In what must be one of the worst cases of equipment theft in recent memory, the boys in Protagonist are reporting that their entire trailer has been stolen only hours before they were set to start recording their upcoming EP with producer Stephen Egerton.

Band member Brian Forst details the band’s losses, as well as their general shock and current state of mind:

“We’re all a little scatter-brained and shocked right now so I don’t even know where to begin, but our trailer was stolen off of our van sometime between 5-7:30am this morning from a Days Inn Airport Hotel/Denny’s parking lot last night in TULSA, OKLAHOMA. The van was parked right side of our hotel room in a very well lit parking lot that the hotel shares with a Denny’s Restaurant. That lot is where the hotel asked us to park it, and the staff at the 24-hour Denny’s told us the van would be safe there as well. But we were wrong. The pin lock was somehow removed, the chains were cut, and no trace of the trailer was left behind. We drove 18 hours straight from Florida to Tulsa,OK to record with Stephen Egerton. We were supposed to start early this morning hence pulling into town yesterday evening.”

If anyone has any information, the band is requesting that they please email PROTAGONISTSTOLENGEAR@GMAIL.COM, or call Brian at (561)212-9879
