Yellowcard should just call it quits now. You can't replace LP. You just can't.

You'd think they'd release a bit more of a statement than that. But regardless, this really sucks and makes me very sad.

yeah you can. you can't replace ryan key, the guy writes the majority of the music. as long as he is still writing as well as he has on their last few albums i would never ask them to call it quits.

i will say that LP is one of the best drummers in a pop punk band and definitely gave yellowcard an energy and level of musicianship that placed them above a lot of other bands in their scene. they'll need to find someone top notch to maintain that quality.

Weird statement. Although I must say that when I saw Yellowcard on tour a few times the last years, he never seemed to enjoy himself. Especially on the acoustic tour it seemed like a drag for him.

Really disappointed to hear this. LP has always been one of my favorite drummers in the scene and I was really excited to finally see him perform live this summer. Best of luck to him in whatever he pursues next.

Fuck. LP has always been one of my favourite drummers, and a big part of why I love Yellowcard as much as I do.

I think my heart may have stopped for a second or two when I saw this announcement on Facebook.
LP was such a fantastic drummer, he really was a defining force in the band. I hope they can find someone suitable to do his parts live, and to match that same musicianship in the studio.

If they can wait around long enough, they should pick up Nathan Young once his Anberlin duties are over... Losing LP is a blow though, no doubt about it.
