The Famine have parted ways with their drummer Mark Garza. Speaking via his his blog, Garza offered the following on his decision to leave:
“Its true that I have left The Famine with no particular destination as of now. I don’t have any scandalous reason why I left other than I know when its my time to go and I just went. I believe that I did everything I could to accomplish the reasonable goals that I had while in this band, but as a musician, i’m always looking to be challenged, and that passion had been waning.
I don’t think that The Famine is a victim of the “industry” or that I have any personal regrets, except that I had hoped to play by our own rules in an effort to not damage our personal lives the way we had numerous times before, but the music business IS a mess right now and there are no rules. So, im humbled by your support for me and The Famine and hope that you support them as they continue to fight the good fight.”
