Attila have officially finished their new album. Chris Fronzak confirmed the news on Twitter:
Attila bassist Kalan Blehm has been accused of sexual misconduct, making him the third member of the band with allegations against him. According to The PRP, the accusations were made through a private Twitter account and Blehm has since issued a statement denying them.
Blehm said the following:
“On November the 5th, 2011 my previous band played a show in Denver, Colorado, it was this night when I met Lisa. On this evening, in conversation, Lisa would state that she was 21 years old. That night we engaged in consensual intercourse, and kept in touch from time to time, but never met up again.
That brings us up to the present day, and Lisa has made a claim that on the night of 11/05/2011 she was actually younger than she originally stated to be. For legal reasons and the safety of the other party, I am not going to blast this information, although if you know her full name the information is public.
The person accusing me has a DOB in December 1992, making her over the age of 18 in November 2011. I do not wish to slander this person over the internet and anything that is pursued further can be done so in a more legal manner.
I apologize to anyone who thought I may have done something against my morals, but I have not. In the end I hope this person finds peace in whatever she’s looking for.”
He also posted more evidence on Twitter. This news comes after frontman Chris Fronzak was recently accused of sexual misconduct and after drummer Bryan McClure was fired following accusations of rape and sexual misconduct.
Attila have parted ways with Bryan McClure. The drummer was fired after his ex-girlfriend, Eileen Anderson, accused him of rape. Anderson tweeted the following:
Before Anderson issued her statement, another woman also accused McClure of sexual misconduct:
Attila have since responded by kicking McClure out of the group:
“Over the last 4 years, Attila has been a three piece band. We were absolutely disgusted to learn of some recent events surrounding a touring member of the band, and earlier this week we parted ways with that member. We do not condone his actions, and we stand with the victims. We are deeply sorry to those affected and want nothing more than love and healing for them.
– Fronz, Chris, & Kalan.”
This news comes after Attila frontman Chris Fronzak was recently accused of sexual misconduct.
Attila’s Chris Fronzak has been accused of sexual misconduct. A woman recently called out the frontman in a series of tweets:
Fronzak then responded with two video clips saying:
“Hey what’s up this is Fronz and as you know there’s always two sides to every story. So here’s my side: first things first, I am not a pedophile, I have 0 desire to hook up with anyone underage and I’m strongly against that. At the end of 2018, my band was on tour in Europe and when we were on tour in Austria I met up with a girl named Roxy Vienna. I didn’t seek this girl out, she was simply in my green room, already drinking. We had some drinks together, we had a really good time.
And as things started to heat up, I asked her her age in which she proceeded to tell me she was above age. I checked her ID, in which she had a fake ID that said she was above age. We hooked up, that was that. Flash forward a year later it’s 2019—end of 2019, we’re back on tour in Europe. She comes out with her friend—they always come out together. It’s fun, we vibe, we drink. Once again they’re backstage, already drinking.
You guys know me, I’m in Attila, I’m very hospitable. Any guys, girls, guests—I’m always giving them drinks. I’m not forcing people to get drunk. I just want everyone to be happy and comfortable, that’s it. So we’re having a great night, once again, not a big deal, no one was blackout drunk. We had an early bus call that night so we didn’t hook up. And the next day Roxy messages me saying ‘I really regret not hooking up with you, me and my friend want to come out again to another date, so we can do it.’
And it’s at this point where she explains to me that she in fact lied about her age a year ago. Which was really offsetting and I’m upset about myself for knowing that and still hanging out with her, but we had a good time that night, once again, nobody was blackout. We hooked up and that was that. Since then we still talk. We’ve FaceTimed since that tour. We text, she sends memes in my messages and stuff. And I think that’s part of why I’m confused right now.
But I also have very strong reason to believe that my ex-girlfriend is playing a very large role in this—in fact I know she is. She’s very upset at me because I cheated on her. And I regret that, I made a mistake, I cheated on you. I’m sorry. But I really don’t think that this is a justifiable cause to come out here and try to ruin my life because you’re upset that I cheated on you.
Because I know that you’re teaming up with Roxy to do this and it’s making me really upset. Like, I’m very proud of what I do and everything I do is to support my family and my children. And you’re really… it’s really messing with me and I’m really upset. But that’s all I’m gonna say. I’m not gonna further dive into this topic right now. But I do have a lawyer, so if anyone has any additional concerns, I will happily link you to my lawyer and that’s all I have to say about this situation.”
