The tale of the Terror Universal / Otep saga has come to a conclusion.
A few weeks ago, Otep made a claim that vocalist Chad Armstrong of Terror Universal just came up to her and grabbed her crotch during an autograph signing and because of that she was dropping off an upcoming tour with Terror Universal as openers. The tour then dropped Terror Universal but Otep was not back on the bill.
Two weeks after the claims were made, Armstrong finally released a statement denying any wrongdoing.
Well, it seems all the controversy has caught up with the band as they decided it'd be best if they just part ways with the embattled singer. They announced today:
"Friends and fans, thank you for always supporting TU. We want to inform you that, due to personal differences, and the course of events these past couple of weeks, 'Chad Armstrong' is no longer the lead singer for Terror Universal.
"We will debut Terror Universal's new singer this weekend at the Texas Independence Fest. Next week we will post live video, so you can all hear and see our new kickass singer. We promise, our new frontman is everything you would expect from TU!!
"We wish Chad good luck, and thank all Terror Universal friends and fans for all your support."
There is no mention of the reason why Chad is out of the band other than "personal differences" and the course of events, but it doesn't take a blind person to figure out what is going on here. Do you think Terror Universal acted appropriately?
