Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly robbed at gunpoint in New York
Thursday frontman Geoff Rickly has revealed he was robbed at gunpoint in New York City yesterday (June 4).

The singer took to Twitter to share details of the incident, writing: "So just to give the whole story: Walking home from the train to my place I was robbed." Rickly then made a list of the possessions he lost in the attack - which included his epilepsy medication.


Continuing, Rickly revealed he had been touched by the response to the incident. "A number of kind and generous souls have elected to make donations to my bandcamp, for one reason or another. Unexpected, unsolicited..." he wrote.

"In a particularly difficult time in my life (brutal year), a potentially devastating event has shown me so much compassion, love and humanity. I feel very lucky, indeed. Thank you."

Rickly was a founding member of Thursday, who formed in New Jersey in 1997 and went on to release six studio albums, including 2003's 'War All The Time', which reached Number Seven on the US chart. The band announced a hiatus last year (2012) and Rickly released a mixtape of solo recordings that November.
