Punk duo PWR BTTM's music is going to be taken down from a lot of streaming services aswell as digital music providers.  iTunes, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, and Amazon will all no longer be streaming or offering PWR BTTM's music. 

This is a result of the duo being kicked from their label Polyvinyl over sexual assault accusations against Ben Hopkins. PWR BTTM's previous record label Father/Daughter Records has also taken down the duo's music from the platforms listed above. 

In addition, Polyvinyl has also made a statement sharing why they've removed PWR BTTM from their roster.
Throughout our 20 years, Polyvinyl has purposefully operated on the core principle that everyone deserves to be treated with fairness and respect. There is absolutely no place in the world for hate, violence, abuse, discrimination or predatory behavior of any kind.
In keeping with this philosophy, we want to let everyone know that we are ceasing to sell and distribute PWR BTTM's music. If you have ordered PWR BTTM products from Polyvinyl and would like to receive a full refund for your purchase, please contact mailorder@polyvinylrecords.com. We ask for your patience as we work to quickly process all requests.

We will be making donations to the following incredibly important organizations: RAINN (rainn.org) to support its efforts against sexual violence, and AVP (avp.org) to aid its programs against LGBTQ violence.

Our hearts go out to all victims of discrimination and all survivors of sexual violence.
Late last week, also PWR BTTM's management agency Salty Artist Management dropped the band. They aswell made a statement to explain their decision.
​Read it below.
"In light of the allegations involving members of PWR BTTM, Salty Artist Management will no longer be working with the band. We do not take these kind of allegations lightly and our thoughts are with victims and survivors of abuse who have been affected by this.
If you need someone to talk to, these organizations can provide information and support:
National Sexual Assault Hotline - (800) 656-4673
The Trevor Project - (866) 488-7386
LGBT National Help Center - (888) 843-4564
National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs - (212) 714-1141"
Billboard reported earlier this week that PWR BTTM have also cancelled their current tour, due to the fallout in regard to these allegations. The band made a statement on the 11th of May. This statement can be read below.
