Crown the Empire Guitarist Brandon Hoover Tests Positive for Coronavirus


Brandon Hoover, guitarist for Texas’ Crown the Empire, has revealed that he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, COVID-19:

“Welp…I tested positive for the Coronavirus. I’ve been told to self-quarantine for 14 days (or until further notice). I believe I contracted it through traveling to all these different countries over the past couple of months, but honestly, who the fuck knows, it could of happened anywhere.

“About a week ago I started getting a sore throat, congestion, and was more tired than usual. Then all of a sudden I had severe body aches and a fever of 102 degrees. I was in bed for a couple of days sleeping in puddles of my own sweat. Honestly I thought I just had the flu! So I went to the emergency room and got tested for that as well as the Coronavirus and got my results back last night confirming that I have it.

“Currently I feel back to normal and most of the symptoms have passed. If anything changes I’ll let y’all know. I advise everyone to keep yourselves informed, stay isolated, drink lots of water and wash your hands! I love you all. Please stay safe out there ????”

Everyone at MetalSucks wishes Hoover a speedy recovery. Please take care of yourselves, people!!!
