BURY YOUR DEAD Member Robbed, Beaten After Performing

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a member of the Boston hardcore/metal band BURY YOUR DEAD was robbed in Milwaukee early today after performing at the Rave with HELLYEAH, MACHINE HEAD and NONPOINT.

The 23-year-old member of the band — said to be guitarist Eric Ellis — was sitting in a car at 12:30 a.m. when he was held up by five men, two with guns, police said. The bandmember, who was not identified, handed over a bag of jewelry, and the robbers fled from the lot, near N. 24th St. and W. Wisconsin Ave.

The musician gave chase and caught up with the robbers but was kicked by them, suffering a cut to the head, police said.

No one was arrested and police did not release a detailed description of the suspects.
