Trapped Under Ice Frontman Attacks Fan While On Tour In Europe

Updated: Trapped Under Ice frontman Justice Tripp has issued an apology, which you can read here.

Bootleg video has surfaced online showing the frontman of Baltimore, Maryland hardcore act Trapped Under Ice attacking a fan during a recent tour stop in Europe on the "Rebellion" tour. You can view the video footage of the incident below. More news on this story will be posted as it becomes available. The uploader of the video commented on the incident by saying:

"Trapped Under Ice played a show and a kid who loved the band jumped over the singer (aka pile-on / stagedive) so he could sing-a-long, they both fell down the stage (absolutely no harm to the kid NOR the singer because of this), the singer then hit the kid two times in the face, the kid in defense not really knowing what was going on hit back, then chaos ensued, another member of the band left the stage and together with his singer started severly beating and stomping the kid resulting in a broken jaw that needed surgery. Back on stage the singer says

"I'm not a fucking superhero, don't jump on me, don't you fucking hit me"

"Well this is bullshit because if you are into Hardcore you know that singers get jumped on ALL THE TIME by enthusiastic fans. and the "Don't fucking hit me" shit, well on the video you can clearly see that the singer hits the kid first!"

Now, I've visited this site for quite some time. You know, get my daily Metal news. Never once have I ever posted on this website, but this does it.

You're playing in Europe, where the music scene is devoted. You're a sh**ty hard core band with no security. All the guy wanted to do was sing a long, so you and your guitarist decide to break his jaw for it?

I really hope you come to America. I really hope you come to Florida. I really hope you come to Orlando or Tampa, so I can purposely jump on you and beat the living f***ing sh** out of you. Then beat the sh** out of your guitarist with his own f***ing guitar and target all the hardcore kids.

This sh** is pathetic. If you can't take the heat of being on stage, go suck d*** at a corner instead of playing sh**ty breakdowns.

I know this band will never read this sh**, but I can honestly say this has p***ed me off.

Love Hardcore;especially the mid 80s NY stuff. Seen some pretty violent stuff happen at shows in my time. Never seen a fan get beat up by band though. For a genre that preaches unity ;standing together and all that happy horsesh** bands actions were unacceptable. A HC band naming themselves aftr a Metallica song? Never would have happened back in the day.

You can't get blood from a turnip #8. A little time in a Euro lockup might do the trick though. What's this bum singer expect? Its Hardcore! No barriers;the crowds a part of the show. sh** I saw a pileup 10 feet high at a Agnostic Front show with 25 people on stage back in the day. Its what happens a HC shows. This douche should know that. Like to see him try that sh** here in the sticks on one of our small stages. Hed get beaten; sent on his way;sh** van would have four flats. His sorry a$$ would definitely remember the 603.

Maryland always seems to breed jackasses. The fact that it's some random dude in a "hardcore" band (going two on one against a younger kid isn't hardcore, it's goddamn pathetic) only reinforces the often true stereotype.

There are alot of states that produce Jackasses.....people are people...they are gonna do dumb sh#t and make bad choices.....just like these guys.....spend the money for a bouncer or two if you are gonna do HC shows...IMO...I would do that simply because of my equipment that I spent my hard earned money on.....and lastly, this band is a terrible example to represent MD.....they need to give "Clutch" a call and get their sh#t together.

Sick of it All ;Agnostic Front would never display this type of unprofessionalism. Trapped Under Ices behavior was shameful. Beating up a paying fan! Thinking these jokers have made their last trip to Europe.

Ignore #11. Trolls will be trolls...I will agree with him on one point though. Posting our area codes stating how much we would destroy this guy doesn't accomplish much.

At any rate, I can second the statement made by Tenney(#9 to be specific). I've seen shows by Agnostic Front and Bracewar where there are massive pileups and the bands love the crowd interaction. Sad to see that a hardcore band, or any band for that matter, is acting this way.

They are a great hardcore band, actually with punk roots and a non-breakdown-based sound. But sh**, man, this is NOT hardcore. This is the exact problem everyone has with heavy music today, especially the label 'hardcore.' Being an a$$hole is the opposite of hardcore. Keep your tough guy sh** out of my intelligent, passionate music please.

I am not condoning such behavior at all. However, I do understand. I've liked hardcored since I was 14 and I've been to I don't even know how many shows, as I'm sure all of you have. It's loud, fast, energetic, it gets your adrenaline pumping. Justice Tripp (the lead singer) lost control for a minute and a poor fan had to pay because of it. Granted, a loss of control might be an exaggeration, but you know what I mean. This honestly could happen to anyone of us. I think some sort of Anger Management or other Therapy should be ordered, because nobody's anger threshold should be that low.
