Band StatementAfter much deliberation, conversation, we have come to an agreement, and we are announcing that we are parting ways with our drummer, Austin Thornton.

Due to differences in musical creativity and control, the forward progression of the band with our current line-up is not possible. The differences just ended up creating more frustration and negativity and we feel as though this change is necessary to move forward and is a positive thing for everyone involved.

This will not be slowing us down. We won't be dropping any of our shows or tour dates, and we'll be releasing a new single in June, just in time for Warped Tour in the summer!

This is a big step for all of us, but we are all looking forward to the future and taking the necessary steps to find the best fit person to join our family on drums.

We wish Austin nothing but the best in his future endeavors.

We love you all. And thank you for your continued support through all of this. Our fans mean the absolute world for us and we do this all for you.

-Kevin, Andrew, Hance, Brian, and Doriano.

It's probably good for him, I saw these guys at Soundwave recently and they asked the audience to sit and one guy wouldn't so the singer told the crowd to forcibly make him sit. Fighting ensued.

I wouldn't want to associate with that.

I can only think of one case where someones drumming got worse over time. Anyways, this should have happened 2 years ago so this band could properly progress with the original lineup. Wonder I'f he will go back to the of machines

Lol, how about I don't give a fuck how hard they think they are. Props to that guy who refused to sit. Band is now so laughable.
