Nathan Leone of Madina Lake talked with NME about Matthew’s progress following the tragic event that put him in hospital. Matthew had attempted to assist a woman who was being beaten by her husband Justin Pivec near his apartment in Chicago, receiving a blow to the head after being attacked from behind that caused a broken jaw, a broken nose and a fractured skull.
“How we were raised is you don’t treat anyone like that but especially women,” Nathan said. “That’s insane. It’s disgusting. I don’t understand how anyone could walk by that and not get involved. It breaks my heart in a million pieces I wasn’t there and it just went the way it did.” Nathan added that Matthew has survived a second significant surgery and he’s on his way to recovery, and they’ll get a better understanding of the long term effects of the damage in a year.”
