Alex Band — lead singer of the rock band “The Calling” — was abducted this weekend while taking a stroll down a street in Michigan, was beaten severely and then dumped on nearby train tracks … and cops are investigating, sources tell our sources.
Sources close to Alex tell us … the singer was in Lapeer, MI for a music festival … and decided to walk from his hotel to a nearby mini mart around 4am Sunday morning.
We”re told … during the stroll, a van pulled up alongside Alex and the people inside snatched the singer right off the street — then proceeded to beat the crap out of him.
Eventually, sources say, the abductors dumped the badly beaten rocker on some nearby train tracks.
We”re told … another member of the band noticed 32-year-old Alex had gone missing later that morning and assembled a search party. The singer was discovered a short time later.
Alex survived the incident — but his current condition is unclear.
Law enforcement wouldn”t confirm the specific details … but did tell us an incident report was filed … and officials are currently investigating.
We reached out to Alex for comment — but haven”t heard back.
FYI — The Calling was huge back in 2001, when they released that song “Wherever You Will Go” … but broke up soon after. We”re told the band had just recently reunited.
