I always thought motion city was one of those bands that would breakup if anyone left. But I'm glad they are continuing, hopefully they can find a permanent replacement who will stick around. Really hope they don't turn into one of those bands with members coming and going all the time.

That's very upsetting. He's my favorite drummer. Good luck to him and the rest of the band in the future.

Man, complete shocker. I completely understand the decision though. He's definitely one of the nicest, most genuine people I've ever met in my various concert experiences, and I wish nothing but the best to him in the future.

I really dont see this happening at all... Justin, Josh, Jesse and Matt seem to be in it for the long haul...

but I mean the fact that all the members live all over the country must make it a little hard ...

I always feared this could happen simply because Tony is one of the few drummers that I feel actually has a defining "voice" in the overall band. His drumming is practically a melody at times and completely stands out to me. Songs like Broken Heart, Can't Finish What You Started, and the list goes on...they all have his signature and I don't think the songs would be nearly as strong without his work. There are very few current pop/punk bands that have a drummer that I appreciate more than Tony.

This is a huge blow to me. I'll always be a MCS fan, but I'm already beginning to prepare for this loss.

Oh no.... I did not see this coming. I saw these guys sticking together as whole as they have since I became a fan in 2004(with 'My Favorite Accident' in Burnout 3: Takedown on PS2). Tony is a cool dude and hate to see him go and the lineup change...... but I understand. Best wishes to him and the band.

So glad to hear they are writing new stuff. Been my fav band for years.

EDIT: Two Fallout themed avatars in a row. YES!

Well fuck. That's really disappointing, I'd always held MCS' lineup up as a model of consistency.

It is amazing though that they managed to keep it together for 11 years... considering only two of them live in Minneapolis still...

Tony is an extremely awesome guy and I hope he ends up doing more awesome things. That being said, it'll be hard to truly replace such a creative drummer.

Did not see this one coming at all. Tony is so nasty. Hopefully he keeps playing in some form.

Whoever permanently replaces Tony could easily play his stuff, but CREATING it as well as Tony will be a huge task, in my opinion. I'm so bummed about this.
