Brass Against, a metal and rock cover band that performed at the recent Welcome To Rockville festival, made headlines for a special stunt by singer Sophia Urista. Urista called for a volunteer from the audience, on whom she urinated during a cover of Rage Against The Machine. For those interested in such video footage, you can find it here at 3:21.

Later, the band commented on social media that Urista got a little carried away, and that such behaviour would not be seen at future shows of the band.

However, according to The Daytona Beach News-Journal, Florida authorities have opened an investigation into the incident. State law makes it illegal to expose your genitals in public. If Urista is found guilty of a crime, the maximum sentence is one year in prison or a $1,000 fine.

Brass Against will tour Europe next year with prog-metal band Tool.
