Bury Your Dead comments on attack

Bury Your Dead has issued a statement regarding the attack on guitarist Eric Ellis that took place this past weekend. Here you go: "On Saturday night, February 16th, Bury Your Dead guitarist Eric Ellis was a victim of a random attack by six individuals following the band's set at The Rave in Milwaukee, WI. Eric was held at gunpoint while the men hit him multiple times with a baseball bat and hammer. Previous reports of a robbery are false, as the Milwaukee police department has classified it as a "gang initiation." Despite suffering what others would consider serious injuries, Eric and the rest of Bury Your Dead will move forward and continue with their tour alongside Hellyeah and take that into their headlining run with Emmure, The Warriors, and With Blood Comes Cleansing. It will take more than this to stop Bury Your Dead, we'll see you soon."
