Twitch musician fainting mid-song wasn’t enough to stop rock performance

A Twitch band has showcased that sometimes the show must go on, even when someone faints, continuing their jam even when they’re a man down.

When you’re a musician and something happens on stage, from an audio mishap to a missed verse, you’ve gotta think on the fly to keep the show going. 

This extends to some medical episodes as well, as shown by one band on Twitch who kept the performance up even with a man down on the floor.

Halocene, who perform on Twitch every week in front of their fans, were playing their new single ‘This Is Our War.’ The rock song involves a little bit of screaming from guitarist Bradley Amick to back up lead vocalist Addie Nicole.

Halocene are an independent band hailing from Arizona, often performing on Twitch.

However, Amick hit the song a bit too hard though during his section. As he screamed into the mic, the musician was hit with a rush of blood, blacking out and falling to the ground.

He managed to mutter out a few words as he fell, but otherwise laid on the ground for around 30 seconds to recover. However, the show must go on, with Brad getting up and continuing from where he left off without missing a beat, although he went a bit easier in the screaming sections.

After the song wrapped up, Nicole was curious as to what happened, even having a cheeky dig about why he randomly fell over. However, he was less than impressed, getting a bit worked up over the question and describing how he felt in the moment.

“I’ve just gotta say, a complete middle finger for you to denying that I fainted, because I did,” he said. “I didn’t think it was coming, it just happened. It literally was like, your face gets tingly and then in a second you black out.”

Although he was on the floor, all he could think about was getting back up and continuing to play. “You couldn’t stop the song, the song’s playing, I’ve gotta keep going,” he said.

The band’s audience in Twitch chat were concerned for the guitarist, as was Nicole, but he was fine to continue going.

“I feel fine. I just can’t scream today, sorry guys. Last week I f**king I was doing just fine. I’m not breathing enough, I’m hyperventilating during my screaming. I just have to catch my breath.”

Halocene are an independent band from Arizona, often doing rock and pop covers as well as releasing their own content. They have released four original albums and a bunch of covers, with a sizable following on Spotify and YouTube, and even opened for Blink 182 back in 2015.

They also recently won the Rajj Talent Show, taking home $15,000 to continue doing what they love on Twitch.

While they’ll continue to perform on Twitch, they might not go as hard to try and keep the show going with all four members on their feet.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”
