UPDATE: Luke Rockets is no longer in With Confidence. Read the band’s statement here.
With Confidence guitarist Luke Rockets has been accused of inappropriate behaviour with a young fan.
The allegations – made on Facebook, by a friend of the victim – come with a number of screenshots said to feature conversations between the pair.
“She was 14 at the time and he was 22, about to turn 23,” reads the post.
“He began to ask about her feet in a really undesirable manner, and slowly the conversation acquired a sexual nature. He asked her about kinks, and other adult concepts.”
“It got to a point where my friend was so sure that he’d attempt something inappropriate with her in person next time they saw each other, that we sold the tickets we had for their next show and did not end up going.”
In light of the allegations, Knuckle Puck have removed With Confidence from the remainder of their US tour, which still has dates in Pittsburgh, Toronto, Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit and Columbus.
There’s no news yet as to whether they’ll still be supporting Tonight Alive on their UK tour next March.
Due to information that has come to light, With Confidence will not be appearing at the last six shows of our US tour.
