A Day To Remember’s longtime bassist Joshua Woodard has cleared the air of the sexual allegations that were made against him that he says are “false.”
In a statement made to social media on Saturday (August 1), Woodard said that he’d like to “address the allegation that have circulated around the internet in recent weeks.”
“First, let me be clear that the events described never happened and these allegations are false.” Woodard added.
Woodard has remained silent for weeks on the allegations as he was exploring the proper channels to speak the topic legally.
“Up until now, I have remained silent because I do not feel it is appropriate to handle or debate this situation on social media.” He said. “Addressing this is my personal responsibility, and I have chosen to defend myself through the power legal channels.”
The bassist said that he will be dealing with the issues privately other then making this statement.
“Aside from releasing this statement, I will continue dealing with this matter privately in order to protect myself and my family.”
Woodard is expected to have his first child this month (August 2020) with his wife Christina.
Joshua Woodard and Christina wedded in back on September 22nd, 2019 in front of their close friends and family. Woodard is the second member in A Day To Remember to have a child, following behind frontman Jeremy McKinnon who welcomed his first child, Montana Nash McKinnon, back in December of 2017 with his wife Stephanie McKinnon.
A Day To Remember are slated to release their much-anticipated new album, You’re Welcome, sometime in 2020.
