While Crown The Empire have yet to publicly address their absence from the trek as of press time, rumors have been swirling recently among the the internet that it may be due to allegations shared earlier this year by a woman claiming to be an ex of Crown The Empire guitarist/vocalist Brian Hoover.

That woman came forward on social media with allegations of physical and substance abuse against Hoover. She has been publicly sharing her allegations on social media, claiming that the violent incident in question took place last fall. Thus far, it doesn’t appear that Hoover nor the band have publicly responded to the allegations.

A compiled collection of some of the allegations she has shared against Hoover can be found below. She has also shared what appear to be screencaps of her conversations with Hoover and some of his former bandmates, including ex-Crown The Empire drummer Brent Taddie on Twitter.

Crown The Empire were originally announced to join Slipknot and Ice Nine Kills on a tour this fall, though it is unclear if they will still be taking part. The scheduled dates for that run include:

09/20 Nashville, TN – Bridgestone Arena
09/21 Springfield, MO – Great Southern Bank Arena
