The entire staff at London heavy record label Holy Roar have quit following allegations made against label owner Alex Fitzpatrick earlier this week.
Now-former label manager Justine Jones posted the news on Holy Roar’s social media today, stating that herself, assistant Sam Robinson and a man named Wil have resigned.
“We have spent the last 24 hours in horror of the allegations that have been made against Alex Fitzpatrick, the owner of Holy Roar,” Jones wrote.
“The extremely serious allegations are against everything that myself, Sam, Wil and our bands stand for.
“We, the labels (sic) employees, are resigning from working with Holy Roar effective immediately.
“We are sorry for the long silence, it was a lot for us to process with our bands and personally and we found out the same time as the public.
“Alex will be making his own statement in due course.
“Justine, Sam and Wil.”
The exodus comes after British band Rolo Tomassi announced yesterday they were leaving the label.
“In light of the allegations about Alex Fitzpatrick, we have ended our relationship with him and Holy Roar as a label, effective immediately,” they wrote on social media.
Holy Roar has been home to several other prominent bands including Svalbard, Gallows and Touché Amoré.
More to come.
