Brand New Cancel Upcoming Shows in Wake of Allegations Against Jesse Lacey

Brand New

Following allegations of sexual misconduct against Brand New frontman Jesse Lacey, his touring bandmate, guitarist Kevin Devine, has made a decision to leave the tour, prompting the band to cancel upcoming tour dates.

The tour cancellation comes after a woman alleged that Lacey "solicited nudes from me starting when I was 15 and he was 24". What a fucking disgusting pervert!

"Due to the events of the last few days, Brand New will be postponing it's upcoming three shows in the United Kingdom and Ireland", reads their latest update. It features statements from two of Lacey's accusers, including Nicole Elizabeth Garey, who posted in the original public Facebook thread.

Shortly after the statement was issued, touring member of Brand New Kevin Devine announced that he wouldn't be joining the band on their tour of the UK & Ireland this week. Their upcoming shows in Dublin (November 16th), London (November 18th) and Glasgow (November 19th) were a part of their tour for their most recent album Science Fiction, which was released in August. Garey says her last contact with Lacey came when she was in her early-2os and the singer Skyped her while masturbating; she says she wanted to close the video but "there's something in me that couldn't".

In his statement, Lacey didn't refer to Garey's post, but admitted to being a "habitual cheater" in relationships, including with his wife Andrea King, and apologized for using his "power" as a famous musician, adding that sobriety was a step in changing his habits.

'It f***ed me up to the point that I STILL have nightmares and wake up in a sweat, ' she wrote.

"I hope I can show humility, and that the pain I have caused people can heal", Lacey wrote.

"I was selfish, narcissistic, and insensitive in my past, and there are a number of people who have had to shoulder the burden of my failures", he said. Driskill was a Brand New fan and she told Pitchfork that, "He was the first person to ever tell me that I was hot".

"I am sorry for how I have hurt people, mistreated them, lied, and cheated", Lacey continued, explaining that his behavior was caused by "a dependent and addictive relationship with sex".

'I am sorry for how often I have not afforded women the respect, support, or honesty that they deserved, and which is their right, ' he wrote. "I believe in the equality and autonomy of all, but in my life I have been more of a detriment to these ideals than an advocate", Lacey continues in his confession.

Driskill added that she travelled with her brother and a friend to watch Brand New perform in Austin when she was 18.
