Sorority Noise's Cameron Boucher Posts Statement On Sexual Assault Allegations

Thursday, 03 January 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

Sorority Noise frontman Cameron Boucher has issued a statement in relation to last year's accusations of sexual assault. 

In April 2018 the band cancelled their remaining tour dates with the Wonder Years due to an allegation of rape levelled at Boucher. The accusation was initially posted to Facebook, and then deleted, by Nicole Schoenholz, the former guitarist of The World is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die. “CB is a fucking scumbag who raped a friend of mine,” she wrote. A user claiming to be the friend subsequently posted an account to Reddit.

Boucher issued a statement on Twitter on April 10. “I am aware of the Facebook post that Nicole Schoenholz made late last night that has made its way to Reddit and other social media,” he wrote. “I would like to firmly state that her accusations are false.”

On December 30 the guitarist and vocalist issued another statement via the band's social media accounts. Read it in full below:

"The other day I had a positive and constructive conversation with a person who, eight months ago, was pressured into making a statement about me online. This conversation was important to both of us, and I’m grateful we were able to speak on our experiences and what we could do positively going forward.

We felt this note, which has been approved both by myself and the other person involved, was a step in the right direction. Although we are each valid in our own experiences, we agree that anything that did occur between us was not purposeful or malicious. This person has made peace with a situation they would not have shared publicly under other circumstances.

I have been in intensive therapy for the past eight months and over that time I’ve been working towards growth, being mindful, and moving forward. I appreciate your reading of this note, be well.

- Cam"

Sorority Noise are currently on hiatus, having announced the break in March, prior to the allegations.
