IF YOU WANT BLOOD, RADIO MOSCOW’S GOT IT! BAND SELF-DESTRUCTS AMID BLOODY ONSTAGE ASSAULT
Hostile screaming. Projectile guitars. Open head-wounds. And plenty of blood. Radio Moscow’s live shows have long been known to be explosive, but last Saturday night at the start of their North American tour the band, unintentionally, took it to new heights as they had a physical meltdown onstage during their hometown record release show in Ames, IA. With internal friction between the threesome at a fever-pitch, the band made it to the final song of their setlist before things came to a head. Literally. The drummer grabbed frontman Parker Griggs guitar and, according to Griggs, hurled it as hard as he could at the guitarist, leaving a gaping wound in his forehead and blood everywhere. Griggs was then rushed to the local emergency room, where he received 14 stitches.
