Hey fans, we have some news, unfortunately our drummer Shawn will be leaving the band soon to pursue other musical opportunities. We just want everyone to know this is amicable and we encourage Shawn to follow his dreams and goals. We know how immensely talented he is and wish him the best of luck moving forward. Having said that we'll be looking for a new drummer so please spread the word and help us find the next piece to the grey matter puzzle!
We'd also like to share the departing words from our good friend Shawn, he'll always be an important chapter in the story of Dyed In Grey...
"I've had a blast playing drums live with Dyed in Grey the last 2 years. It's been an inspiring musical challenge and I've grown immeasurably from the experience. I'm grateful for their support and patience while I simultaneously kept up a busy drumming schedule outside the band.
As of October, I'll be leaving DiG to focus on other musical opportunities that demand my attention. This will also allow the band to continue forward with someone who can provide the necessary commitment in the next stage of their career.
The guys have been extremely understanding throughout this decision, for which I cannot thank them enough. I've thoroughly enjoyed the music and friendships that have come out of these 2 years and wish DiG the best of success in the future. I have no regrets!
Lastly, thanks to the fans -- because every little thing you do goes a long way in supporting the music you love and the musicians who make it.
My last DiG show will be October 3rd at Blackthorn 51 (Queens, NY)--which incidentally is where I played my 1st show with the band. So hope to see you rocking out there one last time." - Shawn Crowder
