Flotsam And Jetsam Parts With Drummer Kelly Smith
Flotsam and Jetsam has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band's drummer:
"Flotsam and Jetsam, regretfully announce that Kelly Smith will be stepping out from behind the drums to focus on caring for his family. Please, extend him you love and support during this time, as we wish nothing but the best for our Flotsam brother.
"Kelly was instrumental in bringing Flotsam back to its current form with a touring and festival schedule that, since 2013, saw the band perform live in 15 countries and across the U.S. for more than 80 shows.
"As Kelly departs, Flotsam continues work on a new album that is still scheduled for a spring 2015 release, to coincide with the band's upcoming European tour and festival dates.
Details on the upcoming album and new drummer will be released soon."
Kelly also had this to say: "As of August, my family has suffered the loss of two family members and a third is now in critical condition. With all that has taken place, it has taken me away from the focus of my duties in Flotsam for the foreseeable future.
"In 1982 Flotsam (first as DREDLOX, then as DOGZ) was born in Scottsdale, Arizona on my parents back patio. Despite all the progress we have made, I am regretfully unable to continue on this journey, as always I only want the best should my comrades continue the good fight. Flotz til Death."
