The alleged attacker of Madina Lake bassist Matthew Leone has been charged with Attempted First Degree Murder, Aggravated Battery Causing Serious Bodily Harm and Aggravated Battery in a Public Place. The news came in an update from Matthew's twin brother Nathan.

Updating his blog, Nathan told fans and well wishers they were forging on with getting things back to normal, despite Matthew recently having to be taken into the ER with a ruptured wisdom tooth. With the weekend seeing 2 benefit shows in aid of Matthew in their native Chicago, they were "focusing on the positive".

"It’s a grandiose display of Chicago’s integrity, loyalty, compassion and strength and we’re so effing lucky to have such amazing people in our lives...There’s an old adage I try to live by which says “you are who you are and where you are because of the dominating thoughts that you allow to occupy your mind” .. so let them be positive, optimistic and inspiring thoughts.. crush the rest of em.."

Nathan also talks about Madina Lake's plans moving forward, including the imminent release of a new track from the band. Head to this location to read Nathan's blog in full.
