Dead Crown drummer exits band amid allegations

Thursday, September 3, 2020 5:19 PM PT

Portland, Oregon metalcore band Dead Crown (Stay Sick Recordings) have announced the departure of drummer Bryton Wilson.

The group issued the following explanation:

"Bryton Wilson is stepping back from the band. The decision to focus on mental health, proper actions, and focusing on work/personal life is more important. Taking a step away allows the focus to be on more important things first."

Wilson's exit comes just days after multiple allegations of abusive behavior surfaced on social media. Wilson preemptively countered one of the accusers, who has since deleted her Twitter account.

Meanwhile, several users on Dead Crown's Facebook and Instagram accounts claim the band has been deleting comments pertaining to the allegations against Wilson.
