Bloodlined Calligraphy loses singer, drummer

Michigan hardcore/metal band Bloodlined Calligraphy has lost the services of both singer Ally French and drummer Matt Carter. The remaining members of the group have issued the following statement: "During our last tour Carter decided touring life at this level is not for him. He has a lot on his plate at home that needs to be taken care of. And we all understand that. He decided this with 4 shows left to play. He really helped us out by playing all 4 of the shows and even offering to show the new drummer the parts. After 10 years of being in musical project together he will be missed, but this is best for everyone involved. VS. The day before we left for this current tour, I recieved a TEXT MESSAGE from Ally saying that she wasnt going on tour with us. The day before we leave. She has decided to move to Oklahoma with her husband. Which is fine. But to let us know the day before we leave when we were home for 2 weeks, which would have given us plenty of time to get a fill in all ready to go and clear their schedule to leave town for 6 weeks, is just whack. There's no other way around it. Oh well, Best of luck to her. So with that said, we will still be going out on this tour. We have friends who were willing to come out and help us get through this trying time. What we need from you guys is all the support we can get in this situation. We need you guys to come out and support the people that have basically saved Ryan, Shawn and Myselfs lives. It will be different for this tour but i gurantee you that we will come out 100 times stronger with these changes. Trust me, as a memeber of this band they are both for the better. We are all excited and looking forward to starting this new chapter in BLC. Know this though. THIS IS NOT OVER!!!!. We have come too far in this band to let this stop us. So as long as you guys are here for us, we will be there for you, and like i said, the next chapter of BLC is gonna be brutal. So stick with us. You won't be dissapointed."
