Knocked Loose Kick Stone Off Their Upcoming Tour With Terror & Jesus Piece Following Sexual Assault Allegations

Knocked Loose have announced that Stone have been removed from their upcoming tour with Terror and Jesus Piece following sexual assault, rape, etc. allegations against Stone’s Zach Dear (ex-Expire). Year Of The Knife have been added to the trek as their replacements. Considering there has been so many victims coming forward against Dear, a Tumblr has been set up to share all their statements.

Knocked Loose commented:

“We have been aware of recent incidents and paying very close attention to every story, tweet, and Facebook post being shared. Stone is no longer on the upcoming tour, it was never a question from the start. This is being worked on from our end since the very beginning please do not take our silence as hiding from the issue, instead we have been working to make our first official headliner a better tour and a safer place for everyone involved.

We are sorry it took so long to update. We have always promoted a safe place for every different kind of person that wants to come to our shows, and have vocally promoted a safe space for women. We DO NOT stand behind these actions, and it will not be tolerated. More news tonight.”

Dear also issued his own statement:

“In the last few days there have been some stories involving me circling around the internet. Most saying that I hurt people in different ways. While on tour I was shamefully promiscuous. It’s not something I’m proud of but it is something I’ve been honest about. I lived by the rule that every intimate encounter was over when a woman said “no.”

In every intimate situation I’ve been in, my understanding at the time through body language, being kissed back, etc., was that everything was consensual. I am not the kind of guy who would intentionally harm anyone and – given the chance – I would apologize to anyone who felt I misinterpreted their signals or hurt them. That was far from my intention.

I think it’s important for women to raise issues like this. No question. It gives everyone the opportunity to reflect and deal with them honestly which is what I’ll be doing while we take a break from touring.”
