Minneapolis, Minnesota black metal band False has called it quits after learning of sexual assault allegations involving one of its members.

The group has issued the following statement:

"We were recently made aware of accusations of sexual assault against a member of False. The rest of the group believes the survivor and stands with all survivors of rape, assault, or abuse. No other part of False or Gilead Media was aware of this single member's reprehensible, inexcusable behavior.

"Effective immediately False will cease to exist. The band is over, and we have permanently severed creative ties with the accused member. To be part of a creative community is a privilege. No person that has perpetrated any type abuse or assault can be given a position of power or influence to prey upon others."

Launched a decade ago, False most recently released an album with Gilead Media in 2019.
