Tim Parts Ways With Transit

Posted by - 04:34 PM on 08/22/14
Tim has left Transit. Our podcast this week feels strangely or fortuitously timed.

Pretty bummed. I love Misser and there are great vibes on that first off & on EP, so I'll follow whatever Tim does. Still deflates me anticipation for the transit album a little bit though

No Tim, no Joe L? No more Transit for me.

This band just lost an extremely important part of their sound and one of the main reasons I, and I assume many others, liked them so much. It would be awesome if he recorded on the new album and it would be even better if they were abel to create an awesome record without him. I'm not gonna jump to conclusions - who knows, maybe they'll bounce back from YNE and write great tunes even without Tim.

Also, all the tweets from both sides over the past few weeks are making more sense.

That means no more original guitarists right?

Both sides? I know Tim's been tweeting some sad stuff recently but I haven't seen anything on the band's account.

Bummed. But I've been a big fan of everything he's done, so I'll definitely keep tabs on both parties.

Also curious about this. I never liked his vocals, or Misser, but there's no doubt he was an important member of this band.

I'm on my phone so quoting in a timely fashion is probably beyond me. They've been posting stuff like "writing songs in transit has and always will be a team effort." Things that I assume were maybe pointed at reasons why Tim is gone.

Torre is great guitar player, he's been just as much a part of the bands sound as Tim has been since L&F. Not to take away from what Tim did, but the whole band writes.
