Neck Deep guitarist, Lloyd Roberts, has left the band after allegations of sexual misconduct with a minor surfaced on Tumblr. Recently a 17-year-old claims that Lloyd asked for nude photographs and sent the girl explicit messages and photos. She claims the events happened two years ago when she was 15 years old.
Other claims have been made against the band but mostly are focused on guitarist Lloyd Roberts and bass player Fil Thorpe-Evans and consist of explicit messages/photos between the girls and themselves. Roberts initially tweeted a response yesterday saying “If any one thinks I’ve done something wrong, please tell the police. I’ll be more than happy to help,” and “My previous statement still stands, until the point I hear otherwise I’m going to carry on with my life. Outside the internet.” but has since deleted his twitter.
We cannot verify the authenticity of these accusations now.
Neck Deep doesn’t expect having to cancel any shows now but we will keep you all updated on the situation when anything arrises.
