With Confidence Are “Taking Time Off”
After parting ways with guitarist Luke Rockets last month, following allegations of inappropriate behaviour, With Confidence have now released a statement to clarify their status as a band.
The Aussie pop-punks have stated that they will be “taking time off” – meaning that any upcoming touring is on hold, and the recording of their follow-up to debut album Better Weather has been postponed, too.
Read the full statement below:
We apologise that it has taken a few weeks to address the current status of the band. This decision has not been easy for the three of us. Together we have decided that With Confidence will be taking time off.
We have put all touring on hold and postponed the recording of our second album. We will instead be spending time at home with our families to personally process everything that has occurred. We need to and want to be a band that deals with their past, present, and future responsibly.
While we cannot change what has happened, we are taking steps to reflect and grow. Looking forward we want to work harder than ever to ensure we always do the right thing by our fans. We will do everything we can to contribute to making music a safe and positive place for all upon our return.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
