“Last weekend there were some very serious allegations made against myself and other band members of Neck Deep,” he reportedly told the Post. “I was horrified and sickened by these accusations. I have now instructed lawyers and contacted the police, in order to clear my name and to be proactive in confronting these allegations. I took the immediate decision to take a break from the band, which was a gut-wrenching decision, as we have all worked so hard to get where we have and I do not want to let any of our fans down. I hope our fans understand.”
Neck Deep shared a statement, shortly after acknowledging the situation, announcing that Roberts would be leaving the band.
Neck Deep released their sophomore album, Life’s Not Out To Get You, this month on Hopeless Records. It has sold over 18,000 copies in the U.S. in the first week.
