It appears that metalcore outfit Attila have parted ways with drummer, Bryan McClure, following allegations of sexual misconduct which have recently surfaced online.

McClure joined the band in 2017 shortly after former drummer Sean Heenan was removed.

In the band’s statement confirming his removal, which you can read below, they refer to McClure as being a “touring member” and that they “do not condone his actions”.

“Over the last 4 years, Attila has been a three piece band. We were absolutely disgusted 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.
– Fronz, Chris, & Kalan.”

The allegations in question initially came to light on Twitter, most recently from a user who describes the alleged abuse and assault.

A number of days earlier, another alleged victim came forward on Twitter, in which they claim they were underage at the time these allegations began along with screenshots of messages that they’ve exchanged.

For those who are facing or who are survivors of sexual abuse, harassment and misconduct, more help and support can be found below.
