Between The Buried And Me’s Dustie Waring Issues New Statement Regarding Recent Rape Allegation, Plans To Sit Out The Band’s Summer Tour

Betweeen The Buried And Me’s Dustie Waring has issued a new statement regarding the recent rape allegation against him. The guitarist denied the disturbing accusations, while also confirming that he is planning to sit out the band’s summer North American tour.

Waring said the following:

“I have recently been made aware of allegations from 5 years ago which were posted this weekend on Reddit. I do not condone non-consensual sex and have never acted without consent in any part of my private life or maliciously taken advantage of anyone.

These allegations have come as a complete shock, having dedicated my life to being of service to people that need help in many forms of recovery. I will therefore be taking some time to spend with my family to focus on maintaining my several years of sobriety which will include sitting out the Parallax II tour.

With the exception of this statement, I will be dealing with this matter privately with my bandmates and discussing any future action with my lawyer in order to protect myself and my family.”

The band added:

“Dustie Waring will not be performing on the Parallax 2: Future Sequence Tour. We will have a session guitarist filling in at all scheduled dates.”
