Both bands have now made statements.

Following allegations of misconduct made against members of the band L.I.F.T. earlier today, Set It Off have announced that they have removed them from their upcoming headline tour.

The announcement was made in a short statement posted to Twitter, which you can read in full below:

"After the allegations and stories were brought to our attention by our fans, we have made the decision to remove L.I.F.T. from our upcoming headline tour.

Having a safe and fun environment at all of our shows is a top priority for us and something we take seriously.

We believe that it is important for every voice to be heard and we support that notion wholeheartedly.

We promise we will always listen."

In response to the allegations, L.I.F.T. have also made a statement on Twitter, which you can read in full below:

"In the last few days we’ve been made aware of situations where people felt that we have been inappropriate at a show. When we first heard about it we were shocked to find out that anyone had left our interactions feeling uncomfortable. To those who have walked away from meeting us feeling disrespected or unsafe in any way, please know that would never be out intention and that we’re genuinely sorry. We want you to know that we are listening, and we want to do everything in our power to help make our shows a safe space for everyone, especially women.

This is all new for us, meeting fans, signings, and while it’s a dream come true we also raise that our inexperience lead to trying to take photos and sign for people without any order. Moving forward, we will take extra precautions needed to make sure everyone is comfortable and safe.

We really hope this helps put some of you at ease, and again, we are incredibly sorry to anyone who has been made uncomfortable. Thank you to our fan base for being there for us - just know we would never do anything to jeopardise this family, it is everything to us."
