Following news that Relient K would be touring without three of their members, drummer Ethan Luck, who joined the band in 2008, has resigned from the group. You can read his exit statement below.

“To all the great fans of Relient K

It saddens me, more than you know, to tell you that I have left Relient K. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the last 5 years. You all made me feel like I was in the band longer than I was. Thank you all for taking the time and spending the money to come to the shows, allowing me to have a job in music. Thank you for spending time with me after shows, having good conversation or just saying hello. I am beyond grateful. I love being on tour so much and I can’t wait to play for you all again. I’m currently out with Cold War Kids, guitar teching. Come on out to a show and say hello! Trust me when I say, I wish this would have turned out differently. I tried my very best to not have things get to this point.

God Bless You All.

Ethan Luck”
