The alleged attacker of Madina Lake bassist Matthew Leone has been charged with Attempted First Degree Murder, Aggravated Battery Causing Serious Bodily Harm and Aggravated Battery in a Public Place. Matthew Leone, who is best described as a hero for his actions, is still recovering from the brutal attack, which took place at the end of June, and his twin brother, Madina Lake vocalist Nathan Leone, has been keeping fans appraised of the situation. Recap: Matthew Leone intervened to help a woman being beaten on the streets of Chicago by her domestic partner. The man then turned his focus and rage on the diminutive Good Samaritan Matthew, beating him within inches of his life. He had two brain surgeries in the aftermath and is recovering, despite lacking health insurance.
In a blog posting, Nathan told fans that Madina Lake is looking to get things back to normal, despite Matthew's recent trip to the ER with a ruptured wisdom tooth.
He posted, "In a grandiose display of Chicago's integrity, loyalty, compassion and strength and we're so effing lucky to have such amazing people in our lives...There's an old adage I try to live by which says 'You are who you are and where you are because of the dominating thoughts that you allow to occupy your mind' .. so let them be positive, optimistic and inspiring thoughts...crush the rest of ‘em.."
Efforts to raise money for Matthew's medical bills continue.
