Chris and Jake will be leaving New Atlantic. You car read a message from the band below.
We’re sorry to announce that Chris and Jake will be leaving New Atlantic. It is very hard to say goodbye to two of your best friends that have been there to help you build something great out of nothing, but we respect their decisions and wish them both the best. Below are personal messages from each of them:
“I want to simply say thank you. Thank you to everyone who supported me over the past few years, the people who had faith in us musically, and to all the fans and familiar faces who came out to shows time and time again. Leaving New Atlantic was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make. Though sad, this change is a very positive thing. I am very excited about the next chapter of my life and am glad to have shared the past few years with my band-mates and all of you. Though touring will not be part of my future, I am still close friends with Matt, Gio, Dave, and Jake, and wish the best to all of them. Love you all.
“As you now know, I have made the decision to leave New Atlantic. Overall, the route I wanted to take was different from the vision my bandmates had. It is on the best of terms and I wish them the best of luck in the future. Thank you so much to all of the Eyeball staff, Matt Watts, Eva and most importantly anyone who continues to support New Atlantic. I will be actively pursuing a new band and plan on being back at it as soon as possible.
