Atlanta, Georgia's Woe, Is Me
has lost nearly half of their lineup, as Michael Bohn
(vocals), Cory Ferris
(bass), and Ben Ferris
(keyboards, vocals) have departed the group. Alternative Press
posted the following statement on behalf of the three:
"It doesn't come with any ease to announce, but the three of us have left Woe, is me.
"Our differences were just too vast on so many levels: Musical, personal/moral, and professional/business. It came to a point where we could either continue on the path they saw fit, or we could create our own path and find happiness in our own ways.
"We have nothing but gratitude for all of the fans. Every handshake, high-five, hug, pat on the back, and kind word from you guys and gals means the absolute world to us.
"When one door closes, another opens: and we can't wait to see what's on the other side of this new door.
"Hope to see you on the road soon."
The band's remaining members have subsequently issued the following:
"What you've heard is true- but it's something that we've prepared for, addressed, and already handled. Trust us, when we say 'everything is going to be just fine' (; Oh, and we'll be seeing you in two days. So be ready.
"P.s: u[s] breaking up, is out of the question. Every tour, and every plan will be followed through with full heart. We'll be releasing a video press release tomorrow to fill everyone in on things to come. #neverstronger"
