    This article has been imported from chorus.fm for discussion. All of the forum rules still apply.

    The Daily Ridge is reporting that former Get Scared vocalist Joel Faviere was arrested in an undercover child pornography sting:


    Detectives received information that someone operating a device located in Faviere’s home was sharing files that contain child pornography. Detectives responded to the home on Buck Run Drive, and during an on-scene preview of his computer equipment they seized, detectives found over 4,500 files containing child pornography, including images of infants and toddlers being sexually abused. Faviere told detectives he has been viewing child pornography for a year and that it “has become an addiction.”

    Don't know the band, but I hate hearing about these things, so awful. I can barely believe things like this even happen.

    I remembered a friend had mentioned Get Scared a while back, but I never got into them. After seeing this article, I looked up the band's info and this former vocalist was literally in the band for less than a year. The original lead singer left unexpectedly and the rest of the band held auditions, which is where they picked up Faviere.

    Again, I've never really listened to these guys, and I'm by no means a fan, but I think it sucks that their band name is going to be attached to this sick bastard's actions.

  8. They should change their name, their reputation is done as Get Scared. Same case as Lostprophets and No Devotion.

    I really don't know how anyone can do this, but it seems like a fact at this point that there are just some sick evil twisted individuals out there...

    Also, as mentioned earlier, I too did research on the band and saw that he was only in the band for a year or less. I feel bad that another band full of innocent people, that had no clue are going to get wrecked by one's mindless/heartless acts =/

    Composer, but never composed.

    Well I mean, while I wouldn't necessarily agree that they should be riding the wave of a child pornography sting, I do agree with the statement thing. Awful that the reports are being tied to them, but I suppose the article needs a hook.
     
  11. No, that would be gross. They just have to cut ties with him. Look at what New Found Glory did.

    I remember this band vaguely, they had a song or two I liked waaaaaay back in their early days. Didn't know they were still a thing but good for them. Hopefully they release a statement and move on from this.

    Never heard of them before but it's always shit when one individual's horrendous actions cause a negative backlash for the rest of the band. He was only with them for a brief spell anyway. But yeah, like others said, they're best off just condemning and distancing themselves further from him.

    I listened to this band for like a week once years and years ago. Don't remember what they sound like, and now I never will, because I refuse to listen to even one song if it could in anyway support this disgusting person.

    Incredibly average band but he was only on one low profile EP from what I looked up online.

    This dude almost sang on one of my band's songs a few years ago, before he was in Get Scared. I kept trying to reach out to him but he wouldn't return any of my inquiries (after originally agreeing to do the song). So I'm incredibly glad that never materialized. There's nothing more I can say than what a despicable, vile human being and I am so glad he was caught.

    Disgusted. The thought makes me want to vomit. Someone like him needs a serious mental evaluation and an ass kicking at the same time.
