Frontman Jim Lindberg has decided to leave Pennywise. I know what your’re thinking..but yes, I am serious and I am equally as shocked. He made the following statement:
“After 20 years, nine albums and thousands of shows around the world, my time in Pennywise has come to an end. Being the singer for this band has been an amazing experience, and along the way we made some of the best fans anyone could ask for. I want to express my deepest thanks to all of you for sticking with us over the years, especially through the passing of Jason years ago. It’s your support and encouragement that kept me going this long. There are few things that made me more proud than seeing people at our shows singing our songs. I would also sincerely like to thank everyone who helped us along the way, in every capacity, we never could have done it without you, and I wish everyone in the Pennywise family the best of luck and continued success.
Yours truly, Jim”
So what’s going to happen to Pennywise?? Replacing a singer is quite a challenge….will they ever be the same again? I don’t really know if that’s possible…Let us know what you think.
Their last album, “Reason To Believe” was released in 2008 on Myspace Records…who knew it would be Jim’s final album with the band.
