Accusation of rape

Previously, the US-American artist Meagan Boyd Dýrason on Instagram was faced with serious allegations: according to the 41-Year-old then raped as a dancer to work at the end of Boyd 2013. Boyd wrote on Instagram:

"I was drunk and had it in a Club made of [...], we had kissed, before we together in the same bed asleep, then I was completely knocked out. I woke up with the feeling to be during a deep sleep, without my consent penetrated. It is twice happened that night and I wonder why I have not already after the first Time went – but I was drunk, dead tired, shocked [...].

In a now-deleted Post Meagan Boyd also shows private mail traffic between him and Dýrason. In the meantime, it has switched its Instagram channel in the Private mode.

Private matter

Orri Páll Dýrason has released on Monday a lengthy Statement on his private Facebook page. According to this he doesn't want to unsubscribe, this private matter in Public, and I have decided for this reason to leave SIGUR RÓS. Frontman Jón Þór Birgisson and Bassist Georg Hólm confirmed the exit officially on Facebook.
