Cameron Boucher, the frontman of American rock band Sorority Noise, has denied the rape allegations made against him.
Earlier today, Far Out reported the news that Sorority Noise had decided to cancel their current tour due to rape allegations made against Boucher. The allegations are made by former The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die guitarist Nicole Schoenholz, who has accused Boucher of raping her friend. The alleged victim then came forward on Reddit, claiming that Boucher raped her as she slept in 2013.
Now, as the band announce a hiatus due to the current state of Boucher’s mental health, the frontman has released a statement addressing the current accusations, he said: “I would like to firmly state that her accusations are false.
“I take accusations of sexual violence and nonconsent very seriously,” he continued in a statement published on Twitter. “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.
“Following those dialogues, I can confirm that the accusations against me are baseless.”
