Acceptance Bassist Decides To LeaveGood News For People Who Like Bad News
Greetings dear and beloved friends. The sun has set many times since our last correspondence and the rising of that sun has brought with it some changes for the boys of Acceptance. Most importantly, I think you should all know that a familiar face will no longer be seen amongst our ranks. Our friend and bass player of four years has decided to leave the band to explore other adventures. Ryan explains below, but I will say that we love him and will miss him dearly. The past few years have been very special for all and as we move forward we will always cherish the days with Ryan and all of the unique things he has brought to the fold. He will always be a close member of the Acceptance family (so don't mess with him!) and don't be surprised to see him popping up on stage with us from time to time. In the meantime, keyboard Kyle will be filling in on bass. So we will see you soon but here's Ryan:
From time to time in march of life we find ourselves in debt to something bigger than our willingness to stay comfortable. Our minds will sneak up on us and catch us when we least expect, asking if we truly understand what it means to "know thyself". I feel we all have a greater purpose to fulfill and it seems in vain effort to continue a path that does not truly belong to you. I need to find the place that defines who I am. This decision did not come easily and has been a saddening one to make, but out of it I expect to find what I'm looking for. As for the 5 other people I have spent the better part of the past 4 years with, I wish only the best. In everything they pursue and achieve I hope they get to the place they want to be. I would like to thank everyone who has supported the band while I was a part of it and thank you again for continuing your support of Acceptance.
"To exist is an art."
- Ryan

you have no way of knowing if that's why. it's probably something personal.
