The Horrors, the horror

Faris Badwan had a horrible Halloween, getting attacked onstage during the Horrors set in Chelsea (the New York one, not the London one):

Badwan went on to describe the lead-up to the attack, saying "this guy kept trying to grab the microphone, and after I told him to stop, he tried to start a fight with me".

The singer the explained that the man subsequently jumped onstage and dragged him to the ground - throwing punches - before security intervened and threw the stage invader out.

Faris claims he doesn't usually fight, unless someone picks a fight with him first of all. Of course, because the band tend to publish a schedule of where they'll be playing, should the stage invader want a rematch, he's going to find it easy to track them down...
