I don't like DRUGS, but with Story of the Year being so quiet, that was probably the most active band he could have found himself in. Hopefully the opportunity he left for is big or really interesting. DRUGs is kind of on the way up right now, and it's weird that he'd leave considering the inactivity of his other band.
I know that ;). Just used the wrong wording for it, I meant I hope he actively starts playing and recording with those guys again. I reckon he didn't play with them besides the Australian Soundwave (counter)Revolution festival.
