Buffalo, NY’s SONS OF AZRAEL have lost their singer. Joe Siracuse died unexpectedly at 29. We send our thoughts and love out to their friends and family.
This is the second tragedy to befall the band in the past year. The news of Siracuse’s death comes just days short of the one-year anniversary of guitarist Tony Lorenzo being shot in the back during an armed robbery. Lorenzo was ultimately paralyzed from the waist down.
Lorenzo was mugged at 10:30PM on October 26 in Buffalo’s Elmwood Village. At the time, Lorenzo spoke about the incident, saying, “The kid asked me, he said, ‘Give me what you got.’ And before I could even get my wallet out, he just shot me. I was robbed. I can’t feel my legs right now.”
