Attila Drummer Accused of Rape
Update, 4:02 p.m.: Lambgoat reports that Attila has now fired McClure. Says the band in a statement:
“Over the last 4 years, Attila has been a three-piece band. We were absolutely digusted to learn of some recent events surrounding a touring member of the band, and earlier this week we parted ways with that member. We do not condone his actions, and we stand with the victims. We are deeply sorry to those affected and want nothing more than love and healing for them.”

Attila drummer Bryan McClure has been accused of anally raping an ex-girlfriend, Eileen Anderson.
Anderson, who shared her story on social media, says she dated McClure from early 2017 until late May of 2018. She claims that during their time together, McClure:
- Encouraged her to have an abortion because “members of [Attila] told [McClure] if [he were to get a woman pregnant] he would be kicked out.”
- Would often drink and become verbally abusive, calling her “a stupid fucking whore” and a “fucking cheating groupie.”
- Anally raped her on Attila’s tour bus after she passed out from doing speed (which she and McClure thought was cocaine).
- Promised to tell his bandmates about the rape, and then never did.
She also included screenshots of a text message conversation in which McClure appears to admit to having raped Anderson.
McClure is the second member of Attila to be accused of sexual misconduct in the past week, following a woman who claims that she had sex with frontman Chris Fronzak when she was under age.
