Another one bites the dust! The on going wave of sexual misconduct allegations in the music business has hit With Confidence guitarist Luke Rockets today. He’s been accused of inappropriate behavior with a 14-year old female fan by her friend on Facebook:
He began to ask about her feet in a really undesirable manner, and slowly the conversation acquired a sexual nature. He asked her about kinks, and other adult concepts. I’d like to stress that he was aware that my friend was underage since he knew that we could not get into their 18+ shows. […] At this point he was already 23, and the sexual nature of the conversations had begun to escalate even more. She would never directly say that she was uncomfortable, but in some cases she would not reply and make excuses as to why she hadn’t.

With Confidence have reacted by removing Luke Rockets from the band. They’ve released the following statement:
Knuckle Puck who was slated to tour with With Confidence also took action: they have booted the band off their tour:
Due to information that has come to light, With Confidence will not be appearing at the last six shows of our US tour.— Knuckle Puck (@KnucklePuckIL) November 13, 2017
