Metalcore act Lydia Ayer has issued the following announcement about parting ways with vocalist Nick Valaskatgis:
"Hey everyone, I (Nick) will no longer be in the band. I would like to thank all those people who supported us, screamed into the mic, connected to a lyric or went out of their way to compliment me or the rest of the band. It seriously made making music worth it.
"Unfortunately, I won't be able to balance that and school. I have to put my full concentration on a dream I had since I was 10. I can tell you this crew of guys (my best friends) are working to the bone writing truly amazing music right now, it literally blows Cliffhanger out of the water.
"There is not a drop of bad blood, these guys will always be my brothers and this is what they are born to do. Sadly, I will not be performing a last show but I will be on a final song.
"Always chase your dreams, don't let anyone control who you are or dictate your life! Thank you all so much for everything."
