TRASHLIGHT VISION Frontman Assaulted In North Carolina; Band Forced To Pull Off Tour

TRASHLIGHT VISION vocalist/guitarist Acey Slade (ex-MURDERDOLLS) was attacked from behind on Monday, October 16 by an unknown patron and hit several times in the head with a beer bottle inside the bar where the band had performed earlier in the evening. He was treated for a concussion and lacerations to the head, and later released from UNC hospital in Chapel Hill, N.C. Acey continued to perform with the band for the next two nights before seeing a specialist in New York City today (Friday, October 20). Due to blood and fluid on the ear drum, which has now progressed into an infection, the band will have no choice but to pull off the remaining dates with 45 GRAVE. They will pick back up on the road again beginning November 10 at Zakk's in Murfreesboro, N.C.

As previously reported, TRASHLIGHT VISION will release its first album, titled "Alibis and Ammunition", in the U.S. on on November 14 via indie label EVO Recordings. They have toured Europe with STIFF LITTLE FINGERS as well as THE BUZZCOCKS and recently completed their first American tour with former MISFITS singer Michale Graves. In addition, TLV have shared the stage with THE U.K. SUBS, THE WILDHEARTS, and ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN.
