UPDATE: The Orwells have broken up.
Twin Peaks bassist Jack Dolan tweeted in support of the cancellation of The Orwells' Chicago show following allegations of sexual misconduct against members of the band. "I’ll go ahead and speak for the rest of @TwinPeaksDudes because i know we all feel the same," Jack wrote. "We don’t affiliate, condone or support anything about [The Orwells]. They have a lot to answer for."
Twin Peaks posted another statement about the allegations on Twitter following Jack's reply. "It has come to our attention that some people and publications are applauding us for denouncing The Orwells," they write. "We are here to say that it was not us, but a group of strong women that had the courage to make the truth public about The Orwells' abusive, abhorrent behavior. It was there women who are doing the hard work and had the strength to come out and do what should have been done a long time ago. It was these women who compiled so many testimonies of victims, which is a huge feat in itself." Read their full statement below.
The Orwells stated that they "emphatically deny these baseless allegations brought as a personal attack against us."
