John Stabb of legendary hardcore act Government Issue was recently victim of an assault. On July 17th the frontman was attacked by a group of five men just a block away from his home, and as a result is undergoing extensive facial reconstructive surgery starting today.

To help deal with the mounting medical bills and lost wages, friends of Stabb have pulled together a benefit effort. You can find more info on the cause here. A benefit concert and auction are planned, with details to be announced soon.
