Many of you understandably want to know if we knew what Ian was doing. To be clear: We did not. We knew that Ian was a difficult character. Our personal relationships with him had deteriorated in recent years to a point that working together was a constant, miserable challenge. But despite his battles with drugs, his egotistic behaviour, and the resulting fractures and frustrations within our band, we never imagined him capable of behaviour of the type he has now admitted.

We are heartbroken, angry, and disgusted at what has been revealed. This is something that will haunt us for the rest of our lives. Being in a band has always been a labour of love and a platform to inspire people, not to take advantage of them. It's still hard to believe this is happening and that someone we were once so close to has destroyed so many lives, lying every step of the way.
Our hearts go out to Ian's family, the fans and friends he betrayed, and most importantly, the victims of his crimes and others like them. We hope for justice, but also that Ian will truly take responsibility for what he's done. We would urge any other victims to contact the authorities.

Jamie, Lee, Luke, Mike and Stu"
Well said by his bandmates.

I hope he's repeatedly raped violently in prison.

Me too. Yeah, really sucks for them. Even if they continue on without him, the band's name will forever be tainted.

The name will never be used again.

I read some large chain has already pulled all their stuff and will no longer sell it.

Indeed, the band officially broke up a few months ago. I'm sure they'll do something new, but as soon as they do the headlines linking them to the old name will come out. It's going to take them years to get away from this.

That's without all the questions along the lines of "how could they not know when apparently fans online knew" etc.

its probably going to haunt them forever. they could wait 10 years to re-emerge, and there will probably still be that one idiot in the crowd to yell something out.

Maybe dude had his own bus and they only really saw each other on stage. Not uncommon really.

Allegations go back to 2007, they broke around 2009/2010, so he's been at this as long as they have been doing this professionally basically. The band and management should absolutely be investigated, all well and good not knowing this if they were anything but musicians, but the touring lifestyle has too much living in each others pockets. Specially since they only really play huge shows in the UK, they were never as big anywhere else. I mean they could be totally innocent, but if they were, then I expect they'd have no problem being investigated.
