The heavy music community lost their shit this morning when news hit the internet of In Hearts Wake frontman Jake Taylor absolutely ripping into a security guard who was working during the bands set at Vans Warped Tour in Dallas early this weekend.

Footage posted to the In Hearts Wake Facebook page last night (originally from Instagram user Jezzbeck) showed the Byron Bay metalcore giants putting a stop to a security guard choking a fan from their audience.

In the footage, Taylor can be seen making his way to the edge of the stage mid-song and noticing the act of fuckery, before yelling out at the security guard through his microphone saying “What the fuck are you doing to this guy?” Taylor then jumped down into the battle, pulling on the security guards arm to loosen his grip on the victim. “He does not need a fucking head brace! He can’t breathe, bro. Let him breathe! He’s not a UFC fighter” Taylor again yelled through his microphone, no doubt making sure his every word is heard clearly.

Taylor then shared via his social media “His head was literally turning blue and all we could read on his lips were ‘I can’t Breathe’ It was completely unnecessary, we did our best to intervene, pulling on his arm to try and allow air in whilst every other guard just stood back.” Taylor then pleaded “If you’re a security guard reading this you need to understand that this is a metal show, not a UFC death match. If you’re in the mosh, enjoy yourself and be respectful, but you also need to be aware of the consequences – which shouldn’t be the possibility of being put into submission to the point of unconsciousness.”
