You may remember recently that Cannibal Corpse guitarist Pat O'Brien had been arrested for a bizarre series of events which saw his house burn down while he broke into another family's home, pushed a woman to the ground and then charged at an officer with a knife.
Since then, O'Brien has been freed after posting his set $50,000 bail, while it's also reported that police excecuted a search warrant on his damaged home to find a shit-ton of weapons including 50 shotguns, two flamethrowers and a crazy amount of ammo too.
While the whole thing is totally fucking mental, we were curious to hear from the rest of the band about the matter, and they've now revealed that Pat is receiving help and the band will continue to tour as planned:
"As a band and as individuals, we all want nothing but the best for our brother and partner, Pat. While we can offer no further information about the incident, we wanted everyone to know that Pat is getting the help he needs and appreciates the love and support from Cannibal Corpse fans around the world.
Pat is currently with family and friends and looks forward to a healthy return at some point. For anyone wondering, all Cannibal Corpse touring will happen as planned and all shows will be played."
Just as well, seeing as they've also just been announced as supports for Slayer on the North American leg of their farewell tour next year.
Listen to Cannibal Corpse now.
