Attila singer hides from police following injuries
Yesterday, following Attila's Warped Tour set in Denver, Colorado, Attila frontman Chris Fronzak posted a cryptic message via Twitter explaining that he was disappearing temporarily: Fronzak returned to Twitter today to explain what happened:
"Yesterday's show in Denver was amazing, wild, and energetic. While it is NEVER my intention for anybody to be injured in our crowd, sometimes the inevitable happens, especially when you guys are turning the fuck up. Unfortunately for me (the performer) if I tell the crowd to 'go fucking nuts' or 'crowdsurf' or 'start a fucking moshpit' and people get injured, I am now legally liable for 'inciting a riot'. In the midst of yesterday's chaotic and amazing show, a few people unfortunately got injured. At that point I was told that the police may be searching for me for 'inciting a riot' so naturally- I dipped the fuck out. I don't know about you but I don't fuck with police or jail. "I know some of you are disappointed because you feel like I 'ditched' my signings or whatever, but that couldn't be further from the truth. I love my fans and meeting you guys is the highlight of my day, I'm just not trying to get arrested. I just wanna play music, that's all. I'd like to send my sincerest apologies out to anybody that may have gotten hurt during yesterday's performance. My intention was to have 5,000 people crowdsurfing safely to the front. I love and care about all of you and I don't want anyone to get hurt."
