Tallah frontman Justin Bonitz was allegedly missing after being arrested on the first night of the group’s tour due to fighting with the security guards at their show last Thursday (18th) at the Lizard Lounge in Lancaster, PA. The group’s label, Earache Records, addressed the situation via social media with the following message:

“Tallah @tallah__ singer Justin Bonitz arrested during Lizard Lounge,Lancaster PA show last night, after fight with security. Lancaster police released him from custody 3am with no phone, no shirt & no money, he’s currently missing. Fans urged to contact the band if he’s spotted.”

The band has now revealed they found their singer as they plan to resume their tour. According to the group’s latest update, the police station informed the nu-metal act that Bonitz was released at 4.am. and somehow “did not keep track” of his whereabouts as the singer was transferred to a nearby prison. Tallah eventually found the prison where their frontman was staying and bailed him out. 

The group issued the following statement:

UPDATE: We have Justin back.

After the police station told us he was released at 4 a.m. we spent the majority of the day searching the city for him. Apparently, he was transferred to a prison nearby and the police station did not keep track of it and were instead told he was released. We made our way over to the prison and bailed him out. He still needs to go to court but atleast we have him back now. We will see you on the road this week with Guerrilla Warfare.”
