HED P.E.'s Van And Gear Trailer Ripped Off; Band Vows To Continue Touring

February 27, 2009

Despite recently having its van and gear trailer stolen in Burbank, California, HED P.E. is out to prove it cannot be silenced. The thieves made off with thousands of dollars of gear, merchandise and the group's tour van. The band is forging on and has announced the second leg of its "New World Orphans" tour alongside MOWER, DIRTBALL and DGAF, which will begin March 6 in Petaluma, California.

"Renegade", the new video from HED P.E., can be viewed below. The clip was shot in Los Angeles, California with directors Philip Carrier and Chad Archibald (ARISE AND RUIN) of Black Fawn Films.

Commented HED P.E. frontman Jared Gomes: "'Renegade' is a fight song. That's what HED P.E. is known for. Fighting the lies and fighting the powers that be. Already thousands of our fans have been logging into NewWorldOrphans.com to download and back the new single. The video features a story line that follows a punk-rock kid as he confronts adversity. Our band represents the orphans of the system and our new album, 'New World Orphans' (NWO),is another chapter in the book of truth. We use our music to open young minds and spark a deeper understanding of the world around us."

"New World Orphans" was released in three different versions, each featuring a different cover and four different bonus tracks not available anywhere else. Each of the three versions also contains part of a hidden message that when deciphered allows fans to communicate directly with the band during HED P.E.'s tour.

HED P.E. recently launched a interactive web community for fans online at NewWorldOrphans.com where they interact and get content from the band's upcoming CD. The site offers fans an inside look into the New World Order and other government conspiracies that are the centerpiece of the album.
