The Word Alive drummer Luke Holland leaving band

Luke Holland, drummer of Arizona metalcore act The Word Alive, will be leaving the group following their fall tour. Holland joined the band in 2012. TWA has issued the following statement:
"We're writing you this afternoon with some bitter sweet news. After almost 5 years of being a part of the TWA family, Luke Holland will be saying goodbye at the end of this year. The Overdose Tour will be his final tour. We've been through so much together, and that is a bond that will last a life time. However, it's time for Luke to explore other musical endeavors and pursue passions outside of The Word Alive. We wish him nothing but the best, and sincerely support him in his future just as he supports us in ours. We decided to let you know before the tour so you could have the opportunity to celebrate this chapter coming to an end with us, instead of being blind-sided at the start of the new year. "We're continuing on, finishing the Dark Matter album cycle with some incredible tours all over the world in 2017. The Overdose Tour will feature our longest headlining set to date including songs we've never played live before, as well as some songs we haven't played in years. "We look forward to sharing our music with you for years to come."

Never heard ghost notes like this drummer before so much respect still pushing pushing creativity in a genre that really needs it

Some "bitter, sweet" news or some bittersweet news? The word is not alive here, folks.

Slow news day. Stoked that BURN is going to release a new album tho. I saw Meshuggah last night. They were really good. Emmure still sucks. Fronz won't comment. LAMBGOAT.COM is forever what it is and I'll keep coming back, as I have for 13 years. Webby, get stoked for the upcoming Back Of Tha Neck reunion show. This message board took off due to them over a decade ago. Hardcore lives.

You mean he's following Jason Richardson and drumming for him and making some sort or solo album that's crowd funded to make more money than he ever did with that band? Hell he might even make a new band with Jason cash money y'all

Fronz probably is unable to respond as I lodged numerous complaints against his whack ass... and other board members.
