“Heartbroken to announce that I won’t be joining my Traitors brothers this tour for the Attack Attack run.

2 nights ago in Vegas, a man tried to rob me on the way back to my hotel which led to us scrapping & unfortunately breaking my fist on his face during the altercation. Due to the impact of the hits, i have multiple breaks + parts of my hand shattered & chipped which means I will unfortunately need to undergo hand surgery so will have to sit out this run til I’m recovered. Thankfully I’m happy to announce my good friend Harrison Linder will be fillin in for me so make sure to show him love this run 🤘🏽 I will return soon & will be finishing the Traitors album while I’m home. Thanks for the nonstop support & here’s hopefully to a speedy recovery ❤️

*Ive had multiple ppl try to send me money towards my surgery which means the world, bt I don’t believe in taking from our friends/supporters, Bt if you would like to support, feel free to pick up an item from my Merch shop ! Every dollar made will help toward surgery cost 🤘🏽
