Bassist Joshua Woodard has announced his departure from A Day To Remember with a statement he’s issued on his personal Twitter. The news comes days after the band announced their European tour with Bring Me The Horizon, Lorna Shore and Poorstacy.
In his departure notice, he touched on his reasons for leaving the band, reiterating they were based around recently resurfaced allegations of assault that were first brought up last year and that he didn’t want the band “to be attached to or targeted” because of these allegations. Josh also maintains he will “defend his innocence in these matters.” Read his full statement below.
