Tasty Drama: Upon A Burning Body Frontman "Kidnapped" - But It's A Hoax?

Upon A Burning Body posted this:

"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..."

"Wide awake now... I could've sworn I heard someone in my house.."


Then Ash from Sumerian Records posts this:

"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."



Lmao.

I learned about it because Jungle Rot posted this:

"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
