ex-Issues drummer speaks out on former band

Monday, September 23, 2013 7:45 AM PT


Former Issues drummer Case Snedecor has now issued a statement regarding his termination from the band earlier this year. Among his accusations are that he was never paid royalties or received his cut of merchandise profits. Here you go:

I'm not exactly sure why I'm writing this, other than the fact that apparently I've been nothing but trash talked by my former band.

I was kicked out of Issues because apparently they didn't think I was a "good enough" drummer. It was so embarrassing because for awhile I honestly believed this to be true. Well honestly, the reason I was kicked out is because I disagreed with someone in that band so much, that he said if I was in the band, he wouldn't be. The BAND told me this. He is a key writer so I got kicked out.

"SUPPOSEDLY" I can't play Hooligans up to par. The most popular video of Hooligans that everyone saw live with me just so happened to be the night I was the sickest I'd ever been. So later down the road this member used it as leverage to "prove" his point.

The new drummer, Josh, who was my friend, went to dinner with me after I was kicked out and told me that he was offered the position. He then asked me if I'd been paid my promised pay from the band. I said no, and he said he would make sure that happened (never did). I told him to join the band because my experience was something I could have never had elsewhere and he said "I don't know why they want me, your feet are better than mine."

So I'm going to start this part by saying Josh is an unbelievable drummer. He's better than I am but he's also got 3 years on me. My house was where Issues lived while in GA and practiced. When we got home from tour, my parents had sold the house and moved to where we couldn't practice or all stay. Josh has a house with a studio. People from the band moved into his house even before I joined. Why not have your roommate play in your band? Couldn't hurt your chances of a place to stay. Also, they had nothing more to "gain" from me.

I never got my royalties that I'm contracted to, merch cuts that I was promised, or even a sorry for completely screwing me out of a career.

They can say I screwed myself all they'd like, but I know for fact that I can play those drum parts and I think most the people that saw me with Issues can attest to that. And to all of the doubters, I'd gladly post a video of me playing Hooligans whenever I can get a camera on me.

I'm posting this because I've been BEGGED to tell the truth of my departure. It's possible they'll come back with some post about my inferiority at drums or something else insulting, but this is the honest truth and I feel much better now that I've actually written it out.

Continue to support them, because I honestly believe most of them are good people. But just know that not everything is cut and dry.

Don't dramatize this, just take it for what it is. I will not talk about Issues anymore on social networks, I'm done, this is me burning the bridge. I promise.

I love you all.

Now this is a cryfest. Searched your said video and seem this horrible excuse for a shit band did you a favor by kicking you out. Maybe Josh's place is cozier? I hear the Gathering of the Juggalos is always looking for good talent.

This is gay, rich kid bullshit. Unfortunately, gay rich kids are the only ones who can afford to tour anymore.

Have fun pretending you're a musician.

snede-core: a musical sub-genre known for its extreme minimalism in terms of both songwriting and production. Snede-core bands, also known as "whining gays", prefer to forgo traditional pop music formulas and some trim the songs down to such an extreme that there is almost no song left. The only part left untouched in the arrangement is a rambling sob story, usually about a misunderstood homosexual, who can't believe he didn't get everything he wanted out of life by age 22.

Worked with issues once in a venue I work at. Have to say drummer was the only one that could play ( did play ) his instrument. Vocals sounded like two cats being bashed into a wall. I hope that one day the laptop crashes.
