A Day To Remember’s Josh Woodard Steps Down From The Band After Previously Denied Allegations Resurface


A Day To Remember bassist Josh Woodard has announced that he has stepped down from the band. His departure comes following a resurgence of allegations of past sexual misconduct—allegations which he publicly denied last year.

In a statement issued regarding his departure today, October 13th, he stated:

“In the summer of 2020, I released a statement addressing false allegations that were made against me online. At the time, with the pandemic and my daughter on the way, I personally decided to pause legal proceedings against the accuser once the post was removed.

These accusations have unfortunately resurfaced within the last few days, and I must act accordingly. It is not fair to my bandmates and brothers to be attached to or targeted because of any of this, so I have made the decision to step down from my position in the band as of today. I will be leaving tour to be with my family and continue to defend my innocence in these matters.

I know who I am and who I am not. I admit, wholeheartedly, that I am not a perfect person and I have made mistakes in life. I strive every day I am given to be a better person, husband, father, bandmate, and friend.

I appreciate those who have supported me and defended my name against the lies being spread, and I am sorry to those who have been negatively affected by them. This decision is the furthest thing from what I want, but it is unfortunately what is best. Being a member of ADTR has been the greatest honor and I am so thankful for the past 18 years.”

A Day To Remember themselves have yet to publicly address Woodard‘s departure which has occurred amid the Floridan metalcore/pop punk outfit’s ongoing headlining tour with Asking Alexandria and Point North.
