Ok, don’t freak out, but Casey left the band.” Sad to say Fake Problems has announced the departure of long-time guitarist Casey Lee from their lineup. The band states Lee left on good terms:
“In November Casey told us he didn’t want to be in a band anymore. He’s basically just not into traveling so much anymore. We understand and we love him very much, and we’re all still good friends. We wish him all of the luck in the world in his future endeavors. We’ll be performing all of our upcoming shows (Naples show, Orange You Glad Fest, SXSW, Say Anything tour) with our friend Brian on guitar duties. Other than that, we’ve been working hard the past few months writing a new record, which I will tell you more about soon. OK! Sorry for the bum out but it’s all gonna be OKAY. <3″
A new album will be the band’s fourth full-length, a follow-up to “Real Ghosts Caught On Tape”, released in September, 2010 on SideOneDummy Records.
