Police have arrested two men, ages 31 and 40, for stealing from all the equipment of London band Noah and the Whale in the midst of its Manchester tour.
Noah and the Whale had stationed its trailer with all of its equipment after a gig last Tuesday, only to find it missing the next day.
Police later recovered the trailer and one amplifier, though dozens more
items remain missing, according to a BBC News report.
Despite all of their losses, which the band lists on its blog, Noah and the Whale have continued forth with their tour. Its sophomore release, First Days of Spring, is out as of yesterday in the United States.
Noah and the Whale have also added three dates to their upcoming North American tour:
2 - New York, N.Y. @ Mercury Lounge
3 - New York, N.Y. @ Mercury Lounge
4 - New York, N.Y. @ Mercury Lounge
