Noble Steed Music have announced that they have cut ties with Flaw frontman Christopher Volz in the wake of his use of a racial slur onstage this past Friday, March 12th. The incident happened while the band were performing live in Chicago, IL. Noble Steed Music had been handling the distribution of Volz‘s 2016 solo album “Redemption” and two albums from his Five.Bolt.Main project.

Upon learning of Volz‘s actions earlier today, March 16th, the label’s founder Jason Spiewak issued the below statement:

“We will be ceasing distribution of these titles effective ASAP, as we do not support racism of any kind. We fully denounce racist speech and are taking action. Further, we will be donating our portion of Volz’s recent label proceeds to the NAACP.”

In the below footage from the aforementioned concert, Volz was filmed saying from the stage:

“There’s three of you N****s sitting right there [pointing]. I’d like one of you to come up here. You’re all white, so that’s not racist.

One of you guys need to come up here. I want one of you to come up here and hear these center wedges before we finish, just so you know what I actually went through tonight and how badass it is that I actually had no wedges.

Hey! I’m not fuckin’ around! One of you motherfuckers comes up on stage and listens to these wedges before we finish, otherwise you’re all getting rolled.”

Volz would go on to issue a since deleted post denouncing cancel culture via his Facebook over the weekend (you can still read it here), before issuing the below apology for his actions earlier today:

“Hey Flaw Family, I need to address the recent video and backlash that surfaced this weekend. I made a huge mistake and in the heat of my anger I used an unacceptable group of words towards another white person. I in no way meant it to be a racial thing and it is being construed on social media as if I made a statement about my beliefs and that is simply not true.

Anyone who knows me knows that I have always been an advocate for equality and even wrote a song called ‘Bleed Red‘ 5 years ago that was all about ending racism (link below). Flaw has always had all genders and races on our team, from managers to agents to labels to road crew and we always will.

I have worked so hard for the past 25 years to build my career and I don’t want something like this to ruin it for anyone. I take responsibility for my actions, apologize for my melt down and hope that you can all forgive me.”
