Such Gold Vocalist Stabbed

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (04/25/11)
Such Gold were forced to drop off the Manscout Jamboree Tour due to frontman Ben Kotin being stabbed. Skylar from Building will be filling in on vocals for their upcoming tour. A statement from Kotin can be found in the replies. We wish him a speedy recovery.

StatementFirst of all I would like to apologize for pulling out of the Manscout Jamboree tour so last minute but I assure you that we would not bail on such an amazing tour without a good reason. There have been a lot of rumors flying around the Internet and I think it’s about time to clarify things. About three weeks ago I was stabbed multiple times outside of a party. I can’t go into any details but I will say that I’m lucky to be alive. I want to thank all my friends and band mates who saved my life. I’m very sorry to leave you all to decipher whether the rumors were true or not for so long but I felt it was necessary to keep to myself for a certain period of time.

There’s no telling exactly when I will be well enough to perform again but Such Gold will be doing some dates in the month of May with one of my best friends Skylar, from an awesome Massachusetts based band called Building, filling in for me. I ask that you treat him with as much respect as you would me or anyone in this band. Again I’m very sorry to leave you to speculate on what happened for so long. I can’t wait to get back on the road and hang with all the amazing friends and fans that I’ve met over these past few years. I also want to thank everyone who did know about this for their love and support throughout these past few weeks. Every day I wish we could be hanging out with The Wonder Years, Fireworks, Make Do And Mend and Living With Lions but soon enough Such Gold will be coming back harder than ever and I can’t wait!

that's crazy. I wonder what he was doing to get himself stabbed. He probably could/should have provided more details, cuz I don't know if he was an innocent victim or if he drunkenly assaulted someone, or what not. Either way, I hope he recovers soon, stays out of trouble, and is able to get back to singing with the band asap.

So crazy, hes such a nice guy. That had to of been the wrong place at the wrong time, he doesn't seem like much of a shit starter from the times I saw them.

Edit: I hope this tour gets one-uped and actually comes near me.
