Dopo le accuse di molestie, pedofilia e adescamento di minori via internet ricevute dal bassista David Ellefson e la smentita sia sua che della ragazza indicata come presunta vittima, la band ha diffuso il seguente comunicato:
"We are aware of the recent statements regarding David Ellefson, and are watching developments closely. As it relates to creativity and business, we are all familiar with one another. However, there are clearly aspects of David’s private life that he has kept to himself. As this situation unfolds, it is important that all voices be heard clearly and respectfully. We look forward to the truth coming to light."
