Yesterday on their official website, Social Distortion announced that their drummer, Adam “Atom” Willard, is leaving the band to pursue his work in Angels & Airwaves. Willard took over percussion responsibilities of Social D after the departure of Charlie Quintana last year. Here’s what the D had to say,
Due to many foreseeable scheduling conflicts with his band Angels And Airwaves, we regret to announce that Atom Willard will no longer be able to continue on drums for Social Distortion.

Atom will be sorely missed, but we wish him the very best.
It has not yet been announced who will be the next replacement drummer, which raises many questions about the new album currently in the works…
