It’s a sad day for Chon fans. The band has recently announced on social media the departure of bassist Drew Pelisek. They have not given an explanation for it but the impression is that everything between the band and Drew is alright.
Chon released the following statement on Facebook:
Drew himself shared the news on Instragram as you can see below:
hey guys, i am no longer a member of CHON. thank you so much to everyone who came to a show or bought an album or listened to a song over the last couple years. ive learned a tremendous amount playing and touring with these guys and i hope (know) you will continue to follow everything they do. and a huge thanks to the 3 of them for the opportunity to play in this band, much love always. have a great weekend everybody and once again THANK YOU. it's been real fun.
It’s always sad to see a member from such a great band leave. He will be missed but hopefully good things will come from this. We at It Djents wish Drew the best for him and his future projects and endeavours.
In the next few days the band will probably announce a replacement for their next tour dates. They are set to perform on New Years Eve in Maryland, USA with Papadosio and then tour Australia with Between the Buried and Me. We will keep you updated.
