    Knocked Loose have removed Stone from their upcoming tour after allegations of sexual misconduct. The band’s full statement can be found below.


    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.

    Good riddance.

    Year of the Knife is their replacement. Quality straight-edge metallic hardcore:

    Didn't know anything about Stone before, and won't bother now. Year of the Knife is legit though so I'm down for them.

    Looks like the tweet you linked in the original post has been deleted?

    hmmmmmmmmmm either this stone band decided to like, sue or something or knocked loose/the label is making a bad decision protecting this band

    I see on KL's Facebook they have a post announcing the new band that's taking the place of Stone, but that's it.

    wouldn't surprise me if pure noise or legal consultation had them pull it because of potential legal implications. i'm not a lawyer or pr-literate so this is just baseless speculation.

    they need to make some type of public statement along the lines of what is said in the original post and not delete it.

    yeah that's my guess too
     
  15. I don't know what legal implications could come from that post. Pure Noise getting involved badly wouldn't surprise me though.

    that's what confused me too. it's a perfectly innocuous statement so it seems weird that they'd delete it. it was the only explanation i could think of without there being something more nefarious afoot, but like i said, i have no idea at the end of the day.

    The last day or so has been pretty wild in terms of hardcore dudes getting outed. Definitely for the best.

    As for Terror, there's been a million dudes in this band, so I'm hoping Scott does the right thing and gets a new lineup going
