A British metal band brilliantly called out an audience member they witnessed groping a woman at their show

“If you feel like doing that again… Walk out there and f**k off, and don’t come back.”

IN THE MIDST of their European tour, UK metalcore four-piece Architects spotted highly inappropriate behaviour during a festival show.

In punk and hardcore scenes around the world, women are subject to all kinds of shitty behaviour from men, while simply trying to enjoy a concert.

A lot of the time a blind eye is turned to it by bands and other audience members, however more and more artists have begun to call out this behaviour.

Architects has joined the ranks of bands who won’t tolerate sexual harassment and assault at concerts. Vocalist Sam Carter could not keep his mouth shut after he saw a man grope a woman who was crowd surfing.

Between songs, he called the audience member out.

So. I’ve been going over in my f**king mind about whether I should say something about what I saw during that last song.
And do you know what? I’m gonna f**king say it.
I saw a girl — a woman, crowdsurfing over here and I’m not going to point the f**king piece of shit out that did it, but I saw you f**king grab at her boob.I saw it. It is f**king disgusting and there is no f**king place for that shit.

The crowd erupted into applause.

Carter then went on to say:

It is not your f**king body. It is not your f**king body and you do not f**king grab at someone. Not at my f**king show!So if you feel like doing that again… Walk out there and f**k off and don’t come back.Let’s keep this going! Let’s keep this a f**king safe place for everybody! And let’s have a f**king good time!

Fans, particularly female ones, were greatly appreciative of Sam’s refusal to tolerate sexual harassment.
