NEWS: Moose Blood address allegations against frontman, Eddy Brewerton!

Canterbury based emo rockers Moose Blood have just issued a statement online, in which they address allegations that have surfaced last year against the band’s frontman, Eddy Brewerton, and state that they are “entirely false” and that they “strongly refute it.”

The claims were raised by the alleged victim, who goes online by the name Zoe Maria, last year but the events that she describes reportedly occurred back in May 2014 whilst the band were touring ahead of dropping their then yet-to-be-released debut album, ‘I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time’.

In the raised allegations, Zoe Maria claims that Brewerton had stolen unsolicited nude photographs from her mobile phone, and then proceeded to share them with the rest of the band via their WhatsApp group without her consent.

At the time of writing, the full account of the events and allegations made can be read via a post on Zoe Maria‘s personal Tumblr blog (here).

She has also raised these allegations online via Twitter.

Following the increased volume of these allegations being circulated online, and commenting and questioning online towards the band, they issued a statement addressing them yesterday (February 23rd 2018) evening.

Along with refuting the claims, the band have also confirmed that they’re taking legal action.

You can read Moose Blood‘s statement on these claims below.

“We are aware of an allegation made against us concerning alleged theft of photographs and invasion of privacy. This allegation is entirely false and we strongly refute it. Until now we have resisted giving it any credence by commenting. However, the many repeats on social media have left us no option but to make our position clear.

We are taking legal action. The process to resolve this issue is underway. We do not propose to comment further at this stage.

We’d like to thank all our fans from the bottom of our hearts for your true loyalty & support.

This is not the first time that Moose Blood have been subject to allegations towards them.

Back in March of last year, the band parted ways with now former drummer Glenn Harvey in the wake of sexual harassment allegations.

More news surrounding the development of these allegations will be confirmed as they develop.
