Erra Splits With Bassist Adam Hicks

Alabama act Erra has posted the following message online about parting ways with the band's bassist Adam Hicks:

"Just to fill everyone in: Our bassist Adam quit the band Sunday. It wasn't over any kind of personal vendetta or turmoil. He just felt that his place wasn't with the band anymore and has decided to go to college full time.

"We're all bummed as you can imagine, but we would never hold him back from a decision like that. He will still be playing with us until we find a fill-in, and will still be working with us in the studio in February.

"We ask that you please DO NOT post any kind of tryout submissions to our wall. We are undecided about how we will go about finding a replacement and until we decide whether or not we want to organize tryouts, we ask that you please do not send them to us.

"With this sad news in mind, acknowledge that the next step from here is to continue moving forward. No matter what the struggle, this band is not over until we're either satisfied with our progress or dead.

"I can tell you that we are definitely not satisfied yet. There are so many things left for us to accomplish, and we aren't stopping until we accomplish those things. We love you all, Adam loves you all, and we look forward to giving you a new record in 2013 that we are confident will not disappoint."
