Amity Affliction drummer injured at Warped Tour

Australian metalcore/post-hardcore band The Amity Affliction has revealed that drummer Ryan Burt sustained an eye injury while performing at Warped Tour earlier this week, requiring immediate eye surgery. Glass Cloud drummer Chad Hasty will be filling in for the remainder of the tour. Here's the official word:
"During our set at Warped Tour in Portland a few days ago, our drummer Ryan sustained an injury while performing. A piece of his drumstick chipped off going right into his cornea which caused a cut and required immediate eye surgery. We couldn't make it to today's Warped Tour set in San Diego however we'll be back in Pomona. Our mate Chad from Glass Cloud will fill in behind the kit for the rest of the tour. We wish our brother a speedy recovery."

That's unfortunate. I've had drumsticks break off and fly all over the place, but not right in my eye. I'll never forget the time at a show where a tip flew off and landed in some dude's beer. LOL

Dude should have worn googles. What a weird and crappy way to get injured. Hope homeboy gets workers comp.

His eye was injured when he looked out at the audience and the gayness was just too much for his eye to bear

Randy Blythe threw a drumstick shard off the stage and it severed some guy's artery.

anonymous 6/20/2013 11:18:10 PM

Sucks. That kid is an awesome drummer. Bad luck dude.

anonymous 6/21/2013 12:23:08 AM

lmaooo. Wow, this seriously sucks. I can picture drummers in the future with those giant lawn-mower ear muffs to protect hearing, and the laboratory goggles. it's like we're in a god damn woodshop

anonymous 6/21/2013 7:45:42 AM
