Singer-Songwriter Alex Calder has been dropped from record label Captured Tracks following a sexual assault allegation.
Calder, who was previously in a Mac DeMarco’s old band Makeout Videotape, will also have his previous releases pulled from all streaming services the label confirmed in statement.
“Recently, an allegation of sexual assault against Alex Calder has come to our attention,” the label said on Facebook. “We have been working tirelessly to speak with all parties involved and are no longer working with Alex moving forward.
“We feel it is important to preserve the privacy of the third party involved, and therefore we do not feel it is our place as company to share any further details. We will not be proceeding with the release of his album, previously set to come out October 20th.”
“We’ve been doing our best due-diligence in finding the truth of the allegations and respecting the third party as much as possible, none of these decisions were made hastily as this is obviously a serious matter that goes beyond the normal remit of being a record label.”
