Yes, Against Me! have finally released a statement about recent events in the band that led to the cancellation of almost all tour dates for the rest of 2010. The statement says that they have parted ways with not only their drummer, George Rebelos, but also their record company Warner Bros.
The statement suggests that neither decision was made with particular bitterness or regret, but it could signal a big change in the band, as there are rumours that the band may be returning to Fat Wreck Chords. As for a drummer, the band have begun touring again and are currently using Jay Weinberg, ex drummer for both Madball and Bruce Springsteen to fill in George’s role.
The band also hope to rearrange dates in the New Year, which will be great, as I really regretted not being able to see the band last year at The Junction in Cambridge.
