As reported by Pitchfork, Canadian punk band Zex has been dropped from its label, Magic Bullet Data, over some sexual assault allegations which have been introduced up in opposition to guitarist Jo Capitalcide. In a press release posted on the label’s web site, it explains that it acquired emails about Capitalcide’s alleged historical past of assault just lately and was in a position to corroborate some particulars after speaking to Zex singer Gretchen Metal (who’s in a relationship with Capitalcide). Due to that, Magic Bullet has determined to instantly drop Zex. The assertion goes on to say that it is going to be making donations to RAINN and Cornerstone Housing For Ladies in Ontario, and it is going to be providing refunds to anybody who purchased Zex’s most up-to-date album.
This information comes only a day or so after a number of Zex songs have been mistakenly pressed onto vinyl copies of Beyoncé’s Lemonade, giving the band an unexpectedly massive highlight. Neither Zex or Beyoncé actually had something to do with that, although, Columbia Data blamed it on the processing plant that bodily makes the information.
