Love Equals Death Bassist Parts Ways with Group

Posted by: Brandon Allin (04/08/07)
Love Equals Death bassist Dominic Davi has reportedly parted ways with the Fat Wreck Chords act.
Press ReleaseI would first like to wish everyone a Happy Easter. I would also like to update everyone on the happenings of LED. Some of you may or may not know that Love Equals Death was dealt quite a blow about three weeks ago when we had found out that our bass player was facing serious charges. Well, we would like to make it perfectly clear here at camp LED that we do not in any way condone any such behavior related to these charges. We, however are not a judge or a jury and don't want to be one any time soon. We are however a band that really just wants to continue playing music. We know that these times have been severley trying for Dominic(bass player in question) and the accuser. We hope for the best outcome for all parties. However, Dominic will no longer be playing music or working on behalf of Love Equals Death. This matter that he faces requires all of his attention right now and we (Tonio, Duffs and myself) wish him well as I know all of you do. I personally know that his love for music will always keep him in the scene and i'm sure those who support him will be seing him around very soon. This is an official statement from me to all of you. We will announce a new bass player in the next few weeks and we'll see you at the next show.

This is the guy who started Love Equals Death, I believe. He also started Tsunami Bomb way before that.. he's very critical in both bands' songwriting, I wonder what happens next.

Standing by your boy and having him play in a band with you are two completely different situations. If I was going to trial with accusations of raping someone, you can bet that making sure my bass playing is decent would be pretty far down on my importance scale. He's simply not going to be able to represent the band the way he should be, and for that I can't blame the band at all. They're not throwing him out to the wolves, they're simply making the best decision they can.

Yeah, seems like the best decision. Plus if he did actually do what he's accused of, it'd be damn near impossible to work with him.

He has been trying to get with girls all over the country. Even when his girlfriend at home was watching the house. I'm just a bitter ex of a girl he stole in Utah.

Dominic is a joke.
