Six months after a sexual assault allegation against lead singer Ben Hopkins, indie rock duo PWR BTTM briefly reappeared on Twitter last night. The band’s official account, dormant since the publication of a second statement denying allegations, posted a vintage-looking photo of a person sitting on a motorcycle. After remaining up for about 12 hours, the tweet was deleted Monday afternoon. See a screenshot below.
Brand New frontman Jesse Lacey has responded to accusations of sexual misconduct. In a lengthy Facebook post, Lacey says that he "developed a dependent and addictive relationship with sex," leading him to "hurt people, mistreated them, lied, and cheated."
