MessageTaylor won't be with the band anymore. The tour life isn't for everyone. Tyson from Second To Last will be filling in for all tours.

The band is not breaking up I started this band 3 years and 15 ex members ago and I am not ready to throw in the towel. Thank you all for the support. You mean the world to me. Handguns Family.

Well that sucks. Just as they're starting to get more attention. I hate when vocalists leave bands. His voice wasn't too unique but it's still such an inconvience for the band. Good luck to them.

Edit: Just watched the video and I guess the reason for him leaving is he didn't enjoy tour life anymore? They should've been more clear but I guess it'd be awkward trying to tell all your fans why you're leaving so I can see why they're kinda joking around about it.

He will be missed. Jake's keeping the band alive reminds me of Eddie with TBS.

for a band that has lyrics a ton of lyrics about being "anywhere but home" this just doesn't make sense

They seemed to be benefiting from the resurgence of pop punk over the last year or so.

This is an extreme bummer. I'm proud to say that I spent over a month with Taylor and Handguns. Tour is a long road full of shitty food and fighting to survive, just to play music that you have bottled up in your heart. Good luck to Taylor in everything he does, because he is a talented kid who has the musical tastes of a person beyond his years. Good luck to Jake, Nate, and Adam while continuing on with such a fun band like Handguns. I talked to Jake every day on the tour we did with them, and he is totally right...sometimes you have to pour out your heart on a stage every night, just because that's all there is left to do.
Good luck dudes...

Gay. Taylor was such an awesome dude and I was really looking forward to their full-length. I honestly wouldn't even mind if he did the studio vocals and someone else toured haha.
