It seems like there is no end to the string of disappointing sexual harassment and assault allegations this year. One of the latest is that of Luke Rockets, guitarist of Australian band With Confidence and the alleged sexual harassment of an underage girl. The identity of the alleged victim has been kept secret, but from what information is available it appears Luke Rockets engaged in sexually explicit dialogue with a minor aged 14 while has was 22.
We have included the screenshots and Facebook post below. We have reached out to With Confidence for a statement.
*Update* With Confidence Removed from Tour
Since the story first broke we had questions around With Confidence’s continued involvement in current tours. In that short time Knuckle Puck have since removed them from the remaining dates on the current U.S. tour.
We now eagerly await to see Tonight Alive’s stance on having them involved in their upcoming UK / EU tour.
