Front Porch Step will not be appearing at any further dates of Warped.

Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman has given his reasons for allowing Front Porch Step's controversial performance in Nashville to go ahead yesterday.

Speaking to Nashville Scene, Lyman confirmed that the performance was part of Front Porch Step (real name Jake Mcelfresh)'s current therapy, and that he was not paid for the performance.

He added: "This was a one-time supervised part of a rehabilitation process. The other process could’ve been, just like anyone, if he had to go to trial or court. Since no one has filed a charge, for me it’s time to move on. He’s not on the whole tour, this is one piece of a puzzle of trying to bring people back that have made mistakes in their lives."
