Oh, Sleeper bassist Lucas Starr leaves the band

Texas Christian metalcore act Oh, Sleeper announced today that founding bass player Lucas Starr has decided it was time to become a responsible grown-up and move on from the band.  He’ll be replaced by the band’s friend Nate Grady, who has filled in on previous tours.

Oh, Sleeper are currently recording the follow-up to “Son of the Morning,” released in 2009 on Solid State.

Hey Archers, Lucas here. I’ve come bearing bittersweet news and there

is so much I’d like to say, but I promised myself I wasn’t gonna

make a long dramatic deal out of this. Haha. So to the point….I’m

not gonna be able to continue into record 3 with Oh, Sleeper. This was

one of the hardest decisions that I’ve ever had to make, but as a 26

year old adult, it has become impossible to tour and to pay my bills.

I recently moved out of my moms house, and into a nice apartment. So I

felt like it was time to step down and be a grown up, regroup, and pay

some bills. Our good friend Nate Grady will be taking my place. Some

of you might remember him from when he filled in for me last year on

the west coast. He’s a great musician, and please believe me when I

say that you guys are gonna freak when you hear the new Oh, Sleeper

songs. They are by far the best songs that Shane and James has ever

written. I can’t thank you guys enough for the love and memories. I’ve

made many friends over the last 5 years, and I hope you will all

continue to keep in touch on Facebook and stuff.

(www.facebook.com/lucasstarr) I’ll never stop playing music, I just

have to close this chapter of my life so that I can continue to grow

as a man. My girlfriend and I started a side project a few months ago

called “At Night We Strike” and we’ll be writing stuff for that from

the comfort of our own home. Haha. We just posted a new song we wrote

and recorded called “Don’t Let It Take Control” and it’s on our

Facebook page (http://listn.to/atnightwestrike). Probably not what

you’re going to expect, but we’re just making music that we enjoy.

Please feel free to pass the music along to anyone who you think might

enjoy it also. I hope that all of you will keep up with me and my

journey through life. It’s just beginning. :) Be blessed friends.

Until next time….

your friend,

Lucas Starr
