American Rock band ‘Brand New’ have cancelled a string of gigs, including their Dublin gig in The Olympia amid sexual misconduct and abuse allegations against lead singer Jesse Lacey.
Brand New were scheduled to play the Olympia this Thursday night, but in a string of sexual misconduct and abuse allegations against lead singer Jesse Lacey, the gigs have been subsequently cancelled.
The allegations began to surface over the weekend, when a woman came forward claiming that Lacey had solicited nude photos from her when she was underage and also forced her to watch him masturbate over Skype. Since then, more women have come forward accusing Lacey. The front-man has since made a statement on Facebook, which implies that the allegations made against him are in fact, true.
The band have since postponed a string of upcoming dates in the UK and Ireland.
Though, it’s feared these dates will never be rearranged due to recent breakup rumours. We’ll have to wait and see how all of this turns out…
