Echosmith announced that guitarist Jamie Sierota has left the band.
The group announced that Jamie has decided to focus on his family and newborn for the time being. The band posted this heartfelt message on their Facebook page:
“It’s been so incredible to see our brother Jamie shine in his new role as DAD! He is such a dedicated father and husband. In fact, after taking a lot of time to think about what is best for his family, he has decided that he’s not going to be in the band any longer.”
“We know this was a very hard decision for him, and we are so supportive of his choice. We love him and will miss him so much! We are still as passionate as ever to continue making music and sharing our new album with you soon. Thank you for your continual patience and support. We love you all and will see you soon!”
Jamie also posted this message on his Instagram:
As if AFI haven't given us enough excitement, frontman Davey Havok, along with No Doubt guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal and drummer Adrian Young, have announced the name for their supergroup: Dreamcar.
The group's announcement came earlier this year, and Billboard reported back in February that their record is finished and they were looking for a record label deal. Billboard shared the group's total sales histories—No Doubt selling 16.3 million albums in the United States since 1992 and AFI 4.1 million since 1995—an incredible number of albums combined.
Stay tuned for more updates—and what appears to be new music in 2017.
