O Sigur Rós confirmou hoje, dia 1º, a saída do baterista Orri Páll Dýrason da banda, após acusações de estupro feitas online. Em uma publicação no Facebook, o grupo declarou: "Após alegações extremamente sérias e pessoais feitas contra ele nos últimos dias, nós hoje aceitamos a demissão de nosso colega de banda Orri Páll Dyrason para que ele possa lidar com isso de forma privada".

In January of 2013 I was sexually assaulted by a member of the band @sigurros when they were in Los Angeles recording an album that was set to come out later that same year. My assailant's name is Orri Páll Dýrason. I never reported it. I never expressed my pain publicly. I harbored this ache now for almost 6 years... for many reasons. I felt no one would believe me, I felt I had been irresponsible for trusting him just because he was in a band I loved and I respected him as an artist. I was drunk, and I had met him at a club (I had a brief period in which I was a dancer at a club called “the body shop”), I also engaged in a kiss with him before falling asleep in the same bed, after that I completely knocked out. I woke up with the feeling of being penetrated without my consent during a deep slumber.. it happened twice that night, and I wondered myself why I didn’t leave after the first time- but I was drunk, dead tired, in shock, and this was right before I ever heard of anything like Uber/lyft ... but none of that should matter because no one deserves to be raped/touched/licked/fucked without CONSENT. (((My heart is racing and I’m shaking just typing this.))) I wasn't ready to go public in the midst of the hype of the #metoo movement because just speaking about it gives me intense anxiety and I was about to give birth to my first child. In the wake of the news of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford calling out Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, I was triggered to speak out myself. Ironically, he’s now engaged to feminist activist who is also the founder of the Icelandic Slut walk (go figure...) And if I hear another damn Sigur Ros song during a yoga class ever again I’m gonna scream. Those songs I once found deliciously calming, beautiful and serene now leave a disgusting taste in my mouth. #endrapeculture

Dýrason recebeu acusações da artista Meagan Boyd, que publicou um longo texto em seu Instagram na semana passada. Na declaração, Boyd detalha ter sido estuprada enquanto dormia, em 2013. Segundo o seu relato, ela adormeceu bêbada ao lado do músico e acordou sentindo ter sido penetrada sem consentimento. Ela ainda disse não ter acusado o músico antes por ter medo de ser desacreditada. 

Em seu próprio post, Dýrason disse estar se afastando do Sigur Rós para tratar do caso fora de olhos públicos: "Farei tudo em meu poder para sair deste pesadelo, mas por respeito aos que realmente estão sofrendo de violência sexual, não tornarei esta briga pública".
