Dustie Waring Issues Statement On Rape Allegation, Will Sit Out Between The Buried And Me’s Summer Tour


Betweeen The Buried And Me have announced that their guitarist Dustie Waring will not be taking part in their summer tour celebrating their 2012 album “The Parallax II: Future Sequence“. That run is scheduled to take place starting on June 16th and feature Thank You Scientist and Rivers Of Nihil.

Waring‘s absence from the tour comes about in the wake of this rape allegation, which was anonymously made against him on Reddit this past weekend. The alleged victim insisted in her statement Waring took advantage of her while she was drunk several years ago. She also claims that she was impregnated during the alleged incident and later had an abortion as a result.

Waring himself has since issued the below statement via his social media earlier today (May 02nd) on the matter:

“I have recently been made aware of allegations from 5 years ago which were posted this weekend on Reddit. I do not condone non-consensual sex and have never acted without consent in any part of my private life or maliciously taken advantage of anyone.

These allegations have come as a complete shock, having dedicated my life to being of service to people that need help in many forms of recovery. I will therefore be taking some time to spend with my family to focus on maintaining my several years of sobriety which will include sitting out the Parallax II tour.

With the exception of this statement, I will be dealing with this matter privately with my bandmates and discussing any future action with my lawyer in order to protect myself and my family.”

Speaking today as well, Between The Buried And Me themselves offered:
