Earlier this week, Sick Puppies revealed that they were moving on without frontman Shimon Moore. He now reveals that while there was tension in the band, the announcement of his exit by his bandmates was the first he had heard of it. Read below:
On October 20th Sick Puppies announced that I was leaving the band. This was the first I had heard of it. The truth is that there was tension in the band after the many years of touring. I had hoped that some time apart would resolve these issues and lead us to the next phase of our career. It unfortunately seems that Emma and Mark have decided to move on with a new singer instead. It has taken a couple of days for me to respond because I have needed a bit of time to get over the news.
Emma, Mark and I have done the impossible together. We turned a bunch of songs and a dream into a reality, then traveled the world to show it to everyone. For that I will always be grateful to them. I am deeply saddened to have lost my band after all these years.
I am so touched by the messages from you all asking me if I will be continuing in music and the answer is obviously “Yes.”
Since the announcement I have been locked out of all the Sick Puppies socials and mailing lists so you won’t be able to hear about it through those sites. If you want to hear my new music, please follow and share my socials with your friends from the links below.
For those of you I may lose during this time, I will miss you. For those of you who will stand by me, I will not let you down.
Please remember one of my favorite lyrics. “Every new beginning, comes from some other beginnings end.”
… I’ll be right here
