audio with Ryan Stack (LATE NITE WARS, THE EFFORT). Titled, You Won’t Find Peace, the album was released on Panic Records on August 30th.

You Won’t Find Peace displays everything that you’ve come to love in a hardcore band-brutality, heaviness, aggression, and intelligent lyrics. You Won’t Find Peace from beginning to end is sure to wreck your life. It’s only a matter of time before POWERWOLVES find themselves referenced alongside bands like RINGWORM, THE HOPE CONSPIRACY, and PULLING TEETH, as they are just that good.
