Set It Off have released a further statement following an online allegation made against guitarist Dan Clermont earlier this weekend.
Dan Clermont will be taking a hiatus from Set It Off, effective immediately.
"In light of the recent allegations regarding Dan Clermont, we have taken the necessary time to investigate this matter on both professional and personal levels before making a statement. We have jointly decided that he will be taking a hiatus and stepping away from Set It Off to spend time at home with his family and pursue this privately and legally.
"Thank you to all our amazing fans for standing by us during this time."
Additionally, Dan has released his own statement on Twitter.
"I'm deeply pained and hurt by the allegations that have been brought against me on Saturday. I've taken the proper legal channels to prove my innocence and investigate why someone would bring forth these false allegations against me. With that said, both myself and my fiancé feel that it is best to take some time away from the public eye and focus on moving forward from this. We will be following the advice of our legal counsel and pursuing appropriate action accordingly. I appreciate those of you who did not jump to conclusions and were respectful throughout this process.
"This has been very hard for all parties involved, so please respect myself and Sydney's privacy for the time being."
