Combichrist kicks out support act Death On The Dance Floor after band member is accused of being a pedophile
|26 Jul, 2014|
(By Bernard Van Isacker / DJ Wildhoney) It's internet drama allover again. Combichrist will soon start the 2nd part of their "We Love Tour" and for the occasion they had enlisted Death On The Dance Floor. Little did they know that the name of bandmember Dahvie Vanity is popping up here and there regarding pedophile behaviour. After receiving a lot of negative feedback from their fans on the support act Death On The Dance Floor, Combichrist decided to drop the band from the tour.
In a Facebook message Combichrist says: "As you’ve seen with all of our tours, when we select our support acts, we attempt to bring acts that will help introduce Combichrist to fans outside of our fanbase. This has worked well for us in the past, and it was in this spirit that we invited Blood On The Dance Floor to tour with us. Like all announcements, we knew that this decision would be met with some concern but we thought that the different styles would be the source of conversation. We were not aware of the controversy about their past behavior. It has been difficult to read everything posted today; our sole goal is to bring you a kick ass tour that you can be excited and proud of and it’s become clear that we won’t be able to do that with the choice we made. As a result we have released Blood On The Dance Floor from this tour and are rethinking our direct support. We expect to have a new announcement for you shortly."
Blood On The Dance Floor also made a statement on their Facebook page: "Due to unfortunate circumstances, we must announce that we will no longer be touring with Combichrist, and honestly we have the social media to blame. It's truly sad, and quite pathetic that people are willing to stoop as low as to spread some sick, twisted rumors about me, and it's even more sad that people feed into it. I have NEVER been convicted of any crime that I have been accused of, but I feel as though I have been shackled by defamation. We have ALWAYS treated our fans as they were family, and we give the the upmost respect, as we hold our family in the highest regard. Anyone that knows us, or has been around us for any amount of time would know that we are nothing but gentlemen when it comes to females, and we would never allow harm to come their way. Sadly, these atrocious lies that are being spread about me have become a raging wildfire, and it's gotten out of control, and sadly it has crippled some relationships. To conclude, we would like to thank our FAMILY for all of the support and loyalty you have shown us, despite the slander that has been attached to our name. We love you with all of our hearts, and we truly apologise for the inconvenience. We will make it up to you in 2015 by having out very own headlining tour upon the completion of our upcoming record. Again, we apologise if we let anyone down; we didn't realize how out of control the ignorance would be."
While Combichrist' message seems to imply that Dahvie Vanity is indeed a pedophile, fact is that Dahvie Vanity never has been convicted of anything. False rumours spread by disgruntled groupies? Maybe, maybe not. (...)

Electric Six' 10th studio album "Human Zoo" is a fact. "Human Zoo" is released on CD and as a limited edition orange vinyl.
For the newcomers, Electric Six is a six-piece band from Detroit, Michigan. Their style has been described as a rock infusion with elements of punk rock, new wave and metal. The band formed in 1996 and was initially known as The Wildbunch, eventually dropping that name due to pressure from the Bristol trip hop collective of the same name. The band was originally composed of Dick Valentine (Tyler Spencer, vocals), Rock and Roll Indian (Anthony Selph, guitar), Surge Joebot (Joe Frezza, guitar), Disco (Steve Nawara, bass, former member of The Detroit Cobras), and M (Cory Martin, drums). Dick Valentine is and has always been the primary songwriter (both music and lyrics) of Electric Six. (...)
