The ever fractious Fall Of Troy have encountered more issues and thus have released the following statement about bassist Tim Ward's departure:
"What this message entails Andrew and I bring to you with very heavy hearts...
We have been in a band with Tim for almost 6 years now and we love him very much, but he is burnt out on touring right now. So he is going to drop off of this tour with us to go home and take some time off. No hard feelings from us.
Our friend Frank is going to be playing bass with us for the remainder of our tour with Coheed and Cambria and Clutch. He is an amazing musician, person, and someone that has been close to us as a friend, and around the band the entire time we've been playing. We welcome him with open arms to have some fun and cause some ruckus, we hope you will too.
And last but not least, this is NOT the end of this band, in ANY, way, shape or form! =). Do not worry, or start celebrating, just stay tuned. See you at the shows!!!"
