Baroness drummer Allen Blickle and bassist Matt Maggioni have parted ways with the band.
Nothing can truly prepare you for a brush with death. The event is unique one, singular to the observer. Trust me, you donít want to invite the experience. Our bus accident left indelible marks, external and internal, physical and mental, you name it. Each of the nine of us went through and continues to go through an entirely different, yet common experience. We are tied to each other by a trauma, which, despite its damage, has been made individually easier through our shared ordeal. While I would never wish the incident on anyone, I cannot imagine going through that wreck alone.

Please know that the band and I are on good terms, best of friends and I love them all very much. No matter...

This will be the first and last thing I am going to say about everything that's going on right now regarding Heroes For Hire. To everyone saying that there are no original members left in Heroes For Hire and that we are just using the band name to promote a completely new band: I can't even remember how many years ago it was exactly that I joined Heroes For Hire, but if I had to guess, I'd say it was about 5 or 6 years ago. Before I officially joined, I was filling in on bass guitar at a few small local shows due to their...
Ben Gibbard was one of many musicians to audition for The Postal Service - watch some of the other musicians who tried out - like Tom DeLonge. And Nate Mendel. And a bunch others that I don't want to give away.
