A Day To Remember bassist Joshua Woodard exits band

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 1:23 PM PT / 42,657 views

A Day To Remember bass player and co-founder Joshua Woodard has exited the band after nearly two decades together.

Woodard was accused of sexual misconduct last year, allegations he publicly denied. However, in the wake of Bring Me The Horizon recruiting ADTR to support them on the their forthcoming headlining tour, those accusations have fervently resurfaced on social media.

As such, Woodard has announced his departure via the following statement:

"In the summer of 2020, I released a statement addressing false allegations that were made against me online. At the time, with the pandemic and my daughter on the way, I personally decided to pause legal proceedings against the accuser once the post was removed.

"These accusations have unfortunately resurfaced within the last few days, and I must act accordingly. It is not fair to my bandmates and brothers to be attached to or targeted because of any of this, so I have made the decision to step down from my position in the band as of today. I will be leaving tour to be with my family and continue to defend my innocence in these matters.

"I know who I am and who I am not. I admit, wholeheartedly, that I am not a perfect person and I have made mistakes in life. I strive every day I am given to be a better person, husband, father, bandmate, and friend.

"I appreciate those who have supported me and defended my name against the lies being spread, and I am sorry to those who have been negatively affected by them. This decision is the furthest thing from what I want, but it is unfortunately what is best. Being a member of ADTR has been the greatest honor and I am so thankful for the past 18 years."

If he's innocent and did nothing wrong why would he quit the band? I would stand my ground if that were the case.

I vaguely remember an interview where he boasted about whipping his dick out on stage and someone from the crowd sucked it. Not even his George Floyd and feminist worshipping can appease the hyenas once blood has been spilled.

I said years ago and I'll say it now. A rape to remember.


anonymous 12 days ago

Guys.... I'm a rape victim. I was at a post Calculating Infinity DEP show at the Trocadero back in the day and the lead singer of the Locust came out on stage naked swinging his pecker around. It was awful. To this day I'm still mentally scarred and every time I think about it I feel dirty and I start to cry. Imagine paying $30 to see the Dillinger Escape Plan play 43% Burnt without Dimitry... It was horrible.

They're the first people to hold others accountable for things that happened in their past so they deserve their own shitty medicine

This is bullshit. Josh slept around a lot in earlier years of the band but he's been in serious relationships the last decade. He never forced anyone to do anything they didn't want- this was consensual, and now she's grown up and regretting being slutty in her teenage years and ruining a man's life. The band should have his back- disappointed in Neil, Kevin, Alex, and especially Jeremy. Josh should have taken legal action over the summer. I hope he gets this straightened out and rejoins the tour in February. No one should lose their career over a 15 year old alleged incident. And f*ck all of you for mentioning the Tesla accident, can you imagine being a part of an accident like that? Shame on you. Support to the Woodard family.

"And f*ck all of you for mentioning the Tesla accident, can you imagine being a part of an accident like that? Shame on you. Support to the Woodard family." so basically.. "f*ck all of you for wanting to keep someone accountable for manslaughter" LOL yeah lets keep the dude who killed someone in our thoughts & prayers but not the dude who died you're a f*cking sub human retard


anonymous 11 days ago

If he was innocent and his bandmates stood behind him, why would he be forced to exit?


anonymous 11 days ago

^ Because the scene now placates to a vocal minority of safe space cry babies who believe in guilty until proven innocent and will basically make it impossible for you to work, guilty or innocent.

I can only imagine what kind of skeletons are in those closets


anonymous 11 days ago

If this was some random band guy I'd give him the benefit of the doubt until proven guilty but people have had stories about this guy for almost two decades....+ who crashes and kills someone in a Tesla? That thing is going to be repoed now...


anonymous 11 days ago

This crap is getting mighty old. People acting surprised that 'dudes in bands that typically have women throwing themselves onto them…have deviant sexual pasts'. Real shocking. There is a reason why the term 'sceneslut' use to exist. And it sounds like a bunch of them are all of a sudden starting to feel 'empowered', and want everyone else to pay for their actions,

^subhuman just admitted his fear of women feeling empowered


anonymous 10 days ago

^ Forcing your partner to pay for your decision to have consensual sex years ago that you regret now is not empowering, it is in fact, deeply infantilizing. Part of empowerment is responsibility, owning your decisions, good and bad and not blaming and punishing everyone else for the things you do. Give the man a trial or leave him alone. This isn't Salem.

A big problem is that females have been brainwashed into believing that there is absolutely zero difference between sex for a male and sex for a female, when in fact sex for a female is mostly emotional, as even a peanut could tell you. If you have a one night stand with a female, then the next day you take her out for breakfast and spend some time with her, she'll leave happy. But if you kick her out of bed the next morning, throw her clothes out the window, and she leaves in tears, it only takes a little prod from a friend or a website and she'll convince herself she was brutally graped. But if you

^ actual facts but if you post that on the internet you will be ripped apart. Funny thing is, 99.9% nobody will have this conversation in person. You're guilty based on some anonymous Instagram or twitter post from someone with revisionist history on what went down

^ actual facts but if you post that on the internet you will be ripped apart. Funny thing is, 99.9% nobody will have this conversation in person. You're guilty based on some anonymous Instagram or twitter post from someone with revisionist history on what went down ^^ You're absolutely correct. The other danger of this is that it trivialises proper abuse and proper rape. So whereas before we had a barometer of sexual abuse, feminism has rendered it "fluid" and subjective, resulting in fully grown adult women claiming rape and claiming mental abuse because Louis CK jerked his pecker in front of them for a few seconds, whilst one of the women laughed. "Mattress girl" is another perfect example. Went to the police to claim she was raped after sending messages to the guy she hooked up with saying that she had a great time the other night and wondered if he wanted to meet up again for more sex. That's why she dropped the police and ran to the feminist Uni council.
