Earlier this evening, Miss Fortune revealed through their official Facebook page that frontman Mikey Sawyer had been arrested on charges of domestic assault, therefore forcing the band to drop off the impending Get Real Tour, which is where they would've shared the stage with the Word Alive the Color Morale, Our Last Night and the Dead Rabbitts.
Not long after releasing their statement, Ash Avildsen, CEO of Sumerian Records, took to the label's Facebook page to disclose that the band are no longer on the label, saying, “We do not condone domestic violence, nor would we ever support an artist that does.”
Following this, the band posted yet another comment on Facebook, which confirmed Sawyer's arrest.
You can read all of what's been said below. Be sure to let us know what you think.
Miss Fortune released their debut full-length album, A Spark To Believe, earlier this year through Sumerian.
Dear fans and friends alike, we are sad and sorry to announce that we will no longer be performing on the Get Real Tour with The Word Alive and others. Sometimes things are just out of our control. We love you all and hope we can see you again. We still encourage you to go out and see The Word Alive and the other bands on the tour.
Sumerian Records has dropped Miss Fortune. We do not condone domestic violence, nor would we ever support an artist that does.
We'd like to point out that the actions of one band member do not represent the actions and viewpoints of the entire band. Yes our singer Mikey is in jail, but no we DO NOT condone his actions. We DO NOT condone domestic abuse. If you've met anyone of us in person I'm sure you know we're a cool bunch of dudes. Saying Miss Fortune condones domestic abuse is a lie, so stop saying it. Thank you.
