Iced Earth Members DO NOT Condone Nor Support Riots Or The Acts Of Violence At The US Capital
While Iced Earth mainman Jon Schaffer continues to be in hiding following his “unlawful entry into the United States Capitol Building” on January 6th, his band members have released a statement on their facebook pages.
Singer Stu Block writes:
"We want to thank those of you who have sent words of support in recent days. Some of you have been concerned by our silence, which we understand. We needed some time to properly process the information and find out some facts before we made a statement.
First and foremost we absolutely DO NOT condone nor do we support riots or the acts of violence that the rioters were involved in on January 6th at the US Capitol building. We hope that all those involved that day are brought to justice to be investigated and answer for their actions.
With broken hearts we are sending our love and compassion to everyone who has felt pain from the events on January 6th. We are deeply saddened and our hearts go out to the families of the lives lost that day. There are really no proper words to console. Just know we are with you in your shock, grief and pain. Much love to you all. ❤️"
