Chvrches has revealed that they have had to hire extra security and police officers at their shows, following a slew of rape and death threats received from Chris Brown fans.

Last week, Chvrches criticised collaborator Marshmello’s decision to work with Brown, citing his history of abuse and abuse allegations.

“We like and respect Mello as a person but working with people who are predators and abusers enables, excuses and ultimately tacitly endorses that behavior. That is not something we can or will stand behind,” they said.

Brown later hit back at the band, saying that “they’re the type of people I wish walked in front of a speeding bus full of mental patients.”

Frontwoman Lauren Mayberry also revealed some of the rape and death threats she’d received from Chris Brown fans since releasing that statement, and now she’s revealed that the band has had to up their security at their shows.

She also said that she will not be returning to her home once the band’s tour is wrapped due to safety concerns.
