Dead Crown Drop off Attila Tour After Receiving “Countless Death Threats”

0

Mere days into the tour, Dead Crown have dropped off their current trek with Attila and Jynx after receiving “countless death threats.”

Says the band in a statement:

“To all Dead Crown fans/family across the world.

“It is absolutely heartbreaking for us to announce that we made a group decision to drop off the Day Drinking Tour with Attila & Jynx.

“Over the last few nights, we have received countless death threats, threats on our van/trailer and belongings, phone calls to our day jobs attempting to get us fired, and spammed calls to venues/promoters attempting to get us removed from the shows. These isolated but targeted attacks have been brought forth by the misinterpretation of our song’s lyrics on a social media platform.

“While these comments may have been bluffs, we decided to the risk wasn’t worth the additional stress on tour of touring itself.

“The safety and experience of our fans is our first priority, and second to that comes our own safety and mental health. This was a horrifying decision to have to make for us, as we’ve worked extremely hard to get this point to just to have to back out.

“As it stands right now, we will be gathering ourselves at home and decompressing. We truly hope you understand this decision, and apologize to all of you who wanted to see us perform. Thank you for your ongoing support of Dead Crown.”

According to Lambgoat, “The lyrics in question are to the Dead Crown track “No Remorse,” which many — Dying Wish vocalist Emma Boster among them — believe to be a response to the domestic abuse allegations leveled at drummer Bryton Wilson last year.
