Wed, April 17, 2013 11:46 AM PT4,012 views

Polar Bear Club has announced the departure of bass player Erik Henning, who has left the group to "move on to other things in life." Band friend Ty Smith has been filling in as-of-late. Here's the official word:
"We wanted to throw this out there just to let everyone know that our boy and bass man Goose (Erik Henning) has left PBC. I don't want to speak for him too much but simply put, he was ready to move on to other things in life and we're happy for him. We truly wish him the best and if you like, you can too over @American_Goose. If you've seen us on our current tour you may have noticed a very tall man-boy holding what looks like a toy bass in his gargantuan arms. That's Ty Smith. He's an old friend of ours and he'll be holding down the bass duties for us. Everything else is good in PBC world. This tour with Bad Religion and The Bronx has been something else and we're sad to see it coming to a close. However, we are excited as hell to start working on all the stuff coming up for us this summer, more on that later. Thanks for reading and see you on tour!"

Couldn't hear him anyways, no care. What's happening with Emmure?

3rd member change in 18 months. why are they still even a band?

Awesome guys. Sad to see him go. These guys put on such a fun show. Clash Battle Guilt Pride was seriously one of the best albums.

Such a shame, great band. Erik once let me fingerblast between his buttocks after a show in Minneapolis

Somebody's gotta pay rent. Psst ... Your scene is gay.

Too bad this isn't something about them dying in a van flip. Wasted my time reading and then writing this comment.
