Sleep have cancelled their scheduled New Zealand and Australian trek, stating that they had no choice. The group discovered allegations of sexual harassment, as well as verbal and physical abuse made against the tour’s promoter, Dave Cutbush of Life is Noise. The group shared the following statement:
“We have learned today of allegations of sexual harassment and verbal and physical abuse by Dave Cutbush of Life is Noise. We cannot and will not tolerate this behavior with anyone. We cannot tolerate or work with those who are complicit in this behavior either. In light of this, and with utmost respect to those affected, it is with great regret that we must cancel our planned tour of New Zealand and Australia this coming January. We hope to arrange another tour with a new promoter or touring company, to be determined at a future date.
Stay safe and make your voices heard.
