Much the Same Vocalist Parts Ways with Group

Posted by - 08:02 AM on 04/15/07
Much the Same vocalist Chris "Gunner" McGrath has parted ways with the group.
Press ReleaseAfter 8 years,Chris ( a.k.a Gunner) Mcgrath has decided to leave Much The Same. This decision is something that everyone agreed was the best for himself and the band. This however, by no means is the end of our band. We are still heading to Canada with our good friend, Rod (who will also be playing the Only Crime/No Trigger dates.) He also plays bass for the Chicago band Counterpunch, and we thank them for letting us borrow him. Soon after that we are looking forward to writing a new record that we feel will truly reflect who we are and where we are going. We don't plan on having any open tryouts just yet. We hope to see you all at the shows and we'll keep you posted.

Thanks everyone,

Frank, Dan, and Jevin

For a more detailed explanation as to why Chris quit go here.

Aww. That's too bad, but after reading his reasons, I can't really fault him. Congratulations and best of luck to Chris on his engagement, and regardless I'm still looking forward to new material from Much the Same. Their last record was a diamond in the rough, and I really enjoyed it.

That man is so wise. Congratulations to him. At least Much the Same will continue to bring the rock.

Congrats, Gunner, on the engagement. Good luck to you, buddy. You're a smart guy with a good head on your shoulders; I know you're making the right decision for you. And good luck to the rest of Much the Same. I'm sure they'll land on their feet. :^) - Much Love, Okie

Everyone knows that Gunner wrote the best songs, even though the other guys still rock and are cool dudes. I find it interesting that now he is out of the band everyone is calling him by his real name.

I wouldnt be too worried. The other members of the band write songs that pretty much sound like his. Stitches was written by Franky and from what I understand Jevin was the brains behind a lot of what is on Survive. I just hope they find a vocalist that doesnt butcher their old songs.
