Delaware Straight Edge band Year of the Knife have announced that UK vegan Straight Edge band X Servitude X has been dropped from the band's tour of Europe and the UK next month follow accusations of racism and homophobia against X Servitude X vocalist James Fisher. The tour had been set to run from May 17th through June 1st.

 From the band:

X Servitude X has begun facing a backlash after screenshots of vocalist James Fisher's conversations in the FK5 group chat were posted to a United Kingdom Hardcore (UKHC) Facebook group, and then circulated on Twitter. Further screenshots showed other members of the FK5 group chat using racially insensitive and homophobic slurs.

    Really curious if this will affect Venom Prison, since their vocalist Larissa (ex Wolf Down) is James Fisher‘s girlfriend.
