From Afar Splits With Drummer Mat Taylor

Brighton act From Afar has issued the following announcement about parting ways with drummer Mat Taylor:

"This week has definitely been one of the most tumultuous in terms of events for our band and we feel that we owe you the courtesy of keeping all of you in the loop because of the support you have shown us.

"A parting of ways has been decided between our drummer, Mat, and the rest of the band. It is with tremendous pain that we announce the departure of one of the founding members of the band, however this decision has been reached with no animosity as people's interest and priorities lay in different places.

"Mat will be playing with us for a last couple of shows at the end of this month and we wish him the absolute best in whatever direction he decides to go in. We are still working on new material and we will be conducting auditions to find a new drummer soon.

"We thank you all for your time and consideration. We will keep you posted on upcoming auditions."
