Halfway into their tour with Bad Sounds, and Indoor Pets’ tour van was robbed in Manchester.
“It’s been a rough 24 hours,” they explain from the road. “It has only started to sink in that thousands of pounds worth of equipment that we’ve slowly been upgrading over the last 10 years (not to mention irreplaceable personal possessions) seem to be gone forever.”
“We didn’t want to start a fundraising campaign without being able to give you something in return,” they add. “Introducing the “I HELPED INDOOR PETS BUY THEIR GEAR BACK, INDOOR PETS HELPED ME DRY THIS SOAPY STACK” tea towel.”
You can pick up the tea towel here; it’s pay what you want, with a minimum donation of £5. Or you could just donate a few quid without getting the tea towel, it’s up to you.
Indoor Pets recently announced details of their debut album; ‘Be Content’will be released on 8th March via their new home, Wichita Recordings.

We don’t like asking for help without giving something back.
