Evan is my big brother. He's taught me so much since I've spent everyday for the last 3 years with him. I will always support him in whatever he does creatively and I am excited to continue to work with him on other projects! I'm sending all my positive vibes his way through this whole thing. Love you dude! – Kevin
This has been a hard thing to deal with. Having created this band with, Evan, since the get go, it is hard to think of a future without him continuing right beside us. But this decision is the best and healthiest for him and the band. We both support each other 110% in this moving forward and Evan will always be a part of the Ghost Town family. That will never change! – Alix
