STATEMENT FROM THE REMAINING MEMBERS OF PENNYWISE

August 21, 2009—The members of Pennywise, Fletcher Dragge, Byron McMackin and Randy Bradbury, have issued the following statement regarding singer Jim Lindberg’s departure:

“After 19 years with Pennywise, Jim Lindberg has decided to step down as lead singer. Pennywise has long stood behind the motto that you should always follow your heart and pursue what makes you happy, and we wish Jim the best of luck in his new ventures, whatever they may be. Pennywise has become a way of life for a lot of people, and has definitely become a way of life for us. As the three remaining members of Pennywise we feel that we are not done delivering our message to our fans.

”The band has always been about moving forward in life no matter what obstacles stand in front of you. We will begin our search for a new singer immediately. We will continue to tour the world and we are looking forward to writing new music. We've had a lot of good times and survived the hard times thanks to the undying support of our fans. We're looking forward to what the future may bring."

Sincerely Fletcher, Randy, and Byron

dammit. It's not Pennywise without Jim. Break up or at least go on with another name.

It says "remaining member of Pennywise". I thought that everyone had left all at once!

I am going to wait and make my opinion after they find a new singer. Who knows they might sound better.

Nobody can replace Jim. They'd be better off touring without a singer and having the crowd sing along.
