Contrast The Water vocalist hospitilised after attack and robbery
It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform you that Barry Drewett, front man and vocalist for Contrast The Water, was brutally attacked and robbed on Monday 13 July 2009.
He sustained a severe concussion, three fractured ribs, neck and spinal injuries. He was released from hospital on Wednesday.
Due to the various injuries he sustained, he will be unable to perform for the next 2 months, as any pressure on his brain can cause an embolism, aneurysm, or a full blown stroke.
What has taken nearly four years of sustained devotion, has nearly been destroyed in a matter of four minutes!
The guys are deeply shocked, and are extremely heart broken, as these actions, have cost them the European Tour they were so looking forward too, and had put countless hours of preparation into.
"We wish our tour buddies Warthane and Sacrifist all the best, and know you will be giving Germany a good taste of what SA Metal is all about!
"This time off for CTW will not go to waste, as the rest of the guys are going to write our second album, and when Barry has recuperated, he will lay vocal tracks down for this project.
"The guys want you all to know that this in no way will effect the longevity of CTW, and if anything has made them more determined!" said Delia Drewett, manager for the group.
As the code of Metal states:
"AN INJURY TO ONE, IS AN INJURY TO ALL"
Contrast The Water will be back... and this time they are gonna be really PISSED OFF!
