Decrepit Birth frontman Bill Robinson is seriously injured after an attempt at a stage dive went horribly wrong.
The band were performing at the Glass House in Pomona, CA on October 13th, when mid-song, Bill thought it'd be a great idea to stage dive. Only one problem: nobody thought it would be a great idea to catch him. Bill parted the crowd like he was Moses parting the Red Sea, and then snapped his femur on his leg so bad they had to stop the show.
Video footage captured the moment, although not the fall, that this happened:

#Repost @instar0r ・・・ Just watched the singer of @decrepitbirth jump of the stage and snap his leg. The paramedics had to come and take him to the ER. His last words before being wheeled away “you fuckers should have caught me” 🤣😂 #metalheads #metalhead #theglasshouse #pamona #techdeath #technicaldeathmetal #decrepitbirth #stagedive #metalshow #blastbeats #extrememetal
Bill's last words before being stretchered out was "you fuckers should have caught me."
As a result, the band have announced they are unable to participate in the next four shows of the tour, but will be back on the road after that no matter what.
ATTENTION! Bill broke his femur on Saturday while performing at the Glass House in Pomona, California. He was seriously injured and was rushed to the hospital where he is getting surgery done for his leg. Unfortunately we will miss the next 4 or so shows while we wait with him at the hospital. We will catch back up with the tour asap and finish this off even if we have to wheel Bill out in a wheelchair on stage. He says whatever it takes! Which is pretty fucking crazy!
Get remaining dates for the tour here.
We're sure Bill's medical bills are racking up, so try and support the band by picking up some merch as well.
