Seven different women have spoken up accusing the indie musician of predatory behavior where he tried to touch, kiss and grope them without consent.
On Friday news surfaced that indie rock band Real Estate's co-founding guitarist Matt Mondanile had left the band last year over allegations of sexual misconduct. Now, Spin has published an article detailing seven accounts by women, accusing Mondanile of predatory behavior.
In the article, women recall scenarios where Mondanile typically used his position in a band to touch, kiss and grope them without their consent. Some of them were fans, others were fellow musicians. Two women alleged he touched them inappropriately them while they were sleeping and another said he did so while she was trying to sleep.
The oldest allegation against Mondanile dates back to 2005, when he was a student at Hampshire College and a fellow student named Elizabeth said he at least twice snuck into her dorm room, got into her bed and groped her while she slept.
