Pro-Pain’s Gary Meskil is “the Victim of a Robbery and Attempted Murder in Brussels”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Pro-Pain bassist/vocalist Gary Meskil has been badly assaulted while the band was on tour in Brussels, Belgium. The group posted the following message to Facebook:

“Important News:

“This past Monday night, Gary was the victim of a Robbery and Attempted Murder in Brussels. He was pick-pocketed of cash, credit card, and passport, struck on the head with an ice pick and then subsequently attacked by a gang of individuals. The police have confiscated more than one weapon and they have established the identities of some of the suspects. Gary was quickly admitted to ICU after suffering head trauma (including several fractures to his face and jaw) and massive blood loss. Since then he has stabilized and is trying his best to recover, but future surgery may be necessary. We regret to inform the fans that the shows scheduled for Roeselare (July 7th) and Osnabruck (July 8th) are now officially cancelled. We will make sure to keep you all informed of any other cancellations and on Gary’s progress.

“Thanks for your support at this difficult time.


It goes without saying that this is terrible, whether you’re a Pro-Pain fan or not. Hopefully Meskil comes through this all okay, and hopefully they find the fuckers that did this and lock ’em up but good.

More details as we get ’em.
