The confessions of Bury Tomorrow frontman Dani Winter-Bates
Rugby tackling cops, getting arrested for swearing, signing live turtles... It's all just another day in the life of Bury Tomorrow frontman Dani Winter-Bates
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ARRESTED?
“I came close – twice! Once was in America when we were playing in Augusta, Georgia with Otep and Stray From The Path – which was an interesting mix of genres! I was onstage, midway through our set, and I saw a security guard near me say something about ‘not swearing’. I was like, ‘That’s weird’, and carried on doing my thing. Expletives came out, I turned around, and he had a gun!”
WAIT, HE PULLED A GUN ON YOU FOR SWEARING?!
“He’d unbuttoned it! I was like, ‘Woah!’ They cut our sound, I ran over and he was telling me that if we swore one more time, they’d stop our set. No one had told me about [that rule]! Then, out of nowhere, I saw Stray From The Path’s now-ex bassist, Ryan, rugby-tackle this guy that had the gun, out of nowhere!”
THIS IS GETTING MENTAL
“They’d zip-tied one of the other members of Stray From The Path for swearing, and then the other bandmember came up and tackled him thinking he was a security guard and not a police offer. Both of them got arrested, we couldn’t leave the show.”
