A GoFundMe page has been launched on behalf of Russian Circles, who were the victims of a massive gear theft earlier this week.

The fund-raiser – which raised nearly $17,000 in an hour after it went live, and now sits at over $60,000 – was created by the band's manager Cathy Pellow to help mitigate the financial losses incurred by the band.
