Bassist James Likeness hat COPELAND verlassen.
Hier die Statements von James und der Band:
"There really isn't an easy way to go about saying this, so I'm just going to jump into it. After 6 years, it appears that the time has come for me to leave Copeland. I want everyone to know that I have cherished my time in the band immensely, and the people who enjoyed the music were the biggest source of that enjoyment.
For now, I am focusing all of my time on the other major artistic love in my life: design. As many of you know I have a degree in graphic design and I am making that my new career. If you would like to keep up with where that will take me you can visit my website at http://www.tiredchildren.com.
Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to perform for you for so many years. I love you guys so much, and will miss you all dearly.
"We sincerely wish James the best, he's an extremely talented individual and will excel for sure in this new direction. Regarding COPELAND we are moving fwd with full confidence and are very excited about some amazing things coming up in the near future. We look forward to seeing all of your lovely faces on the Rentals tour, tickets are for sale now so please pick some up as this will be the last tour of the year for us. After this upcoming tour we will begin work on a very exciting project that we cant wait to tell you guys about.
Bryan, Aaron, and Jon"
