Fred Mascherino (The Color Fred) clarifies some things about his recent departure from Taking Back Sunday in an interview here.
Excerpt"The idea that I left Taking Back Sunday strictly to do The Color Fred is incorrect," Mascherino clarified. "I had been planning to release this record at this time. It was already set up. I was going to release it and do a tour, which I'm on now, and then go back and write the next record with them and record it. But along the line of a few months before and then on the Projekt Revolution tour, things were getting sour. I said, 'I don't want to do this anymore.' It was making me miserable. I felt like I was changing who I was."

Update: Fred recently spoke to James Montgomery of MTV about leaving Taking Back Sunday. Read what Fred had to say here.

Fred Mascherino (The Color Fred) has left Taking Back Sunday. A bulletin from Taking Back Sunday about the topic can be found below.
BulletinAfter four great years and two successful gold albums together, Fred has decided to leave Taking Back Sunday to pursue his solo career. We wish him well and we are working on the next Taking Back Sunday album as we speak.

We wanted to let you guys know and then get back to working on the music. No drama, just riffs.

On that note, Fred's album The Color Fred's BEND TO BREAK is coming out on October 30.
