Talk about your emotional roller-coasters. Stalwart Aussie outfit Closure In Moscow have had what should have been one of their fondest memories — playing a sell-out show to a crowd of energetic Londoners — sullied by the consequent discovery that they had been involuntarily alleviated of the burden of their worldly goods.

In layman's terms, the band "got rolled and got all our passports, clothes, laptops and some personal equipment stolen" following their gig at The Garage, breaking the news on social media this afternoon and — all things considered — remaining remarkably stoic in the face of the setback, chalking up the mishap to "the highs n lows of being in a band".


Played a sold out show in London tonight. Also got rolled and got all our passports, clothes, laptops and some personal equipment stolen. Oh the highs n lows of being a band. Fuck.

Though no physical injury has come to the members — "We're alright, just a little bit shattered," they informed one concerned fan on Facebook — the occurrence is nonetheless a stain on their otherwise successful European tour in honour of new album Pink Lemonade; however, there's no denying that the band are surrounded by a mobile and dedicated fan-base, with comments of support pouring in on Facebook, suggesting everything from crowdfunding campaigns to making conscious merch purchases in order to help recoup the losses.
