After eighteen years of drumming for MxPx, Yuri Ruley has announced that he is retiring in order to focus more on his family life. His last show will be the band’s last performance in Las Vegas on July 18th.
Ruley had this to say about his retirement: “With MxPx being a touring band and constantly on the road 9 months out of the year, I knew at some point it would have to come to an end, but the reality of it is a lot harder than I thought it would be. MxPx has been my second family for nearly two decades, but I need to step away to focus on raising my family.”
