Today, Perth four-piece Good Doogs have shared that they’ll be pulling out of all upcoming live dates, including appearances at Falls Festival, Yours & Owls and more amidst allegations of sexual misconduct.
Earlier this week, serious allegations toward the band were made by one of the band members’ former partner via Instagram. In the posts, they detailed serious accusations of sexual misconduct and emotional abuse.
In a post made to Facebook today, the band indicated that the band’s drummer and manager Michael Grainger has left the group in order to “get to the bottom of these serious allegations”. They’ve said that he “is speaking to authorities to take the correct avenues for all people involved.”
They said that they “in no way condone any of the allegations of unwanted sexual attention that have been screen-shotted and shared online.”
Alongside the news that they’re pulling out of all of their forthcoming live dates, they’ve also said that they “will be taking some time to reflect on what has happened and work out how to best move forward”. They haven’t indicated how long that might be for.
