Sworn In hate trains
2013-07-23 by Mabbitt | 42 Comments

Illinois hardcore band Sworn In have kicked their bassist Sean Banks out. According to Banks, the reasoning is because he collects trains.

"Recently my longtime hobby of building and collecting model trains had gotten to be too much for the band. I had skipped practice, spent all my tour money, and basically never saw my band. I became too involved in the trains and they had enough of me putting it as my number one priority. I am currently searching for a new band to play guitar or bass in."

I keep trying to come up with a good joke about how trains and breakdowns both chug but I really can't.

"BTW, this might be the best news story submitted to Sputnik in recent memory. "

Who knows? Maybe the bassist writes the song structures. That might explain all the chugging.

That was terrible I know

hahaha, that reminds me of a good friend of mine. The dude is a great musician, he just loves trains way more. Nearly his whole backyard is filled with model trains.

I don't think he ever got kicked out of a band. He just used to be really active in our local music community and has since vanished from it.
