Rotting Out accused of ripping off fans

Thursday, May 26, 2016 11:15 AM PT


Defunct Los Angeles, CA punk/hardcore outfit Rotting Out has apparently stoked the ire of some fans in recent months by not properly fulfilling merch orders. Of course, the March arrest of frontman Walter Delgado couldn't have helped matters, but Delgado has been free on bond since March 22 (he is still awaiting a preliminary hearing).

Yesterday we received an email from a disgruntled fan stating that he ordered a hat two months ago. The item has yet to arrive and emails to the band haven't been acknowledged. According to the fan, "they don't seem to reply or give a shit." A quick cruise of the band's Facebook reveals that this isn't an isolated incident either:


Rotting Out fans complain on Facebook


Hopefully there's an explanation for the missed orders and fans will be accommodated accordingly.


UPDATE: We've received the following statement from the folks that run Rotting Out's merch store:

"Regarding the webstore shipping delay. I'd like to apologize for the lack of communication as issues beyond my control were being addressed. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience. I have made the necessary arrangements to proceed with shipping as of tomorrow (5/27). If you'd still like your order it will ship this weekend or if you would prefer a refund please request one today.

- No one in Rotting Out has any control over the webstore.
- None of the payments submitted have been accessed or withdrawn from PayPal.
- No one is getting ripped off."

If you don't have anyone left to complain to, always turn to the goat to resolve your petty issues unnecessarily publicly. HAIL THE GOAT

They should've asked their parents to call their credit card company ages ago to reverse the payments.

If you want merch, buy it at a show. Cheaper and it's right there in front of you. Then you can stop complaining about not gettinng your shitty scumbag band merch and go on with your life. 70 for a fcking hat? I'm glad he didn't get it. Maybe he learned a lesson from this.

Kid who's mad about losing $70 on a hat of a band that'll be fully irrelevant in less than 5 years probably also lost money on a Jonny Craig MacBook deal.

They could easily move their classic '94 concrete split with NAILS (when Todd Jones fronted both bands) for a bil.
