Upon A Burning Body singer: What publicity stunt?

Wednesday, July 9, 2014 11:17 AM PT / 12,841 views
It doesn't look like Upon A Burning Body will be discussing, let alone apologizing for, their recent publicity stunt in which they reported that vocalist Danny Leal was missing. A day later, Sumerian Records condemned the affair, though promotion for the band's forthcoming album immediately began anyway. This week The Metalluminati caught up with UABB members Leal and Ruben Alvarez at Mayhem Festival and asked them about the stunt. Not suprisingly, they pretty much had nothing to say, responding with "What publicity stunt?" and feigning confusion.

Stop giving them attention, that is how you stop stupid shit like this.

anonymous 7/9/2014 11:32:40 AM

they were cool when they toured san antonio and austin

anonymous 7/9/2014 11:42:06 AM

Band is a far cry from what influenced them: living sacrifice, zao, and strongarm.

anonymous 7/9/2014 11:43:32 AM

ok this band has the worst name ever but they play some of the best metalcore to make up for it i used to live in san antonio and i never even saw or heard of them now theyre blowing up im excited.

anonymous 7/9/2014 11:46:24 AM

What's funny is...while you guys are sitting here talking shit about them on the internet, scratching your asses and eating doritos, UABB are out touring and doing something worthwhile.

Ive never been over 6.5" the last time ive measured it. Last while peing I got a hard-on and my c-ck measured in at 6.3". I couldnt believe how this program helped me a lot. I hoped to make 7" by the end of this month. I really want to have a big dick? =)) penisenlargementechnique.b logspot.com

anonymous 7/9/2014 12:31:57 PM

"SO DURRR, HAV U GUYS PLAYED MAYHEM OR WARPED TOUR?" fcking lol at wasting half the interview with questions any idiot could google. "Turds time the charm bitches, HAHAHAHAH" Very professional.

anonymous 7/9/2014 12:37:03 PM

His boyfriend tied him up. Had his way with them ear holes. Queers love gauging because it smells like sh!T

anonymous 7/9/2014 12:57:01 PM

anonymous 7/9/2014 1:24:58 PM

Danny will make more money from the free publicity you all are giving him here than any of you at your 9-5.

anonymous 7/9/2014 1:25:38 PM

Sick of hearing about this guy.

anonymous 7/9/2014 1:32:06 PM

I wouldn't go to their shows or buy their cd but I do think guy on left is good looking.

anonymous 7/9/2014 1:38:15 PM

Hopefully King 810 will shoot them in a publicity whore vs publicity whore battle and then those dudes will die of the AIDS

anonymous 7/9/2014 1:39:09 PM

Oh mexican hatebreed got in some shit again? Lulz, why dont yall do a live cover of pantera's "walk" during the set. That'll be real original.

anonymous 7/9/2014 1:48:52 PM

Singer for this band gives me a boner.?

anonymous 7/9/2014 1:51:31 PM

^You don't sound confidant

anonymous 7/9/2014 1:56:49 PM

Have you made stupid mistakes in your diet? Just Google Fat Blast Factor to find out

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:04:03 PM

Not condoning the pub stunt at all, but I've got to admit he's good looking. This won't be the last you see of him, I'm sure.

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:08:32 PM

Danny will make more money from the free publicity you all are giving him here than any of you at your 9-5. yeah 10,000$ shows split between 10 bands, 5 guys in the band, a producer, label, venue ect. fckING LUCRATIVE

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:10:49 PM


anonymous 7/9/2014 2:13:32 PM

For all you pathetic keyboard try-hards: UABB got paid a check of $300 already for downloads of "Red Razor Wrists" off their next album

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:17:15 PM


anonymous 7/9/2014 2:17:46 PM

i made that in a sneeze at my 9 to 4

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:18:12 PM

More for you keyboard warriors: each guy in UABB makes $80-85 an hour when playing shows.

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:34:58 PM

too bad they only play half hour sets ^

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:37:07 PM

and the hours of writing, practicing, touring, they didnt just walk up and get that. then when they fall off or lose heat that becomes 10$ ill take that office work

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:40:39 PM

what is with that really creepy guy on the right?

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:41:29 PM

LOL at any of you chodes thinking these guys make real money

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:47:39 PM

LOL at any of you chodes thinking these guys make real money

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:54:49 PM

Haha you can have your $10/hr office work, clown. Meanwhile the members of UABB will be each clearing $25,000 a year. Did I mention how we are swimming in women, and getting paid to see the world and flat out having as much fun as we want while making sick music?

anonymous 7/9/2014 2:58:04 PM

OMFG , fck YOU Are you the singer? I have wanked off to you 2-3 times while looking at your interview -- and im not gay..

anonymous 7/9/2014 3:12:35 PM

these guys r trying too hard 2 b something they obviously r not

sandpaperseatbelts 7/9/2014 3:14:48 PM

will be each clearing $25,000 a year. are you seriously bragging about that??? 2/10 for getting me to respond dick cheese.

anonymous 7/9/2014 3:18:59 PM

Emmure should be on this !!!!! Yeah!! Hahahah..... That's still funny right guys? ..guys???

anonymous 7/9/2014 3:37:42 PM

Ash from Sumerian is the one who dreamt up this idea, I heard him bragging about it last weekend. Classy

anonymous 7/9/2014 3:50:42 PM

nice ear holes

anonymous 7/9/2014 3:52:21 PM

I handle most of their finances and I have no idea where you guys are getting these numbers. They make around $100 per set. Most of their money comes from giving favors to people that follow them on twitter in exchange for tweets with their name in it.

anonymous 7/9/2014 4:27:51 PM

"clearing 25,000 dollars a year" really dude your bragging about that. at 10.00 hr/ they make about 25,000 dollars a year and have health insurance. Please tell me again your awesome health coverage you have when you have to close those huge ass plugs in your ears dumbfcks.

anonymous 7/9/2014 4:59:48 PM

Wait... Why are some people bragging about $25,000/year??? I make 4 times that working 30 hours a week at a pretty low level job. So cool to take advantage of a bunch of girls. Your aspirations are top notch.

anonymous 7/9/2014 5:14:56 PM

Who cares what they make. Even if UABB starts making $100,000/yr how are they gonna put their money to good use? Buying a Ferrari? Investing in google plus? I don't think so. All of us posting probably work hard to get the money we have. But don't you think we have to? Being in a metal band these days isn't effortless. It takes time and hardwork to make a really good band just to get a million views or more on youtube. Let alone a million dollars.

anonymous 7/9/2014 5:21:43 PM

Im sure UABB has more than enough money to get by, but im sure theys not loaded, a big house in the country, in san antonio, you can get a 6 bedroom mansion for about 400k, any descent band could make that in 5 yrs if they saved, my family is pretty well off and we live on a 12.5 acre lot with an 6 bdr, indoor pool and guest house for 800 k, right outside SA but if that was californa, it would be a nice studio apartment!, i dont know why im telling you this, but fck it it doesn't matter

anonymous 7/9/2014 5:36:18 PM

That fat fck with the old lady c*nt hair dangling off his chin needs to be dropped on the ground fast out cold stupid bald fcks like him need a lesson in life. He even said "third times the charm bitches" what a dochebag, all I can say keep it up moron one day some will cap your ass and no matter how much money you make talkin to bands you can't take it with you when your dead. That king parrot shirt wearing dochebag be talkin 10X more than the band. Shit

anonymous 7/9/2014 5:41:45 PM

Call me the instigator

anonymous 7/9/2014 5:52:44 PM

He's having some fun interviewing bands, leave him alone. How old are you if you don't mind me asking?

anonymous 7/9/2014 5:55:50 PM

I can buy your whole family. Don't worry bout how old I am.

anonymous 7/9/2014 6:08:25 PM

Cowardly poser gays. Anyone who respects this band is dumber than fcking bricks.

anonymous 7/9/2014 6:11:10 PM

The median household income in the US is $50,502. This is some extremely useful data given that it is exploring over 114 million US households. If you want to know how most Americans are living this is a good figure to base your assumptions. $50,000 does not go a long way in our economy today given the cost of food, energy, housing, education, and healthcare. F@ggots

Upon A Burning Body SLC Utah was craziest show I have probably ever been to. Their new song - Red Razor Wrists (available on iTunes) came on the venue nearly shut down from the chaos it was causing it was fcking amazing

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:00:31 PM

This is most likely the worst band in the history of hardcore.

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:06:43 PM

"ok this band has the worst name ever but they play some of the best metal core to make up for it i used to live in san antonio and i never even saw or heard of them now they're blowing up im excited." ^ Play some of the best metalcore yet you say you never saw or heard of them?

This is their publicity stunt #2 out of the 219323 to come

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:11:24 PM

You'd think with the number of views and comments that Danny was some sort of God.

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:23:02 PM

Danny doesn't give a shit what u guys think about anything anyone says about him he is such a nice guy tbh and honestly the stunt idea was fcking awesome because it worked I was worried that's the end of the band and they are one of my fav bands right now while you hardass keyboard rangers argue about how rich they are getting I'll be preordering the new one like every uabb album. ?

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:24:17 PM

*sniff, sniff* I smell a fanboy.

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:29:20 PM

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:30:01 PM

Too many people are hating on this band now.....get over the whole stunt, and head on over to iTunes....

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:32:01 PM

whats that old saying "any publicity is good publicity"

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:35:58 PM


anonymous 7/9/2014 7:41:23 PM

2 years and we won't be complaining about publicity, we will be hearing them on the radio. They will be making $400,000 in their prime.

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:43:45 PM

Shit screams, boring guitar parts, random breakdowns. An extreme publicity stunt wasn't worth it. Nice job.

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:44:03 PM

"For all you pathetic keyboard try-hards: UABB got paid a check of $300 already for downloads of "Red Razor Wrists" off their next album" ^Oh wow no way, 300 whole dollars? I sure hope they keep their wits about them and don't spend it all in one place!

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:46:06 PM

Why click on this news if all you all are going to do here is cry. Go buy some kleenex tissues and tampons

anonymous 7/9/2014 7:51:13 PM

random breakdowns? childish comment. the last breakdown on the song they just released sounded so complicated. what the fck man.

anonymous 7/9/2014 8:05:37 PM

Gunn here from King 810, these guys are alright!

anonymous 7/9/2014 8:09:35 PM

Half the comments are from the band members bragging about how much money and girls they get. Meanwhile Ive got a 401k and a nice house and truck from NOT having to drive around in a van anymore. Good riddance to playing for 15 year olds anymore.

anonymous 7/9/2014 8:12:08 PM

I was in a Houston based band a few years ago and we played with these guys in San Antonio before they "got big". They are a bunch of little crybaby pussies but they try so hard to be tough.

anonymous 7/9/2014 8:17:31 PM

This is Danny Leal. That the guy saying how much money I make is full of shit. I didnt get 300 dollars from the new song, I actually had to PAY 300 dollars for someone to "leak" it. Im not successful. I try to be a badass and Im crying on the inside. The other guys in the band love it when I suck their c-cks. Thats where I really make my money. Im really good at it. Better at it than singing. Im just tired of pretending to be someone Im not. I gotta go. I hear someone in my house again.

anonymous 7/9/2014 10:05:37 PM

What in the fck publicity stunt are you people talking about ? I never once turned on the news that said " once upon a stupid fcking band name has member gone missing " , or cnn , or BBC, or the onion , or the daily bugle, or my local fcking YMCA pamphlets. Just because a C rate website posts a "news update" , does not mean anything worked or was successful... That's what college is.

Stop giving them the attention they were trying to get in the first place. Instead of "hardcore and metal gossip," try to be more "hardcore and metal news."

anonymous 7/10/2014 9:32:29 AM

"stop talking about them" "clearly its working, all this publicity" contrary to popular belief , not all publicity is good publicity. and me ripping them is not going to make some scene kid take 99Cents from his moms itunes to download it. hes going to pirate it. and to say

anonymous 7/10/2014 9:32:36 AM

"they will be making xxxx in there prime" you obviosly dont know shit. check normal bands profits. i think the top bands in the industry with breakdowns and no singing make a max of 100k a year as a great. and that requires people liking you

anonymous 7/10/2014 9:33:16 AM

its not a given that they going to just fall into success

anonymous 7/10/2014 9:43:20 AM

"The members of UABB will be each clearing $25,000 a year." HAHAHA I doubt that and even if they do, that's barely above the poverty line. You could probably make more money by managing a McDonald's and to manage a McDonad's, all you have to do is sit on your ass and tell some people what to do every few hours.

Above poster regarding Mcdonalds, yes you can make $25k/yr doing that. Let me say when all is said and done everyone in UABB is clearing that easy. Oh did I mention benefits? Some of us get laid 2, 3, 4+ times a week. And I'm not talking about the zitty-200 lb-fry cook-type like you. Our girls are fcking models. We get to do what you love, and travel the world. So those burgers aint gonna flip themselves, get back to work peon.
