Brandon and Tanner both said one of the members was leaving to go back to school and start a family, and I believe it was Brandon that specifically namedropped Jason...

Looks that way.
Class act.

At least all of these bands continue to suck ass.

I never liked Craig Owens on any Chiodos records but dig the DRUGS album. Guess I am in a minority there..

How does it look that way at all?

I'm so confused why people are jumping to conclusions all over the place.

To what degree does it look that way?

"After much thought and consideration" absolutely means they've known about it longer than the past 24 hours.

If they just found out Craig was going back to Chiodos they would most likely have a little more resentment toward him and would not have written an update of the situation so light-heartedly. I think I could also venture to say that they would have had to have given a blind eye to their entire fan-base for the past several weeks.

I think it's safe to say these guys weren't out of the loop when the announcement was made. Craig said in his last interview "This is not the end of D.R.U.G.S." That said, I'm sure over the past month the guys in the band compared pros and cons and decided they would be better off not waiting around to push D.R.U.G.S. during Craigs Free time. This gives them the ability work on their own projects or their own reunions and prevents them from being tied down to a band that will clearly be on the back-burner at least for a while.

Haha I was typing my reply when you beat me to that response.

There's so much hateful speculation going on...

People need to be excited, not pissed off!

Agreed, always thought Chiodos was garbage but that Drugs record had it's moments..whatever.

bobsheiskawy 04/27/12 04:58 PM

craig's response:

I wish Nick, Aaron & Matt the best of luck in moving forward, in whatever it is that they decide to do. They are all very talented individuals and I have no doubt that they will succeed no matter what it is they choose to do next. They stood next to me during one of the most difficult times in my life and I will never be able to thank them enough for what it is that they did for me. I wish them the best of luck and I hope, most of all, that they continue to make music. They're extremely talented and professional musicians and music fans should be treated to their talents for many years to come.

As for the future of DRUGS... I obviously have a few things to figure out as this was a completely unexpected turn of events. I will let you, the fans, know what the future holds for Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows soon.

Most of all, I will never be able to thank each and everyone of YOU! For standing behind me when I get knocked down, for sticking with me during one of the hardest moments in my life, for always being there by my side while I figure out my personal problems, and most importantly for always being there for me, no matter what the circumstance. I owe all of you more then I'll ever be able to give back in the form of music, or a blog... but I can promise you one thing, and that is... I WILL NEVER STOP being there for you, as you have always been there for me, that I can promise you..

he didn't know they were leaving.

The irony is that this thread is full of people bashing Craig and blaming him for D.R.U.G.S. the other guys leaving. It sounds like he was more caught off-guard than anyone.

Matchbook reunion please!

ARo2431 04/27/12 05:11 PM

I don't know where all these no Jason Hale rumors are coming from but they better be false. The bands not the same without him. That would kill most of the excitement I have for this reunion if he's out.

mitchellam 04/27/12 08:52 PM

I'd leave too if I knew Craig was coming back in a band I was in.

johnnyferris 04/27/12 09:26 PM

It was bound to happen. I would love to see Matt get FFTL back together so they can properly tour for Throne to the Wolves. Hopefully Chiodos gets some new music out soon.

MementoMori351 04/27/12 09:39 PM

Dear Sheluligans and .dot,

You were arguing with me about this in a past post, and I just wanted to tell you...I told you so! I know what I'm talking about.

I barely remember that argument. I'm pretty sure you didn't call everyone leaving the band because Craig rejoined Chiodos.

senSedative12 04/27/12 11:02 PM

fuck man

MikeyJam 04/28/12 12:05 AM

apparently matt's writing up his own statement explaining why they left drugs, so look out for that
