Counterparts have posted the following statement online, announcing the departure of drummer Chris Needham from the group's ranks.
"Some very important/sad/exciting/whatever news today. Chris Needham, our good friend and drummer for this past year has decided to leave Counterparts. Unfortunately, the band just wasn’t what Chris wanted from life anymore, and that’s basically all that can be said about that. He was an unreal kid, and we’re going to miss that silly bastard more than he even knows.
"However, in the meantime (this is where the news gets exciting) we’re going to be jamming with an old friend that some of you may remember. His name is Ryan Juntilla, and he played drums with us for many years. He’s been kind enough to help us out over the next little while so we can continue writing, playing shows, and hopefully putting that new record into your fat little fingers."
