Woe, Is Me's drummer leaves
2013-03-09 by TheMetalLifer | 97 Comments

Metalcore outfit Woe, Is Me has officially parted ways with their drummer Austin Thornton. Here is the official statement from the band:

"After much deliberation, conversation, we have come to an agreement, and we are announcing that we are parting ways with our drummer, Austin Thornton.

Due to differences in musical creativity and control, the forward progression of the band with our current lineup is not possible. The differences just ended up creating more frustration and negativity and we feel as though this change is necessary to move forward and is a positive thing for everyone involved.

This will not be slowing us down. We won't be dropping any of our shows or tour dates, and we'll be releasing a new single in June, just in time for Warped Tour in the summer!

This is a big step for all of us, but we are all looking forward to the future and taking the necessary steps to find the best fit person to join our family on drums.

We wish Austin nothing but the best in his future endeavors.

We love you all. And thank you for your continued support through all of this. Our fans mean the absolute world for us and we do this all for you.

-Kevin, Andrew, Hance, Brian, and Doriano."

He's a pretty good drummer, but its no surprise he's gone. Apparently he's very difficult to work with.

That would be utterly hilarious if he joined Issues. The first comment made me laugh pretty hard.

Well, Of Machines replied to someone's facebook post that he's "absolutely not" joining them. So, guess we're getting a 6th entry in the A Path Less Traveled-Of Machines-Oh, Manhattan-Woe, is Me-Issues drama?

Also, finally.
1: He was kinda why this band had no future (I enjoyed Numbers but Genesis was fucking bad)
2: This leaves ONE original member. If Kevin Hanson leaves, this is literally not Woe, Is Me anymore.
