The Mysterious tale of Threatin

2018-11-09 by DatsNotDaMetulz | 27 Comments
Revelations have broken this week regarding the mystery of one-man rock group Threatin, after a disastrous UK tour in which nobody attended, despite claims of hundreds of tickets being sold. Instead, the only people in attendance were staff, guests from opening bands, and members of the supporting bands. Venues who had hosted Threatin have since blacklisted the artist.

Since news broke of the lengths Jered Threatin went to in order to create his rockstar persona online, he has deactivated his Facebook page and disabled comments on YouTube videos. He has so far refused to comment on reports, and is expected to complete his European tour in the coming days.

This is such a bizarre story. Even major publications like NME have picked up on it: https://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/fake-band-threatin-just-played-sold-uk-tour-absolutely-no-one-2400572

The band isn't even that good.

The sound of that snare can't be unheard! Glad to see that Blut Aus Nord finally has a worthy opponent.

I think this whole story will play in his favor in the end, he's getting far more exposure than he could have ever dreamed of. I bet people will start showing up at his gigs now.

They cancelled their gig in Belfast after the guitarist and drummer left, saying they had no idea it was all a scam. But because they'd already hired the venue, the support bands were still allowed to play.

Turns out MetalSucks have released a whole bunch of revelations about who Threatin really is, and he's spoken out. Will work on a new article for it.

Huh, if he wanted attention why the fuck didn't he capitalize on it by leaving his social media open and sort of attracting attention that way. Doesn't make sense.

Why else would he do this if he didn't want attention. I don't get it.
