Pro-Pain Vocalist Assaulted And Robbed In Brussels

Pro-Pain has officially cancelled upcoming tour dates after vocalist / bassist Gary Meskil was violently assaulted and robbed in Brussels earlier this week. The band issued this update via Facebook:

"This past Monday night, Gary was the victim of a robbery and attempted murder in Brussels. He was pick-pocketed of cash, credit card, and passport, struck on the head with an ice pick and then subsequently attacked by a gang of individuals.

"The police have confiscated more than one weapon and they have established the identities of some of the suspects. Gary was quickly admitted to ICU after suffering head trauma (including several fractures to his face and jaw) and massive blood loss.

"Since then he has stabilized and is trying his best to recover, but future surgery may be necessary. We regret to inform the fans that the shows scheduled for Roeselare (July 7th) and Osnabruck (July 8th) are now officially cancelled.

"We will make sure to keep you all informed of any other cancellations and on Gary's progress. Thanks for your support at this difficult time."

Ow!! Struck on the head with an ice Pick. That really sucks, but could have ended even worse. I hope he heals fully and writes a bad a$$ song or two about it.

This sucks....pro-pain is a pretty good band and I like a lot of their albums....the article doesn't say, but since it was a gang attack I'd bet dollars to donuts that the robbers were probably some of the african immigrants currently enriching Europe with the blessings of diversity....
