The music artist who peed on a man’s face has now issued an apology, and it’s probably about time that she did. She got a bit overzealous, to say the least.
It looks like the lead singer of the group Brass Against has a lot of explaining to do.
In a video shared on social media, Sophia Urista is shown pulling down her pants and urinating on a fan who was laying on the stage at the Rockville Metal Festival last November in Daytona Beach, Florida. It wasn’t long before she admitted that she had gone way too far.
“I have always pushed the limits in music and on stage. That night, I pushed the limits too far,” the singer wrote on Instagram this week.
“I know that some were hurt or offended by what I did. I apologize to them and want them to know that I didn’t mean to hurt them,” she added.
“I am not a shock artist,” she said. “I always want to put the music first.”
The band was also quick to do damage control, saying in a tweet that Urista had simply “got carried away” when she peed on this guy’s face. I suppose that makes sense in a way, simply due to the endorphins of being “caught in the moment.” Still, we used to reserve doing things like that to fans for the most extreme acts, and I myself have listened to Brass Against’s stuff and they do not come off that way.
“That’s not something the rest of us expected, and it’s not something you’ll see again at our shows,” the tweet said.
After this episode, it was revealed that Urista and her group were slated to perform at Saint Vitus, a venue in Brooklyn, New York, the following Monday. After her apology, Urista issued a promo for that show on her Instagram feed and yet again alluded to the urination incident in her caption.
Apparently, this incident was nothing more than a bump in the road for Urista and her crew, as they recently contributed to the Matrix Resurrections movie with their own spin of Rage Against the Machine’s 1992 class “Wake Up.” They appear in the end credits of the film.
