Carlisle Psych band The Lucid Dream have launched a crowdfunding campaign to replace the equipment stolen from their van this week in Paris.

Writing on their page, the band said:

After our gig at Supersonic in Paris (2/3/2017) we unfortunately fell victim to the recent spate of robberies occuring on bands vans.

We have lost a huge amount of equipment, most of which holds great sentimental value to all of us and is irreplacable. Some of this gear has belonged to us since we were 14years old and some we have worked our backsides off to buy.  Please see below for a full list of stolen equipment.

As everyone knows music is what we live for and it breaks our hearts to think of letting the band suffer because of the act of some ignorant thieves.

We hope, with a little help from our friends and fans, that we can look to replace some of the equipment we have lost so that we can continue to gig and record music.  We have been blown away with the show of support from everyone so far  and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Fans and well-wishers can donate via PayPal on
