Select PWR BTTM shows have been cancelled in the past few days, including the Brooklyn release show that would have happened on Friday (5/12) and Bled Fest and Hopscotch Fest, and now they have cancelled their entire tour. Pitchfork points out that St. Louis venue Off Broadway posted on Facebook, “This just in: PWR BTTM is cancelling all upcoming shows until further notice. The band will be making a formal statement early next week.”

The tour cancellation follows accusations of “sexual abuse, predatory behavior, and anti-semitism” against PWR BTTM’s Ben Hopkins, and a survivor detailing her assault by Ben Hopkins in an interview with Jezebel. Both of PWR BTTM’s labels, Polyvinyl and Father/Daughter, have dropped them and have ceased to sell or distribute their music. They were also dropped by their management company, touring members Cameron West and Nicholas Cummins left the band, and upcoming tourmates Nnamdi Ogbonnaya, T-Rexstasy, Tancred and Ratboys all dropped off the tour prior to the cancellation.

The cancelled tour dates include the show at NYC’s Webster Hall on June 21. All affected dates are listed below.
