Over the weekend, Brand New frontman Jesse Lacey was met with accusations of sexual assault. Since the initial accusation, Martha pulled out of supporting the band at their upcoming UK tour, as did Kevin Devine. Two days after the accusations were made, Lacey released a statement of his own that while not directly addressing the specific allegations against him, admitted to his wrongdoing. You can read the full statement here.
The band announced yesterday that they have ‘postponed’ their UK tour. Whether or not this is a genuine postponing or complete cancellation is yet to be seen, but at this moment the chances of a reschedule seems highly unlikely.
The tour was set to visit the following:
16 DUBLIN Olympia Theatre
18 LONDON O2 Academy Brixton
19 GLASGOW O2 Academy
