Another member of Attila is being accused of rape. After frontman Chris Fronzak was accused of grooming an underaged girl earlier this month, drummer Bryan McClure has been accused by his ex-girlfriend of years of drunken verbal abuse, and anally raping his girlfriend at the time, while on speed, in the back of the Attila tour bus.
Eileen Anderson has posted a statement on her social media, detailing the relationship she had with McClure from early 2017 to early 2018. She accuses McClure of being an alcoholic and turning abusive while doing so, not remembering any of it the next morning.
She claims that she got pregnant early on in the relationship with his child, and Bryan said that members of Attila told him that if he were ever to get a girl pregnant, he would be kicked out. She had the abortion while he was on the road on Warped Tour.
She eventually joined him on the tour, and said the two would abuse drugs on the road. She claimed one night they accidentally did speed, thinking it was cocaine and the night ended in her being anally raped while she was passed out, leading to bleeding the next morning. Here is that passage of the story she released:
One night we thought we were doing coke with a couple of other guys and it ended up being speed which no one wanted. It was time for the buses to leave and we are drinking and having fun on the bus and out of nowhere Bryan gets blackout again and starts saying "you don't fucking like me, you only want me because of the band I'm in". Looking at one of the techs and other band members and just going off on his usual degrading tangents. I remember someone telling him "no dude, she loves you and that's not how it is". It was an extremely awkward situation for everyone involved and he wouldn't stop.
We started fighting and he got up to yell at me in my face and the bus swerved and he accidentally fell into me hard which caused me to start gushing blood everywhere out of my nose. His guitar tech and guitarist were the ones who took care of me immediately while he didn't even notice right away because he was all worked up and angry. While blood is getting cleaned up off me and I'm crying the lights turned back on mentally for him and started getting emotional and trying to care for me saying "I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry, I'm sorry!" Trying to hug me and I'm extremely angry at him for his usual drunk actions.
I go into the back lounge to get away from him and he soon follows after. He tries to hug me and I go "don't you fucking touch me" "get the fuck away from me". Then we start fighting again and I was just so emotionally done that I laid on the couch in the fetal position crying until I completely passed out.
I woke up some time later and my pants were somewhat pulled down thinking it was weird and got into the bunk where he was asleep still angry at him but didn't want the band to see what was going on. I woke up the next day to use the restroom and wondered why it stung to pee and hurt really bad to sit down. I wiped myself and saw blood. Then I started wiping more and realized I wasn't just vaginally bleeding. I don't like anything anally done to me and it just internally clicks why my pants were pulled down earlier and I start crying.
I come back and everyone on the bus is laughing because they have photos of a blacked out Bryan completely naked walking around the bus coming from the back room that night. I'm so isolated and sad feeling and don't know what to do because I just found out I was raped by my boyfriend. Bryan also made a lot of points to tell me his band mates didn't like me so I already felt like an unwanted guest in their "home".
Eileen admitted she was addicted to being in an abusive relationship. She would eventually break it off with Bryan, but not after suffering more abuse. She claimed that she tried to get Bryan sober, and agreed to get back with him on the condition of sobriety and if he admitted to his band members what he did to her that night.
She provided screenshots of an exchange with Bryan shortly after this, where he seemingly admitted to raping her on speed:
After going live with her story, Eileen claims "other women and underage girls" have sent her messages about McClure cheating on Eileen with them. She tweeted "I love how I was so stupidly faithful but was accused of cheating and now I continuously am being sent links of other women and underage girls that he basically cheated on me our entire relationship. Like what the fuck did I do to deserve that? Oh yeah, nothing. You did nothing."
Anderson's entire statement can be seen below.
Update: Attila have quickly distanced themselves from drummer Bryan McClure following allegations of sexual assault and abuse from his former girlfriend, Eileen Anderson. The band wrote on social media:
"Over the last 4 years, Attila has been a three-piece band. We were absolutely digusted to learn of some recent events surrounding a touring member of the band, and earlier this week we parted ways with that member. We do not condone his actions, and we stand with the victims. We are deeply sorry to those affected and want nothing more than love and healing for them."

It feels like I internally just released an entire universe of burden out of my being. I haven’t been able to stop crying because I just realized I’m finally free and it’s like everything around me feels it too.
