EYEHATEGOD drummer Aaron Hill was robbed and assaulted prior to the band’s scheduled performance in Guadalajara, Mexico Sunday night (July 7).
According to Informador.mx, the 35-year-old musician was attacked by three men and a woman not far from the Forum Independence, the venue where the band was slated to play. The assailants reportedly threatened Hill a knife and left him with a five-centimeter wound on his left side. He is said to be doing fine, although he was unable to play the show.
The concert’s promoter, Show No Mercy Promotions, said on social media that the members of EYEHATEGOD had “a driver at their disposal,” but given the close proximity of the group’s hotel to the venue, Hill opted to walk.
Hill joined EYEHATEGOD in 2013 as the replacement for Joey LaCaze, who died one year earlier.
Prior to hooking up with EYEHATEGOD, Hill played with fellow New Orleans units MISSING MONUMENTS and MOUNTAIN OF WIZARD.
