PVRIS announced on social media Wednesday (Aug. 26) that the band parted ways with guitarist Alex Babinksi after sexual misconduct allegations about him surfaced.
"We have been made aware of the allegations involving Alex Babinski. We absolutely and emphatically will not tolerate sexual harassment, coercion and all other forms of sexual misconduct – online and offline. It is our responsibility to ensure and provide a safe space within the PVRIS community and to believe and support victims and survivors," the U.S. rock outfit wrote as part of its official Twitter statement. "As of today Alex will no longer be associated with PVRIS. He will be handling these matters privately and professionally."
A representative for the band had no additional comment for Billboard. PVRIS is originally comprised of Babinski, lead vocalist Lynn Gunn and bass guitarist Brian MacDonald.
