Fieldy announced he’ll be taking time off from the band yesterday. In a post shared on social media, the bassist addressed some of his “bad habits” that have caused tension with his bandmates and loved ones.
"The past six years I’ve been dealing with some personal issues that at times have caused me to fall back on some of my bad habits and has caused some tension with the people around me," he wrote in a statement. "It’s been suggested to me to take some time off to heal. I’m going to respect what was asked of me and take that time. Unfortunately you will not see me on stage with my band."
