Brass Against singer Sophia Urista has apologized for peeing on a fan during a concert in Daytona Beach last Thursday in a statement that comes five days after the band itself addressed Urista’s actions in a regret-filled tweet.

“Hey everyone. I want to speak to my performance at Rockville metal festival in Daytona,” Urista wrote in an Instagram post Tuesday. “I have always pushed the limited in music and on stage. That night, I pushed the limites too far. I love my family, the band, and the fans more than anything and I know that some were hurt or offended by what I did. I apologize to them and want them to know that I didn’t mean to hurt them. I am not a shock artist. I always want to put the music first. I’m grateful for all of your continued love and support.”

Brass Against, a band known for performing brass versions of rock songs, issued an apology last Friday for lead singer Urista’s actions at the Welcome to Rockville concert in Daytona Beach the day before, when Urista pulled down her pants on stage and peed on a (surprisingly willing) fan mid-song.

“We had a great time last night at Welcome to Rockville. Sophia got carried away,” the band’s tweet read. “That’s not something the rest of us expected, and it’s not something you’ll see again at our shows. Thanks for bringing it last night, Daytona.”

During the performance, Urista grabbed a bottle of water, and noted that the show would be closed out with her relieving herself on someone in the audience once she drank it all.

“Get my man with the can on his head ready, ’cause we’re going to bring him onstage and I’ma piss in this motherf—er’s mouth,” she said.

A few minutes later, the man indeed climbed onto the stage, with an apparently empty can attached to his forehead. He laid down flat on his back on stage, prompting Urista to straddle his head, slide her pants down, and pee into the can — or at least, aim for it.

When she finished, the man scooped some of the liquid on stage into his hands and threw it out over the audience. After getting her pants pulled back up, Urista walked back over to him, telling him to get off the stage and calling for security to help her out.

“Security, get him the f— out of here!” she said. “Get the f— out of here, you’re done!”
