Alacranes Musical have good reason to thank their guardian angels. The Mexican band were allegedly attacked after finishing a performance in Escobedo, Mexico, by unknown men in two black trucks. No one knows the motive for the incident, but theAlacranes are relieved that no one was hurt.
The group released a statement about the violent attack:
“Alacranes Musical feel very at peace for coming out of this terrible incident unharmed. This will not stop us from working in Mexico where we have thousands and thousands of fans”.
Thank goodness the group survived! There have been a string of other attacks against Mexican bands including one against narcocorridos’ singer Gerardo Ortiz,back in March. Unfortunately the group didn’t experience a similar fate after Ortiz‘s manager, Ramiro Caro, was shot and killed along with their driver, Abel Valle Rosales.
The drug cartel war has claimed countless of victims in Mexico and hasn’t spare the lives of several musicians.
