Despite the loss, the band says it will play the remaining dates of its headlining tour which also includes Deas Vail and Jenny Owen Youngs.

From Mae:

“This morning we woke up to find our van, trailer, all instruments, equipment and merchandise had been stolen from the hotel parking lot. This misfortune has fallen among many of our friends in the past and after touring for 8 years this sort of thing is bound to happen. We have four dates left on our tour and will play the shows with the help of our friends in Deas Vail and Jenny Owen Youngs. It’s in these moments that our fans lift us up and remind us why we do what we do. We thank you for the immediate outpouring of love and support.”

Mae, which features Dave Elkins (lead vocals/guitars), Jacob Marshall (drums) and Zach Gehring (guitar) has rented transportation for the last four dates of the band’s current tour – tonight in Cambridge at Middle East; NYC at The Fillmore at Irving Plaza Nov. 6; S. Hackensack at School of Rock Nov. 7 and Washington at Black Cat Nov. 8.

The band is currently accepting donations from fans. For more information, please click here for Mae’s Web site.
