“All our instruments were in there as well as our hand-built confetti canons which are irreplaceable,” ISO frontman Richard Brokensha told Rolling Stone.

He also told Muse Online that the whole band is feeling down because their whole lives were in the trailer.

“We don’t think it was musicians – that would be strange.”

The band has asked the public to send them any information about their gear and trailer on their Facebook page.

They played at Durban’s Live – The Venue with December Streets last Friday despite the setback.

They said: “You can steal everything we have but you can’t stop us from playing.”
