Run For Cover Records, a label who has handled multiple efforts from the band, responded by severing all ties with them. “We as individuals and as a label are accepting of all people and require the same from the bands and people we work with,” they said via Twitter. “We will not be working with Whirr from this point on and do not support that behavior in anyway. We will post a full statement tomorrow.”
While Run For Cover have yet to share their further comments, Whirr have posted a statement of their own, which asserts that it was a “friend” of theirs who had posted the controversial tweets. You can read what member Nick Bassett had to say below.
