Sorority Noise and Old Gray frontman Cam Boucher issued a new statement following an accusation of rape that was made against him earlier this year. He shares the statement after having, he says, “a positive and constructive conversation with a person who, eight months ago, was pressured into making a statement about me online,” and continues, “we felt this note, which has been approved both by myself and the other person involved, was a step in the right direction. Although we are each valid in our own experiences, we agree that anything that did occur between us was not purposeful or malicious. This person has made peace with a situation they would not have shared publicly under other circumstances.” Read the statement in full below.

Sorority Noise and Old Gray both cancelled tour dates following the allegation against Boucher, which was made by former The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die member Nicole Schoenholz. She said Boucher “raped a friend of mine.” Boucher called the allegation “baseless” at the time, saying, “I take accusations of sexual violence and nonconsent very seriously. Since last night, I have taken the time to have honest conversations with previous intimate partners and given them the room to share if they had any experiences with me that were nonconsensual or disrespectful in any way.”

The other day I had a positive and constructive conversation with a person who, eight months ago, was pressured into making a statement about me online. This conversation was important to both of us, and I’m grateful we were able to speak on our experiences and what we could do positively going forward.

We felt this note, which has been approved both by myself and the other person involved, was a step in the right direction. Although we are each valid in our own experiences, we agree that anything that did occur between us was not purposeful or malicious. This person has made peace with a situation they would not have shared publicly under other circumstances.

I have been in intensive therapy for the past eight months and over that time I’ve been working towards growth, being mindful, and moving forward. I appreciate your reading of this note, be well.

– Cam
