STAIND frontman Aaron Lewis had some choice words for a member of the audience who attended the Edgefest VIII festival in Little Rock, Arkansas this past Saturday, August 18.
After several fans were seen throwing mud up on stage during STAIND‘s performance at the event, Lewis took a moment to address the crowd and express his dissatisfaction with the proceedings. “All right. So, obviously we’re children and we can’t play in the mud,” he began, before pointing out one member of the audience who was apparently particularly disruptive during the concert. “You in the baseball hat right there, with the fucking long hair that’s hiding his face, I see you lump up one more mudball and throw it at the fucking stage, I’m gonna have every motherfucker around you kick the fucking shit out of you,” he continued. “Yeah, you right there. Fuckin’ moron.”
Video footage of the incident can be seen below. Another clip is available on the KDJE web site.
STAIND plans to go on hiatus after completing the touring cycle for its self-titled seventh album, according to Billboard.com. But Lewis says that the band is not breaking up, telling The Pulse Of Radio that it’s just time for a breather. “We’ve got this next tour and we might do something next year and then, you know, we’re going to take a little break for a second,” he said. “We’re not breaking up. We’re not gonna stop making music. We’re just going to take a little hiatus that really hasn’t ever been taken in our career.”
STAIND is co-headlining this summer’s Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival tour, which kicked off on August 17 in Bonner Springs, Kansas.
