“After much deliberation and long conversations, we have decided to part ways with our singer John. All the memories and music we’ve created and shared over the years have been incredible and we will never forget them. We wouldn't have made it this far without John's involvement and for that we are eternally grateful. We love John and wish him only the best moving forward but unfortunately it has become evident that this is the best thing for everyone.

As a result, we're sorry to say that we will be unable to play at the Fireside Bowl this Sunday. We promise to make it up to you soon.

We can’t thank you guys enough for all the love and support you've showed our band. It means the world to us. And while this will be a strange transition period, we are confident that it will make us stronger in the long run.

We are writing lots of new songs right now. And while we do not have a new singer yet, we will be actively building a bright future with whoever it ends up being. Please stay tuned for news and updates in the coming weeks.”
