Mental Cruelty Part Ways With Vocalist Lucca Schmerler Following Sexual Assault Allegations

Mental Cruelty have parted ways with Lucca Schmerler. The vocalist was fired after being accused of sexual assault.

The band commented:

“This has been the hardest week for us with daily calls talking about the allegations against Lucca. None of us ever thought about being in a situation like this, therefore it took us a few days to evaluate. As a result, Lucca is no longer a part of Mental Cruelty. Please be sure, we as the band (Danny, Nawl, Viktor and Marvin) completely distance ourselves from all forms of sexual violence and/or abuse.

You can read Lucca‘s statement on his personal Instagram account. Please understand that we will not speak on his behalf!”

Schmerler also issued his own statement:

“Due to threats of violence against my friends, family and myself, I will withdraw from public life until further notice. Investigations against the people involved were initiated a few weeks ago and I distance myself from all allegations made against me.”
