Currents drummer quits band
Connecticut metal band Currents has announced the departure of drummer Jeff Brown. The group had the following to say:
"We're sad to announce that our drummer Jeff Brown will be leaving Currents. Getting to where we are now would not be possible without him. We love, respect and wish the best for him. Jeff is moving forward with his life goals and we're incredibly proud to call him our friend and brother. Thank you for everything, Jeff!"Meanwhile, Brown issued this statement:
"Just wanted to announce that I will be leaving Currents. I will be pursuing other goals that I have had on my mind and have been putting off for awhile. I didn't want to hold the rest of the guys back. They are an extremely talented group of individuals and deserve someone who will give it 100% again. I'll definitely miss the crazy shows and meeting all of you guys. This band was a huge part of my life and I can't wait to watch it grow into something bigger. I never dreamed a band I started in my parents basement would grow into something that it is today. Thanks for all the support over the years. I just grew out of the touring lifestyle, it honestly just wasn't for me anymore. It's not easy being away from your family all the time especially when dealing with depression like I do."
