Miss Fortune dropped by Sumerian after arrest

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 5:02 PM PT


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. "

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Miss Fortune

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

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.
