Miss Fortune dropped by Sumerian after arrest

Mikey Sawyer An hour ago, Miss Fortune revealed that they would no longer be taking part in their fall U.S. tour with The Word Alive et al. Here's what they had to say:
"Dear fans and friends alike, we are sad and sorry to announce that we will no longer be performing on the Get Real Tour with The Word Alive and others. Sometimes things are just out of our control. We love you all and hope we can see you again. We still encourage you to go out and see The Word Alive and the other bands on the tour."
Some thirty minutes later, their record label, Sumerian Records, announced that they had dropped the band:
"Sumerian Records has dropped Miss Fortune. We do not condone domestic violence, nor would we ever support an artist that does."
What went down? Apparently, Miss Fortune frontman Mikey Sawyer was arrested and jailed on October 24 in Tulsa, OK for domestic assault and battery (his mug shot can be seen above). His next court appearance is on November 4. The other members of the band have subsequently issued the following statement:
"We'd like to point out that the actions of one band member do not represent the actions and viewpoints of the entire band. Yes our singer Mikey is in jail, but no we DO NOT condone his actions. We DO NOT condone domestic abuse. If you've met anyone of us in person I'm sure you know we're a cool bunch of dudes. Saying Miss Fortune condones domestic abuse is a lie, so stop saying it. Thank you. "

Off the tour and off the label ! That's such a Miss Fortune ! ...................... Someone had to say it

anonymous 10/29/2014 6:27:31 PM

A bunch of cool dudes? I've met them and the lead singer is not the only jerk. Josh was a complete douchebag and goes after underage girls.

anonymous 10/29/2014 6:30:13 PM

i know all you lambgoat gays are going to get butthurt over this comment but lay off the slander for the rest of the band. Mikey is the one in the wrong here, not the others. The rest of the dudes just got shafted by his fck ups & unfortunately have to pay for it. Whether you like them or not, that's the honest truth.

anonymous 10/29/2014 6:44:06 PM

trust me, i'm all aboard the joke train, dude above me. but i'm sure if these were YOUR close friends being bashed, you'd feel differently.

anonymous 10/29/2014 6:48:45 PM

Legitimately heard he beat up his grandpa, and that's why he got arrested.

anonymous 10/29/2014 7:12:05 PM

Miley was turned down by my gf and continued on to call her names and jeer her to "suck his *ick"... Classy. He deserves whatever he had coming.

anonymous 10/29/2014 7:25:05 PM

"The rest of us are cool, we promise!" - Miss Fortune

anonymous 10/29/2014 8:26:12 PM

I understand from a family member there may have been extenuating circumstances. Haven't been able to find out what happened yet but if what I heard was true, then I don't blame him. Not saying I condone it but I wouldn't blame him.

anonymous 10/29/2014 8:31:04 PM

Tell all your friends. Shout it from rooftops. Spread the word: Miss Fortune supports domestic violence.

anonymous 10/29/2014 8:32:41 PM

Dumb fcking hick. I must say though Oklahoma and domestic violence go together like biscuits and gravy.

He beat up his girl in frustration after not receiving his As Blood Runs Black digital download.

He beat up his girl in frustration after not receiving his As Blood Runs Black digital download. Actually, I heard it was a ticket to see the Emmure vs. Acacia Strain tour. His girl took money out of their savings to get her nails done. Bitch had it cominig.

This dude was in Close Your Eyes for a while. Some of the dudes in CYE had a band called Beatin Up Girls.. So Miss Fortune AND Close Your Eyes condone domestic violence. Victory should drop them.

hmmmm why is it always the weakest sounding bands who get in the most awkward situations with crime?

anonymous 10/30/2014 12:55:37 AM

Name-dropping this band at a club would NEVER get Ash laid, so he dropped them. The bullshit jail circumstance was just a solid opportunity he saw to get rid of a band that didn't sell records. Now Circa Survive: THAT'S a band you can name drop = panty drop.

genghisjohn 10/30/2014 1:14:42 AM

Miss Fortune Ironic band name, titled after the bitch he would eventually beat

genghisjohn 10/30/2014 1:16:50 AM

All bitches are beaten in Tulsa

Sometimes, I will take a huge shit and kneel down and squish some in my hands. It's a texture thing really, like play doh through my fingers. It's exhilarating.

anonymous 10/30/2014 6:10:31 AM

Miss Fortune condone domestic abuse. They knew their singer was a dick, but didn't have the balls to get rid of him. Pussies

anonymous 10/30/2014 10:08:43 AM

To the people defending Ash... He would of never dropped the band had they been making money. If one of the guys in Asking Alexandria beat his gf, they would still be on the roster and some bullshit press statement would be released.

anonymous 10/30/2014 10:10:00 AM

Sumerian is the new NFL of Record Labels

"To the people defending Ash... He would of never dropped the band had they been making money. If one of the guys in Asking Alexandria beat his gf, they would still be on the roster and some bullshit press statement would be released." I wanted to make this comment. Agreed 100%

anonymous 10/30/2014 10:20:56 AM

The best scenario for Ash: he has the perfect out to drop loser band that doesn't sell AND comes off like the white knight.

anonymous 10/30/2014 10:28:31 AM

trust me, i'm all aboard the joke train, dude above me. but i'm sure if these were YOUR close friends being bashed, you'd feel differently. Get better friends

To the people defending Ash... He would of never dropped the band had they been making money. If one of the guys in Asking Alexandria beat his gf, they would still be on the roster and some bullshit press statement would be released. ^This. I remember the video when Asking Alexandria called out their singer saying he needed rehab after the fcker jumped off stage and started punching the shit out of some dude in the crowd. Sumerian never said shit then.

anonymous 10/30/2014 11:24:28 AM

Sure hope he gets a regulation haircut before being put in general population. He gonna get beatd.

It was a family thing. Just because he can be an ass makes everyone so quick to judge and believe it was a woman. It was not.

anonymous 10/31/2014 7:11:19 AM

Bet they wouldn't have dropped them if it was Asking Alexandria aka Paycheck for Ash

anonymous 10/31/2014 8:55:25 AM

Breaking news: Terror is selling shoelaces. That is all. Thought you gays might like that

snoopy2 11/1/2014 3:17:30 PM

Scene kids. At sixteen they were beating the air and at twenty nine they're beating women. No time in their life will they actually learn how to man up and fight other men.

HailRussia 11/2/2014 6:39:38 AM

What a piece of shit. Dumb-ass learns he is a gay and beats down the girlfriend. Retard will enjoy getting fcked by the black in prison.

anonymous 11/5/2014 11:34:04 AM

I hard his grandpa admitted he was the one drunk and abusive and the judge dismissed the case.

anonymous 11/24/2014 3:13:24 AM

He was released. He was defending his grandmother. Read this article and then feel like an a-hole for jumping to conclusions. http://www.underthegunrevi ew.net/2014/11/13/mikey-sa wyer-cleared-of-domestic-a buse-charges-will-stay-as- frontman-of-miss-fortune/
