Necrophobic Comment on Tobias Sidegård Abuse Allegations
Necrophobic have broken their silence on the ongoing trial and investigation of vocalist Tobias Sidegård, who has been accused of abusing his wife and children. Sidegård issued a statement of his own directly to MetalSucks on Wednesday. Here’s the band’s statement, via Facebook:
Due to current allegations regarding Tobias, we want to point out that we cannot comment on an ongoing legal process in Sweden. NECROPHOBIC however does not condone domestic violence.
This will be our only statement until legal matters have been resolved.
Really not a whole lot to go on there, or even to speculate about. It’s got to be super-awkward that this is all happening at the same time they’re trying to promote a new album; only 14 hours after the above, Necrophic posted another update urging fans to pre-order it.
In any case we should have more news in a couple of weeks when the case wraps up in court. You’ll know more when we do.
