    Is it weird that the first thing I said to myself when I read this was “Wow, Broken Hope is touring? Sweet!” ?

      A little but not unexpected. They’ve been out of the touring scene for a long time, so I can see where you’re coming from.

    Hope this is some sort of bad publicity stunt. Absolutely horrible. What is wrong with people.

      Just to confirm, you are hoping that a person’s throat was slit as a publicity stunt to increase the band’s notoriety, instead of having this insane act committed by some moron with a razor?
