Set Your Goals guitarist leaves band

Set Your Goals has officially announced the departure of guitarist Dave Yoha. The group has issued the following statement: "So the time has finally come to announce Dave's departure from the band. He's expressed to us that the full-time touring lifestyle is no longer right for him, at least not at this point in his life. We support him and there are no hard feelings. Dave gave us notice he would be leaving SYG about a month ago but up until now, we had kept things mostly under wraps and only a few close friends of the band were notified of the unfortunate news. We did this because we do not want our inbox, emails, and voicemails flooded with people asking us to try out. We already have some friends in mind who we're going to try out for lead guitarist so please do not contact us asking to try out. I repeat: please do not contact us asking to try out for lead guitar! Our old guitarist Dan (who Dave originally replaced) will be filling in for our Australia/Japan dates, and we already have a friend of the band in mind for the Gallows UK tour in February. Tonight (Santa Cruz) and tomorrow (Berkeley) will be Dave's last shows with Set Your Goals, so please come out and show your support for one of the best dudes I know. Statement from Dave coming soon. He will be missed!"
