Oklahoma City punk act Red City Radio announced last week the departure of founding guitarist and co-vocalist Paul Pendley, who parted ways with the band amicably.

Now, the band have announced that Pendley’s replacement will be Ryan Donovan, who plays bass for the punk band Nothington. You can read a statement from vocalist/guitarist Garret Dale below.

"Hello Friends!
