Danny Leal Abduction Publicity Stunt

Yesterday,  the band Upon A Burning Body reported that their front-man, Danny Leal, was missing and had not been seen since June 30th. 
The bands story appeared to be backed by a couple of tweets the front-man posted before the report was released.
Despite the report and sketchy tweets, fans were incredibly skeptical that this whole incident was nothing more than a publicity stunt to promote the bands new album.
Turns out, they just might be right.
Ash Avildsen, the CEO of Sumerian Records posted this message on Facebook
 Not much else has been said about the incident at this time.  However, it does appear that it was nothing more than a hoax.  How low must one sink to believe that reporting a fake abduction is a solid method in promoting an album? Too many people are genuinely abducted for this to be even remotely funny, and it's not cool to worry fans of the band in this manner. 

What are your thoughts about this?  Let me know in the comments below!

Peace, Love, Music<3
