The Afters’ Guitarist Keeps Playing During Bee Attack

Published: 2007-11-02
Texas rockers The Afters were recently playing a show in their home state when Brad Wigg (bass guitar, vocals) started to get attacked by a swarm of bees. Frontman Joshua Havens says of the incident, "We were playing a show in Sherman, TX over the weekend when Brad was attacked by killer bees on stage... he swatted, kicked, slung his guitar and insulted the bees in what was a valiant fight against the aggressive swarm. As anyone knows, one man and one guitar are no match for dozens of bees... especially when the rest of us were just playing the songs, oblivious to Brad's struggle. He ended up falling on his back and escaping from the bees in what can only be described as a true moment of Rock'n Roll heroism... and someone captured it on film. Brad, we salute you for surviving the bee attack without incurring a single sting."

The Afters are also getting ready to announce their Winter tour dates for February and March 2008, with plans to include the Western US and some great support bands. The new album surrounding the tour will be out on February 26, 2008 and will be called Never Going Back to OK.
