Motograter have issued a statement denying the recent report that five members of the group had left the band. Yesterday, this report emerged via Numetal.net, which alleged that the band were down to guitarist/vocalist Matt “Nuke” Nunes, having shared a screen cap of a text conversation with guitarist Jesse Stamper that mentioned a mass exodus of band members. Motograter have since denied those reports, issuing the below statement:
“Everything is fine, we just completed our headline tour. Something small got blown out of proportion in the media due to a disgruntled ex-member falsely reporting that we broke up and spreading the news to other websites. That couldn’t be further from the truth. We are the strongest we’ve ever been! We have festivals coming up and then the Terror Universal co-headlining tour coming up after that. We are ready to rock!”
It is unsure if the ‘disgruntled ex-member’ refers to Stamper or the Motograter’s former drummer Noah “Shark” Robertson, who has ties to numetal.net. Robertson feuded with Nunes via social media making allegations of drug abuse and violent behavior after being let go.
