Nothing But Thieves has released a statement on allegations of sexual assault against the band.

“We want to start by saying we completely support victims of assault and respect their bravery in coming forward with their stories. The past week has been one of the most difficult of our careers. Being falsely accused of sexual assault in a public forum, having these false allegations made about you and people immediately believing them hurts.

“It hurts us as individuals, as a band, hurts our mums and dads, our girlfriends and friends, our business colleagues, our fans, and most of all, it hurts victims of abuse who are telling a true story.”
