BRASS AGAINST Banned From NASCAR Venues; Vocalist Issues An Apology For On-Stage Pee Incident

"I am not a shock artist. I always want to put the music first."

BRASS AGAINST Grooves Hard On First New Original Song "Umbra"

Brass Against made headlines for their Welcome To Rockville performance when vocalist Sophie Urista peed on a fan's face on stage. Urista kept saying she really had to use the bathroom, and one willing participant got up on stage and… took it. The band has since apologized and police are currently investigating Urista to make sure nothing illegal happened.

Now Urista has issued her own apology, saying she's not a shock artist and didn't mean to offend anyone.

“Hey everyone. I want to speak to my performance at Rockville metal festival in Daytona. I have always pushed the limits in music and onstage. That night, I pushed the limits too far.

"I love my family, the band, and the fans more than anything and I know some were hurt or offended by what I did. I apologize to them and want them to know that I didn’t mean to hurt them.

"I am not a shock artist. I always want to put the music first. I'm grateful for all of your continued love and support."

Unfortunately, NASCAR spokesperson Ruyssell Branham has also issued a statement saying that Brass Against is banned from any future performances at NASCAR venues.

"Daytona International Speedway doesn't condone the inappropriate actions that took place during Thursday's Welcome to Rockville event. We are working with promoter Danny Wimmer Presents to address the issue. The band will not be included in future programming at NASCAR venues."
