Pro-Pain frontman Gary Meskil has been the victim of a robbery and attempted murder in Brussels, Belgium.

Gary's bandmates have released a statement saying that the singer was pick-pocketed of cash, credit card, and passport, struck on the head with an ice pick and then subsequently attacked by a gang of individuals last Monday night, July 3rd 2017.

The police have established the identities of some of the suspects and confiscated more than one weapon.

Gary was quickly admitted to ICU after suffering head trauma which included several fractures to his face and jaw and significant blood loss. Since then he has stabilized and is trying his best to recover, but future surgery may be necessary.

As a result of Gary's injuries, Pro-Pain have been forced to cancel their scheduled concerts in Roeselare, Belgium last night, July 7th, and Osnabrück, Germany tonight, July 8th.

According to, he left the hospital yesterday and is now recovering at a friend's house in Belgium and said to have been put on "heavy pain medication".

The current Pro-Pain tour is in support of their latest album, 'Voice Of Rebellion', which was released in June 2015 through SPV/Steamhammer.
