ABSOLUTExclusive: Tym Leaves Daytrader We were just notified by Tym from that he will not be finishing the dates on Daytrader's current tour and that he will be leaving the band. It is unclear at this point what the future of Daytrader will be. Check out Tym's statement below. Daytrader
Update: Daytrader has cancelled their current dates, but will continue with a new singer - tour dates to be announced soon.
Message from TymSo it goes. Another band succumbs to the ups & downs of rock n roll. Personal and creative differences have come to a head and have made it so I cannot finish the current tour Daytrader is on. I have no malice towards anyone in the band and I wish Gary, Matt, Derrick, and Robert the best. I think they are going to make music together in the future and I'm sure whatever they do will be great.
thanks to everyone who let us sleep on their floor, helped us make our records, sang along to my stories, and to anyone who cared about this little rock band. It meant the world to me
...but I'm sure I'll see you again

Really disappointing. Seen them a few times and he's got one of the most unique voices I've heard in a while, will be tough to replace him if they decide to continue

This is such a huge bummer. I really should have seen them last summer when I had a chance to. Twelve Years and the demo are both phenomenal records.

This is really upsetting. To see a band grow like they did in just 2 short years was awesome, never a bad song, always a good live show. Interested to see what will come from both parties.
