[minus.driver] Drummer Matt Donald Severely Injured In Apparent Random Assault, GoFundMe Launched


Matt Donald, drummer of [minus.driver], was recently severely beaten in a parking lot near a walking trail in Roswell, GA. According to local news reports (see here), Donald was thought to have been struck by multiple rocks and hospitalized after the assault, having been put on a ventilator.

The motives beyond the apparent assault are unclear and his cellphone and wallet were not stolen in the incident, which took place on September 15th. Matt‘s brother Devan has stated that his sibling will require long-term medical care after the assault. It has been said that he remains in the hospital with head trauma and significant memory loss.

In light of the mounting hospital bills, a GoFundMe campaign has been launched here. Devan commented of the support they’ve received since the assault:

Matt’s recovery will be long, but his injuries are improving every day. However, we are overwhelmed by the love, support, and well wishes from our family, friends, and the entire community. We can’t wait to tell him about all the kind messages and gestures we have received from EVERYONE, including people we have never even met. It truly is amazing.”

Formerly known as [minus], [minus.driver] found early fame on Farmclub, leading to a record deal with Universal.
