Guitarist Jim Ward has parted ways with his band At the Drive-In, right before their world tour that will kick off in Santa Ana, CA tomorrow (22nd March).
“As our ship prepares for voyage, we announce that Jim Ward will not be joining us on future journeys,” the band explain on Facebook. “We wish him well and are excited to see you soon.”
The group only recently confirmed they’re working on new music. “We’re all excited to be seeing each other, to be playing in a room again, and to be making music under a new context,” guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López told Fuse.
“This is where we all came from. We have different families now, we live in different places, but these are our roots, and a true person never forgets their roots. There’s a safety in being around people you trust.”
