In a letter on the Pinegrove Facebook page, Hall writes of being accused of sexual coercion and apologizes for his behavior with women.
“The accusation comes from someone i was involved with for a short but intense period of time. I won’t say more about this person because i want to respect her privacy and I ask anyone reading this to do the same.”
Regarding his behavior with women, Hall writes “I should have more actively acknowledged my position of power as a public figure, and also as a man. i have always tried to approach all of my relationships under the premise of equality, but I see now more clearly that the inherent privilege of my gender and the accumulated privilege of being a recognized performer most certainly impacted this interaction.
In the letter, Hall apologized to the person he hurt and the people he disappointed — his Pinegrove bandmates, friends, family and fans — and said he had begun therapy.
Pinegrove was scheduled to play The Starland Ballroom in Sayreville in December, as well as Irving Plaza in NYC.
