Trophy Eyes Shutdown Concertgoer Angry Over Moshing & Crowd Surfing During Their Live Set: “F*ck You”


Australian post-hardcore band Trophy Eyes have been out on the road touring with pop punkers Against The Current as of late. The somewhat disparate styles of the two bands has apparently led to some friction amid concertgoers attending the trek.

One attendee at the band’s April 23rd show at The Masquerade in Atlanta, GA recently called out Trophy Eyes on social media afterwards. Specifically they singled out Trophy Eyes vocalist John Floreani, who’s repeated calls for moshing and crowd surfing were apparently not appreciated. The concertgoer in question offered:

“First time I ever heard of you guys was the concert in Atlanta tonight and the lead singer kept encouraging mosh pits and crowd surfing, which made the majority of us, who were there for Against the Current, feel very unsafe and have to go to the sidelines, which is not fair because we were there before your crazy fans.

I almost had a panic attack. I didn’t even get the chance to find out if I liked your songs because I had to keep worrying about getting kicked in the head.”

After several exchanges were shared amongst other commenters, Trophy Eyes themselves commented on the matter, offering the succinct reply of “fuck you” to the disgruntled concertgoer. The comments were made on this post. Replying to the band’s stern response, the concertgoer in question offered:

“lol just the reply I expected from a band that encourages people hurting each other. Let me fix it for you: “we’re sorry, we suck”. There. Screenshots are forever, btw, so you can erase your comment in the morning, but it’s too late.”
