Guitarist Recovering from accident

If you haven't been following us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/maliciousintentnj let me fill you in on what's going on with Malicious Intent. For the past 2-3 months we have been working very hard on laying down tracks and if anyone knows Matt Friant, they know how hard it is for him to be happy with the way it sounds! There's always tweeking to be done lol. But when it's done, it's definitely right! Right now we would give anything to have him say "this is heavy as fuck" or to have him tweek the tracks. Matt was involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident August 31st, thankfully he survived, however he is still currently in ICU. The extensive list of injuries makes for a long road to recovery. Our singer/bassist Bert, who is Matt's best friend and brother has been by his side since we received the call. The past few days Matt as been awake and showing some minimal movement and has been getting stronger every day. The love and support from his friends and family and the Malicious family have been overwhelming. We can't thank everyone enough for your support. Included below is the link to a fundraiser for Matt where you can follow his story/progress. Donations will go towards providing for Matt's children while he is physically unable to at this time. We are currently focused 100% on Matt's recovery at this time and as soon as we can we'll have him working on what he loves-his metal music! \m/ \m/ https://www.giveforward.com/fundraiser/ssn5/the-matt-friant-fund/91258?fb_ref=2616454&utm_campaign=update_iOS&utm_medium=fb_post&utm_source=facebook
