Wear Your Wounds drummer Chris Maggio recently had a “freak accident” while doing his “regular workout routine.” In the mishap he lost consciousness and his front teeth, leaving him with a long list of medical and dental bills.
In light of the accident, a GoFundMe has been set up to help with those bills. Writes organizers Scott Bryant and Jeff Matz:
“Recently, our good friend and professional drummer Chris Maggio lost consciousness in a freak accident during a regular workout routine, which caused him to fall, knocking his front teeth loose. Combined with complications from multiple previous dental malpractices, this creates a situation that needs to be addressed ASAP. Fixing the damage could take a year or longer, including several visits to both oral surgeons and dentists. Any help in the form of donation and/or spreading the word about this GoFundMe would be grealty appreciated – let’s get our homie’s mouth fixed up pronto.”
The GoFundMe has currently raised a little over $4,400 of its $20,000 goal. Fans can donate through the funding page.
Wear Your Wounds released their latest album, Rust On The Gates Of Heaven, in July 2019. The band is slated to play a couple of European festivals this August, including the Motocultor Festival in Saint-Nolff, France and the ArcTanGent Festival in Bristol, UK.
