The Calling
singer Alex Band has released photos of the injuries he allegedly sustained during a violent abduction Sunday morning in Michigan ... but let's be honest ... they don't paint a picture of a "near-death" encounter.

Alex's publicist tells TMZ ...  the singer suffered a fractured lower spine, 15 stitches to the lower chin, 3 broken teeth and is bruised on his side and stomach from a beating that occurred after Band was snatched off a Lapeer, Michigan street by mysterious people in a van.

According to the rep, the only reason Alex escaped with his life is because his captors took mercy on him for having a baby on the way. The rep says Alex told them, "Don't kill me as I am about to be a dad," and the captors responded, "We don't kill fathers." It's like something out of a bad movie.

As we first reported, police are investigating the incident ... but we've tried multiple times to get someone from the PD on the phone and they're stonewalling it.

And get this ... Alex's PR team just announced The Calling's big comeback.  Coincidence?

Even though it smells fishy, Band is sticking by his story, insisting, "I was near death due to this unbelievable situation and the rumors are categorically false and not a hoax as reported.”

Get the fcuk outta here, if he was beaten and robbed his injuries would've been a hell of a lot worse than that. He looks like a guy who drank too much, wandered outside and did a face plant on the ground.

Unless you live here in Mid-Michigan you can't assume that what happened was fake. There is a reason 4 of the top 20 most dangerous cities in the US are from Michigan. Anyone around those cities are facing at lease a 1-7 chance of being a victim of crime.

He is a pu$$y so I am sure a punch to the face and waking up next to some train tracks is considered a life or death experience for him. A-hole stars and their way to get them back in the spot light is just ridiculous.

Another pub stunt, similar to that guy that was in a coma after the bottle to the face yet woke up smiling the next day, two goofs just checking in on America to see if people remember who they are when people didnt even know them at the height of their careers.
