Security officers reportedly assaulted members of FYER's crew upon leaving the festival grounds last night, leaving their tour manager hospitalized after being sliced with a knife wielded by security.

Due to safety concerns, the duo has cancelled their performance. In the post, they revealed that video footage of the incident was captured, but is being withheld from release at the insistence of their legal team.
