Stolen Guitars Recovered!...and other news...

Back in January of 2010 we reported that there was a break in at one of BRMC's storage lockers and all of Michel Been's vintage guitars and keep-sakes were stolen. We are thrilled to report that over a year later, almost all the stolen items have been recovered!
A fan of BRMC and The Call noticed one of the guitars for sale on eBay that turned out to be Michael's signature Ampeg Fretless Bass and through that information and with the aid of the LAPD and some other helpful sources, all the stolen instruments have been returned and the prime suspect apprehended.
The band would like to thank everyone out there that helped scour the internet and spread the word of this theft and are so appreciative that these items have made it home.
If it hadn't been for all of you, these instruments would've probably been lost forever.

The order page for "Live In London" is back up on BRMC's Official Web-Site.
All physical copies of the DVD are out of stock sold out, but the film itself is now available as a digital download. If you have already ordered one of the packages that contains the physical you will still be receiving your DVD and all past-due orders should be shipped out by the end of this week.
The "Deluxe Package" now includes the exclusive t-shirt, the limited edition color 3-Disc Vinyl set, the digital download of the "Live In London" film and audio in place of the physical DVD.
The video is available as a stand-alone download as well and also comes with the audio file.

We have added a new blog section to the Official Web-Site that is updated and maintained by long time cohort and BRMC supporter iAN Ottaway. If you haven't stopped by the section, take a gander and send him some questions or just be a student. Many of you may recognize him from the countless shows he has made his presence known and felt at.
Please note that subject matter on this page is not suitable for children, nor is it recommended for some adults. While visiting 'Ask iAN,' we ask participants to please refrain from using discretion, as it will only make matters worse - especially after 1am.

Now that the new BRMC Web-Store is up and running our friends at BandMerch have help us go through all the old orders that were taken but never shipped due to the unexpected shut-down of the store at the end of last year.
There are a handful of orders that never made it out to people and we hope to have all those orders processed and shipped out by April 22nd.
BRMC is sorry that this happened and wants to assure everyone that BandMerch is shipping all new orders quickly.
There will be some new bundles and items coming over the next few weeks too and throughout the summer so keep checking in with the store.
