US indie rock outfit The Dangerous Summer have parted ways with their drummer Tyler Minsberg.
In a statement released by Minsberg he states the reason for his departure as well as possible future musical ventures:
”I feel it is absolutely my responsibility to both quiet any rumors and answer any questions regarding my participation with The Dangerous Summer. As of roughly over a month and half ago, I made the decision to sever myself from that band for personal reasons.
I’d like to thank from the bottom of my heart my fans, my family, my label, any industry personnel , and without any question the band that allowed me to live a dream that I had since I was a child. You all gave me an opportunity that I will never forget and that I can proudly say, I never took for granted. I learned about myself as a person, and as a professional musician through four great years of writing, recording, and performing live, a style of music that I felt perfectly fit the message that I wanted to help express.
The most important thing I hope is that none of you take this personally. You all did exactly what I wished from you and that was unconditional support. Please do not stop supporting this band, but do not think that I am finished with music. I have all different kinds of plans regarding my involvement in the music industry, and I hope that if I present you the audience with anything new, I can count on the incredible strength you gave me once again. I love you all. Thank you.”
