August Burns Red Guitarist JB Brubaker Injures Foot While Stage Diving

August Burns Red guitarist JB Brubaker is currently hobbled with foot injury that may be a fracture. Brubaker explains:

"During Every Time I Die's last song at the House of Blues in Dallas, I went to do a 'sweet' stage dive but ended up jumping too far into the crowd, landing in the pit and coming down very hard on my right heel. I haven't been able to walk on it since and I've been hobbeling around on crutches for the time being. Unfortunately, my busted heel keeps me from running around and rocking out like I would like to when we play. I am getting x-rays on Monday and I will find out if it's officially fractured or not.

I wanted to thank everyone for putting up with me and my gimp foot for the past week and for having a good time during our set. I also want to apologize for not being able to go off 100% for you and I promise I'm doing what I can to get this foot of mine back in working order as soon as possible."

Any stage dive you can walk away from is a good stage dive. Hobbling around on crutches doesn't qualify.
