Bassist and founding member of Maryland metal band As The Kingdom Falls, Andrew Markle, has announced his departure from the band.
"Its Andrew just letting you know whats going on. I have stepped down from my position in As the Kingdom Falls. I feel it would just be better for me if I parted ways now. Why? Just musical differences. I need some time to think about things. I'm still on good terms with almost everyone. Their new music is a lot different but I feel it will be well accepted by everyone and you will really dig the new shit. I have started a new project though. You can check that out if you want.
"I hope you all still continue supporting this band. They'll be doing big things in 2009. You can count on that. This is goodbye for me. It wasn't an easy decision but it was the most efficient one for the band. Keep supporting ATKF. So long."
As The Kingdom Falls is currently seeking a replacement. You can contact the band on their MySpace page.
As The Kingdom Falls has posted a rough mix of a new song online and issued an update on other stuff as well. Here's the update from the band:
"Andrew checking in let you all know whats going on. First off, We've been rough recording some of our songs as you can tell with the new track on our myspace entitled "Permanent Cessation". The bass pedals are unable to be heard very clearly we do know that. Its a rough demo and our actual EP is being recorded this upcoming month.
"Also, it was brought to my attention that one of our very few local venues, the Delaplaine Arts Center, is now no longer doing shows. I thought that was a little odd. So I looked into it a little bit. Apparently it was our fault the venue got shut down. I've heard this from some people and I don't know if this is true or not. I am quite upset at this. If it was shut down due to us being "violent" or using profanity then I apologize. I just think its another way to show that our music scene for Metal in Frederick is dying and or dead. We try to put on house shows and other shows in the area. But anyways, If its true that the Delaplaine did shut down due to our performance I am sorry but that is sad. We will be trying to open our own venue in Frederick sometime, I can;t say how soon but the sooner the better. Also, religion has NOTHING to do with music. Just becuase we aren't Chirstian does not mean we are not nice people.
"Anyhow, new music is coming your way soon. We'll have the EP updated for you all soon. We will be touring at the end of December. Check the dates and help us book any if you can. Thanks a lot!!"

"Hey guys this should answer all your questions regarding why I am leaving the band. First off nothing happened no fights, disagreements etc.. I am leaving out of my own will because I think it is whats best for ATKF and I.
