Things were going well for Silverstein and its bassist Billy Hamilton on Warped Tour. At least right up until July 7 in Camden, NJ, when Gwar's Beefcake The Mighty came out on stage and straight up killed Hamilton right in front of the crowd.

While the murder was cold-blooded and very public, it helps that Beefcake is also a bassist… so all's well that ends well! Speaking of Gwar, if you haven't hear their new song "Fuck This Place" yet, you really need to get on that. View the remainder of the tour dates here.
