long term punk survivors Screeching Wesal split after frontman Ben attacked audience at their SXSW show.
The band issued the following statement…

“The uncalculated act put forth by Ben Foster leading up to and including the violence that erupted on stage is seen by the band as shameful and embarrassing,” they said.

They added: “As a result, the band has discussed at length and has come to the conclusion that as a group we will not likely be able to muster the dignity to attempt a live performance as Screeching Weasel in the foreseeable future.”
