Divinity Destroyed's former drummer Dan Leonard discusses his reasons for leaving the band:

"I had an opportunity of a life time that I had to act on. Everyone I know, including the band, said I would be stupid if I didn't act on it. Originally, I didn't think I'd be able to play shows till probably after May. Right now, I told the band that I can still play Fridays locally and wherever on Saturdays since I got the hang of things. In future, after May, I don't know what my schedule will be. Thats really all I can say about it. It's been difficult to practice music lately with my schedule but thats always something that can improve as long as everyone knows what the objective is and remain on the same page."

"I didn't want to give everything up that we worked on for 8 years. Majority rules in a band situation and if they want to continue looking for a replacement then thats what they will do. If people want to say I couldn't tough it out or that I quit, that's fine. They really don't know me or my situation. I'm not going to give a synopsis of what it's like in the band or what goes on but it wasn't easy to even consider branching out in my life goals. Then again, the band is not in the same standing that it was in the early years."

"Honestly, I really don't even know what to think and I know I'm not alone when I say that. I don't know if I'm in the band or not and I don't know what the plan is either. Like I said, I'd love to still play the shows that I can play but I'm one voice out of five."

"Also, some of you may have noticed my Myspace is gone. I had to get rid of it for certain reasons. You can email me at danielleonard138@comcast.net. I'd like to hear from you all. Thanks guys."
