The PUNKVOTER/JADE TREE UNITED TOUR is heading into it’s third week and the bizarre injury list is ever growing. First up Brad of FROM ASHES RISE fame, during one of his patented rock kicks, came down hard on his ankle sending the lanky front man limping into the hospital and back out on crutches with a badly sprained foot. Then CHALLENGER’S Jessica Hopper, in a freak sleeping bag accident, cut her cornea and spent the night in a Chicago emergency room getting fitted for an eye patch. Luckily neither would dream of packing it in after such minor diversions as Brad spent the very next night slaying the crowd from a club barstool, and Hopper proudly fronted her new pirate patch look while CHALLENGER killed it at their sold out record release show at the Fireside Bowling Alley. STRIKE ANYWHERE have yet to befall any serious injuries (knock on wood) and the tours newest addition, Kentucky’s BREATHER RESIST, will be hitting the stage every night this week with their fingers crossed.
More news later, now get out and see the tour, as it doesn’t get anymore dangerous than this…period!
