Last week, an investigative piece was published on Pitchfork detailing sexual misconduct allegations made against Sun Kil Moon’s Mark Kozelek by three women. Now, Kozelek has issued a statement on his website denying all allegations and threatening legal action.
“It is important that I publicly and unconditionally deny that I engaged in the inappropriate and disturbing incidents falsely depicted in the media,” he writes. “While I support the important work of addressing legitimate claims of sexual misconduct, I reject the false allegations and innuendo in the recent press.”
“I have retained the legal counsel of Lavely & Singer to investigate and to pursue as necessary any claims against anyone participating to defame me in the media,” the statement concludes.
Yesterday (Auagust 17), it was announced that Kozelek’s upcoming European tour has been postponed in the wake of the accusations.
