NIGHTS LIKE THESE haben sich nun offiziell von Drummer Patrick Leatherwood getrennt, der die Band bereits zu einem früheren Zeitpunkt verließ:
"He is still a very close friend to us but has other responsibilities and priorities that will keep him from being fully committed to the band and he would rather step down than continue. We are closing in on a permanent replacement, who we will announce soon." So die Band.
Weiterhin führt man folgendes zur aktuellen Situation an:
"We will not be stopping but more of slowing down. For the past few years we have enjoyed the full time touring lifestyle but it has come to the point where we will not be able to commit that much time to the road. As the summer winds down, a few of us will be in school pursuing careers in our respected fields as well as having jobs and other priorities that will obviously keep us at home. We plan to hit certain areas when we have time off, so don't worry, we will be back to your areas eventually.
As far as this summer, we will be writing new material and we will be playing regionally. So if you live in AR, MS, AL, KY, IN, MO, or TN and want us to come out and jam, let us know and we can try to work something out.
We will continue to put out records so keep coming back and checking our blog for more updates. We appreciate the emails and messages we continue to receive. It means a lot to us in our down time and hopefully you will continue to support us as we open a new chapter in Nights Like These."
