Amongst the allegations includes an alleged Facebook conversation Cutbush had with a 16-year-old female, in which he suggested they "hook up in Sydney some time".

Life Is Noise Director Jack Midalia confirmed the company and Cutbush have parted ways in a statement posted to Facebook this morning. 

"I take these reports seriously, and deeply apologise for not providing the safe space that the women in our industry deserve," the statement reads.

"Dave will no longer have any involvement or association with Life is Noise, effective immediately."

Some of Life Is Noise's upcoming Australian tours include Sleep, Wolves In The Throne Room and Chelsea Wolfe. 

Meanwhile Brisbane outfit Siberian Hell Sounds have announced they will be donating their $200 payment from a Life Is Noise show last year to a women's shelter. 


Revered Brisbane live music venue Crowbar has announced its "disassociation" from Cutbush. 

"It is against our personal, business and moral beliefs for any woman to be mistreated or taken advantage of in any way at all, especially in this great scene we are so lucky to be a part of," a statement posted on the venue's Facebook page today reads. 

"This needs to be a safe and respectful place for all of us and, as always, we will endeavour to ensure Crowbar, its bands, staff and promoters provide a space that is welcoming, comfortable and safe for all."

Wolves In The Throne Room and Chelsea Wolfe are currently both slated to play Crowbar when they hit the country in April and March respectively. 

The Music has contacted the bands for comment. 

More details to come.
