Sworn In kicks out bassist
Last week Illinois band Sworn In reportedly ousted bass player Sean Banks, who had been with the band since 2012. Banks sent us the following explanation (which he claims is legit):
"Recently my longtime hobby of building and collecting model trains had gotten to be too much for the band. I had skipped practice, spent all my tour money, and basically never saw my band. I became too involved in the trains and they had enough of me putting it as my number one priority. I am currently searching for a new band to play guitar or bass in."
