Moose Blood have announced their hiatus after being removed from the line up of Good Charlotte's Alexandra Palace show.
The American group will play the historic North London point on February 20th, part of a wider European tour from the band.
Kent emo outfit Moose Blood were initially named as support, despite a number of accusations being lodged against the musicians.
Drummer Glenn Harvey left the band early last year following allegations of “inappropriate behaviour”, while frontman Eddy Brewerton was accused of stealing nude pictures from a woman’s phone – he denies the allegations.
In light of this, Good Charlotte have decided to remove Moose Blood from the line up, saying:
GC fans in EU&UK, we’ve decided to remove Moose Blood from our recently announced tour, scheduled for this Feb. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we feel we have a commitment to keep to ourselves, our fans & our community. Stay tuned for further support announcements soon— Good Charlotte (@GoodCharlotte) September 24, 2018
In turn, Moose Blood have decided to go on hiatus. Citing what they termed "false allegations" the band wrote:
"It has been a traumatic past year or so that has left us feeling like we need to step away. We need to concentrate on all the good we have in our lives without constant concern of what may happen next. We need to be around the people we love, and the people that love us, and focus on our health and happiness."
Here's the full statement.
Good Charlotte's Alexandra Palace show will go ahead as planned on February 20th.
