After three members of Relient K dropped off their current tour with HelloGoodbye and William Beckett, now comes word that they have officially lost their drummer, Ethan Luck. Luck posted the following statement about his abrupt departure after only being with the band for five years.
“To all the great fans of Relient K
It saddens me, more than you know, to tell you that I have left Relient K. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the last 5 years. You all made me feel like I was in the band longer than I was. Thank you all for taking the time and spending the money to come to the shows, allowing me to have a job in music. Thank you for spending time with me after shows, having good conversation or just saying hello. I am beyond grateful. I love being on tour so much and I can’t wait to play for you all again. I’m currently out with Cold War Kids, guitar teching. Come on out to a show and say hello! Trust me when I say, I wish this would have turned out differently. I tried my very best to not have things get to this point.
God Bless You All.
When it was announced that three of the members would not be heading out on tour with them, Luck was one of the three who would not be present. So far, the band have not released a statement about Luck’s departure nor who would be filling in for him on tour.
