Dates in London, Glasgow and Dublin have been scrapped in light of accusations against frontman Jesse Lacey
US rock band Brand New have cancelled their upcoming UK tour following sexual misconduct allegations against frontman Jesse Lacey. On Sunday, Lacey issued a statement responding to the accusations, in which he apologised for his actions.
Lacey had been accused of soliciting naked pictures from an underage girl and asking her to watch him masturbate over Skype in 2002. In a Facebook post, the woman claimed Lacey “manipulated the hell out of me, demanded specific poses/settings/clothing, demeaned me, and made it clear that my sexuality was the only thing I had to offer”. She said the requests for pictures began when she was 15 and Lacey was 24. Several other women later came forward with similar allegations.
