Beach Slang Part Ways With Guitarist Over Sexual Assault Allegations

Beach Slang

(TeamRock) Beach Slang have parted ways with guitarist Ruben Gallego amid sexual assault allegations. Claims have been made against Gallego relating to an incident which occurred four years ago - before he was in the band. The Philadelphia outfit say they cannot "in good conscience" continue working with him.

Beach Slang say: "Beach Slang has always been and will always be a safe place for everyone. It was built to be welcoming. It was built to be soft. If we are going to continue to exist, we have to exist in this way.

"There have been allegations involving sexual assault and our guitarist, Ruben. Although this occurred four years ago and prior to him joining Beach Slang, we cannot in good conscience continue with him.

"We believe survivors and we want to believe Ruben, but until we learn more information, we don't feel it's appropriate for him to be a part of Beach Slang."

Gallego has issued his own statement and, though he claims the allegations are "innacurate," he understands his bandmates' decision. Read more here.
