Stage dives are a very common thing, and in theory are really cool. They're an exciting way to interact with the crowd, and look really awesome in pictures and video.
However, they are incredibly dangerous! Telle Smith, the front man of The Word Alive has fractured a rib, broken another, and broke a bone in his spine after doing a stage dive last week in Pomona, CA.
Somehow, despite a BROKEN BACK, Telle and the rest of The Word Alive will continue touring with Motionless In White and The Devil Wears Prada.
They have sworn if they ever canceled a show, it would be because they absolutely could not work around it. To most, this would be a perfect reason to drop off but The Word Alive is too damn dedicated for that!
Whether or not you are a fan of The Word Alive, you have to give them massive respect for this and acknowledge that's metal as fuck.
You can catch The Word Alive for a few more days with The Devil Wears Prada and Motionless In White! Check out the tour dates on their website!
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
