Prior to Steve’s passing, he and his band Critical Khaos were eager to open for Otep. In his honor, the band found a way to continue playing the show. They explain below:

Hello Chaotic Family.. We hope everyone is doing the best they can today.. So there you have it.. This is something Steve wanted so badly before he was taken from us.. We talked about this show as if it was the opportunity of a lifetime for him and a chance to stand on a stage that he was previously just a fan of and support many bands here on this stage. But now it’s was his turn.. he wanted this more than you will ever know. We are so happy to be able to make this show..

We couldn’t have done this without our brother Robert Smith.. We love you and we know Steve wouldn’t want anyone else to take his place for this show.. we appreciate DARK SOUL for allowing their front man to ‘cheat’ them during a night out 🤟.. I love you guys .. and you know it .. Sherry Hunter Smith we know there are concerns and we understand and appreciate you allowing this and for this to happen with Robert.

So much love to you all. So enough talking… Go ​​ahead… JOIN US… MAY 19th at Madison Theater with OTEP & SEPTEMBER MOURNING and special guest Khao review with our beloved brother Robert at the helm of Chaos. We’ll let you know as soon as we get them.. should have tickets this next Monday.. It’s time to show that the CHAOTIC FAMILY IS STRONG AND DONE SO MUCH.

Our thoughts are with Steve’s bandmates, friends and family. A truly horrific and senseless tragedy. More information below:
