It's just a flesh wound

AEW would like to extend an extra special thank you to everyone who came to our amazing CD release show last night at the EARL. Bases Loaded and Pistolero brought the thunder and we were well on our way to the best AEW show of all time… until THE INCIDENT!

For those of you who weren’t there, the show was cut short after our fourth song, “Pandamonium”. Someone in the audience (most likely a jealous ex-girlfriend or a whack-job animal rights activist) seemed to take umbrage at the thought of us killing the baby panda. A glass was thrown, my wrist was cut, and, before any of us really knew what was happening, the show was over.

In all seriousness, the whole thing was just an unfortunate drunken accident. I am fine. The cut was very deep, hence the giant puddle of blood on stage, but luckily it didn’t hit any important stuff. After three hours in the Emory ER (Shout out to Dr. Deb!) and seven stitches (2 inside, 5 outside), I am well on my way to a full recovery.

If you were at the show, pictures from our photo booth will be posted soon, so check back here to see your smilin' face. If you didn’t get a CD last night, I’m really sorry. There was a lot of confusion after I left the stage and I was too busy bleeding on my shoes to come back out. We will figure out a way to make this up to you very soon.

Thanks to everyone who’s called, texted, emailed, myspaced, and facebooked. It’s AEWsome to know you care. Also thanks to the staff of the EARL, Dr. Albert, J. Chris and anyone else who helped me out last night.

We will be booking another Atlanta show soon to make up for all the rocking you guys missed out on. Next time, however, we will be playing behind eight feet of chicken wire.
