Just days after “Extra” debuted The Calling’s video, the band headed to Lapeer, Michigan for a music festival.
The terrifying ordeal took place when Alex decided to head from his hotel to a mini mart around 4 AM. Sources say a group pulled up in a van, abducted the singer and beat him up, dumping him on the tracks.
Later that morning, a band member realized he was missing and gathered a search party. He was discovered a short time later. The 32-year-old survived, but his condition is unknown.
Alex Band has been on a tumultuous journey, having fought drug addiction and difficult personal relationships. After eight years on hiatus, he recently assembled a new band and returned to the scene with acoustic versions the group’s hit songs.
