Burnt By The Sun loses singer, drummer

The future of Burnt By The Sun is in doubt as frontman Mike Olender and drummer Dave Witte have now left the group. Remaining members Teddy Patterson and John Adubato may or may not continue under the same name. Here's what Mike Olender told Lambgoat about the split earlier today: "The decision was amicable and there are no ill feelings between any of us. This core line-up was really exciting, satisfying, and rewarding for me to take part in and I'm honored to have shared the last 4 years with Dave, Ted, and John. We wrote music that we loved and tried to convey a message that made people think." Olender will do a few more shows with For The Love Of, before focusing on his website The O Report (link). Witte will continue on with various other projects. Adubato and his wife are expecting another child in November.
