In a case of life imitating art, a day after Broken Hope released a pretty gruesome new music video, a fan in attendance at their show in El Paso was injured severely after having his throat slashed by a box-cutter.

The band posted the following on their Facebook page about the incident last night:

No further information is available currently, but obviously this is really shitty news. I can’t in my right mind imagine a scenario where this was an “accident.” This is a dispicable act and I hope whomever was responsible was caught and tried for the heinous act that he committed. In spite of the vague reference in the beginning of the post, I don’t think the band is responsible based on creating gruesome imagery. People should be able to separate entertainment from reality.

Our thoughts are with the victim.
