Greeley Estates bassist Josh Appleback is leaving the band.
StatementFor the past two and a half years I've lived out a dream of mine; traveling the country playing music with friends. It certainly hasn't always been easy, and it hasn't always been fun, but it has always been worth the work. I've had the oppurtunity to tour with bands that I admire and respect and some of the dudes in those bands have impacted my life in awesome ways. Two full Warped Tours, Taste of Chaos, and a dozen national tours with unforgettable memories to last a lifetime. Wait a second, did I actually tour with Billy Idol?!

I've loved contributing to a band that is truly special. My bandmates authentically...

Patent Pending has parted ways with their bassist, Drew. They have said it was on "good terms to protect the friendship of the remaining four members." Their friend, Claude, will be filling in until a permanent bassist has been found.

Although rumours have been circulating for quite some time, bassist Mark Iverson has officially parted ways with the Mad Caddies. However, the band, who are currently hard at work on their full-length, follow-up effort to 2003's Just One More, have made it clear that Marks' depature will in no way hinder their progress.

Nodes of Ranvier bassist Terry Taylor has stepped down from his position with the band. Here's his official statement:
Message"Being in Nodes over the last couple years has been one of the most important things I have ever done with my life.

I feel very blessed that I was able to share the stage with all the fans and the 4 other members of Nodes. Touring had became harder and harder for me each tour.

Welcome Back Kevin"Hey everyone. We are very excited to announce that Kevin Mahoney, our
original bassist, has rejoined the band. Brad has decided to leave the
band to persue other personal goals. The band and Brad are still on good
terms and we wish him nothing but the best of luck with everything.
