Former bassist Nick Urlacher of metalcore act The Word Alive has posted the following statement online in regards to his decision to leave the band:
"This is hard to start off. What are the right words to say goodbye to a family of friends, family and fans who have changed your life for the last 3 years of your life? A simple goodbye wouldn’t suffice. Yet a long drawn out one would be too much. I’ve decided to leave The Word Alive my friends. This decision doesn’t come easy, by any means of the word.
"The other 5 members have been my road family and home family for what feels like an eternity. We had the best of times and the worst of times, but we were together playing music and touring the country together. We’re friends who will always be there for one another no matter the price.
"This period of my life has changed me in ways that I would have never imagined! I found myself out on that lonely road with them. I will miss all of our friends, family and fans I’ve had the utmost pleasure and honor to meet along my travels with The Word Alive. My life journey hasn’t ended and neither will the band. This band will accomplish so much and Ill be proud of them for all the progress they are GOING to make.
Peace, Love, Farewell,
The Word Alive has posted the following update online, announcing the departure of bassist Nicholas Urlacher.
"So this is not easy to announce for any of us, having one of our best friends departing from our incredible journey is a sad thing. Especially Nick, who has always been one of the best dudes to all of us, as well as someone who could make anyone smile on a bad day and a founding member. But sometimes people have to choose the path that is right for them. We support Nick and love him like a brother and will always consider him apart of the TWA family. Hopefully you will too!
"That being said, we want you guys to know we will not be missing ANY shows. We have a friend from Phoenix filling in for our next tour, so everyone say hi to our friend Daniel from Sharks Never Sleep on tour and be nice! Or else ; )
"We’ll be doing a public search for what will be a permanent member. This isn’t something we will be rushing in the least bit, we want to find the perfect fit for our band and the future of TWA. Below are a list of requirements we’ll need you to submit to firstname.lastname@example.org SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!!
"If you do not fulfill the requirements please do not send an email to the band or this email address.
"We hope that through this change we can only continue to progress and play shows for all of you guys, which is our dream and our focus. Thank you for your understanding and support through everything. We can’t wait to see you in 2011 and will not let this slow us down.
Dusty Zack Telle Tony & Justin"
