Gwen Stacy has amicably parted ways with vocalist, Bobby Oakley. The group has issued the following statement: "After a year of touring with Gwen Stacy, Bobby has decided to step down. He has decided that his heart is no longer with being in a touring band. He's off to finish his degree in graphic design and spend time with loved ones. We want to thank him for joining the band when we were in need of a guitar player and keeping the band alive by filling in on vocals when we were almost down and out. It is sad to see him go, but he's got great things in store. Bob, we love you. "Now for the good news... We will not be missing any tour dates. We are happy to let you know that our friend Keith Jones, formerly of the Rise Records band Oceana, will be doing vocals for us on this tour. We're excited to have him around and hope that you all are excited as well. It's going to be a lot of fun."
