In This InterviewI would say that based upon how positive this has been, and we’ll see how it goes on the one show, we’re open to anything. There’s nothing set and nothing specific, but if this goes well, and so far it has, I wouldn’t say it’s a definite, but probably more of a possibility than not a possibility.

Josh Eppard of Terrible Things has done a full interview in regards to how the band informed Andy Jackson of his departure and the events that led up to their decision. Read it here.
InterviewWell, it was me that informed [Andy] that he would no longer be in the band. There are a lot of things when you’re in a band, and he lives pretty far away. I don’t really care how people take it. Andy didn’t quit the band; it just kind of happened. I know that that seems like a very kind of convenient thing to say, but he was really far away.
