Following Islander taking to social media earlier this week to announce that they had been removed from Warped Tour for damage sustained to shared backlineKorn's Brian 'Head' Welch has weighed in on the situation.

Yesterday Islander released an additional statement, clarifying the reasons they were removed from the line-up and providing video of the incident which lead to their removal. 

This additional statement explaining the situation moved Brian Welch to the point of making a statement of his own.

Taking to his facebook page, the the Korn guitarist posted "Band gets kicked off Alt/punk/hard core tour for being too wild? Not even a warning? WILD is what Vans Warped Tour has been all about for decades! L A M E".

Not really surprising that Brian would stand up to defend Islander- he's always been a pretty big fan of the band. See his tweet from 2014 below:
