Norma Jean have lost a range of gear following the home robbery of frontman Cory Brandan Putman’s brother and his family.
A host of musical equipment, including a “drum set used during very early Norma Jean days”, was stolen during the break-in.
Norma Jean offered a statement via Facebook:
“Very recently, a really sad individual broke into the house of my brother and his family and robbed them. A lot of music equipment was taken including a drum set used during very early Norma Jean days.
Besides the kit being taken we lost all our bass gear, matt’s other drum set, a lot of other miscellaneous equipment and countless personal items.
Some really cool friends of ours put up a place to donate to at LEAST replace Matt’s drums. If you have a couple bucks and want to help him out, here’s the place. Thanks! – Cory”
Subsequently, an online fundraiser has been launched via youcaring.com.
Norma Jean tour Australia this April.
