Upon A Burning Body posted this (https://www.facebook.com/uponaburningbody/posts/10152290501309582):

"Breaking News: Danny Leal (singer of Upon A Burning Body) has been reported missing. He was last seen in his home town of San Antonio TX on Monday, June 30th."

This was after their lead singer posted these two updates:

"This same sketchy car has been driving past my house over and over for the past 3 days straight..." (https://www.facebook.com/dannylealjr/posts/473989032744555)

"Wide awake now... I could've sworn I heard someone in my house.." (https://www.facebook.com/dannylealjr/posts/474039402739518)

Then Ash from Sumerian Records posts this (https://www.facebook.com/SumerianRecords/posts/10152577499546908):

"I woke up to a ton of missed calls and just saw all this stuff about Danny Leal of UABB posing as that he's been abducted or kidnapped. My phone hasn't stopped ringing since. As a child, we all learn the story "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" and it sticks within our consciousness for a reason. I do not condone this type of publicity stunt. This was done behind my back and I am not OK with it. In my eyes, there's never a time to use the possibility of real-life abduction, injury or murder of someone you care about to promote anything, especially an album. If you need to resort to that, then you have lost the plot. We as a society should have evolved past that way of thinking by now and especially within the rock/metal community, given all the tragedy that has happened in our world over the past few years. There are some people who owe us an apology. -Ash Avildsen, Creator & CEO of Sumerian Records."

:party::party::party::party:

Lmao.

I learned about it because Jungle Rot posted this (https://www.facebook.com/igotjunglerot/posts/10152539483049936):

"You will NEVER see Jungle Rot sink so low as to fake a kidnapping in order to promote our band. Fucking losers.

They just posted a link to a new song (i'm assuming it's a new song, i don't follow this shit) on Sumerian's YouTube, so it looks like it was all a publicity stunt and Sumerian was in on it?

Fucking dumb. Hope people boo them on Mayhem Fest

Mayhem got winners w/ these tools & that other shit band that "allegedly" assaulted a guy. King something. Idk. They're shit. Doesn't matter.

What sucks the most is that nothing's going to happen.

Sumerian won't reprimand them at all - they're too popular.

They won't drop off Mayhem Fest and the tour is already filled with their douchebag fans due to how shitty it is this year.

I'm not sure what is sadder, this incident or their fans defending these actions.

I really don't get how people can support this shit. Musically or the people who do this kind of shit.

UABB are one of the worst bands I've ever seen.

Douches who wear tuxs in 110 degree weather and sing about Texas.

It seems the group Corrections House has had a similar tragedy befall them: CORRECTIONS HOUSE minister of propaganda, Seward Fairbury, has turned up missing from his place of residence this week in California after an apparently violent confrontation within his home. CORRECTIONS HOUSE member, Scott Kelly said, “The last time I had any contact with Seward was ten weeks ago; it’s not uncommon to not see him for weeks at a time, but he always keeps us in the loop with a postcard or a phone call about once a month. We went by his trailer and it was completely trashed; it looked like there had been a serious disturbance. If you’ve ever met Seward, you know he’s mean as fuck and he isn’t gonna go anywhere he doesn’t want too. We’re reaching out through our connections and through Seward’s extensive family and trying to figure out what is going on.” The Lake Co. Sheriff’s office has issued a simple but ominous statement saying that the matter is under investigation but that they expect no cooperation from the Fairbury family, from his friends, or his neighbors in the the matter whatsoever.

CORRECTIONS HOUSE will soldier on without Fairbury, and continue to do work. They are releasing a live record due out this Fall entitled Writing History In Advance through War Crime Recordings, will continue to work on their next full length due out in early 2015 and will appear at the Roskilde Festival in Copenhagen, Denmark this Friday, July 4th. Additionally, the band will support Sleep for two nights in Chicago on August 28th and 29th at Thalia Hall.

Tee hee. Well played. :fist:

Buz is the fuckin man.

As for this incident, Upon a Burning Body should just be ashamed of themselves. I don't give a shit if you're trying to drum up buzz for your new album, This about as low as you can go for a publicity stunt. I hope people boo and heckle these despicable clowns at every show on Mayhem Fest.

In a perfect world this will turn into a Crazy Town at Ozzfest situation and they'll drop off within a week or 2.

Five Finger Death Punch appeared to do a similar thing in like 2009 or something, and they suffered no consequences unfortunately.

The worst part about this is that it makes me side with Frankie Palmeri.
