Psycho Spoon guitarist C.C. Murphree has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band:
"Before this gets through the grape vine as things like this tend to do, (and because I've already been questioned about missing the photoshoot Sunday) I am going to go ahead and announce that I have decided that it is best for me, my family, and the band that I leave Psycho Spoon.
"There are no hard feelings between any of us, and I still love and respect them all as great friends and brothers. I was going to play the show coming up on the 25th as a farewell, but they have found a special guest to fill in that I think is going to be pretty freaking cool (No it's not Karl).
"I will continue to support the guys in the future because I believe that this band has what it takes to make it. But, I have a seven year old daughter, and 12 year old son who are growing up faster every day. Instead of using weeks of my vacation to tour and be a rock star, I feel that I should be using that time to take my kids to places like Disneyland and be a father instead.
"It has truly been one of the biggest honors of my life to play with Pete, Rick Mark and Decha. Thank you so much guys for the chance to get to play with greats like you.
"I will now start concentrating on my album to finish writing and getting all of it recorded with the help of many of you who have jumped on board with me to offer your talents. And I am very excited to get to work with some of you that I have never gotten to work with before, and others I haven't worked with in many years. Keep the horns flying high."
Psycho Spoon, which features former Nile member Pete Hammoura, is proud to announce that production of the band's debut CD entitled “Incognito” will begin in January, with a scheduled released date of April 2013. Psycho Spoon comments:
