In addition to the band’s statement, Tighe has posted as a statement of his own.
You can read Tighe’s official statement below:
“Hi to all of the amazing fans, loyal friends and incredible people who support and inspire me every day. I love you so much.
From the age of eleven I have had only one dream and goal; to be a brilliant drummer, the very best I can be in a world-renowned band, just like my heroes. I have put my heart, energy, passion, fun and soul into that dedicated goal from day one and throughout my time performing with originally Small Town Heroes and the Faim. I am so proud of what I and the guys in the band have achieved.
Thank you and deepest respect for John Feldmann for taking this bunch of young guys from the remotest city in the world to LA and giving us a dream shot. I will never forget the joy and excitement of that LA adventure.
I’m also proud that I have put every ounce of energy into every show and never missed one show, even playing with a fractured wrist in Europe, the most challenging thing I’ve done.
As discussed with the band members and manager, we are parting company/ ways. Our relationship, unfortunately, hasn’t worked out. I wish the guys every success in life and music.
I am now focusing on the future and will be putting my passion and energy into seeking opportunities to continue to fulfil my passion of drumming.
Thank you once again to all of the fans. I love you guys and will be doubling down even harder to perform for you in the future. Playing for you all with passion was the light that stayed lit within me.
