For Today Drummer David Morrison Exits The Band To Focus On Missionary Work

For Today drummer David Morrison has stepped down from the group in order to do Christian missions work in Ambato, Ecuador. Ex-The Crimson Armada drummer David Puckett will be replacing him for the time being with Morrison stating:

“The band will not be missing any shows and have a replacement drummer that may end up being permanent. David Puckett will be the drummer for the band on Warped Tour and through the Fall if all works out. I haven’t seen the band with Puckett yet, but he’s a great man of God and an incredible drummer and I’ll be at a couple of the Warped Tour dates. Thank you guys for everything! This has been the best 7 plus years of my life! To God be the glory.”

The split was amicable and the following video statement regarding the departure was released:
