After many years with American Football, my life situation has changed. Unfortunately, I now need to move on from the band.
I’d like to thank Mike, Holmes, Nate, Garzon, and Cory; Amber, Cara, and Butch; Jason, Jim, and Todd; Matt, Darcie, Seth, and everyone else at Polyvinyl; Atiba, Damien, Evan, SB, Sarah V, Dan, Sarah T, Meric, Logan, and the many other amazing artists and people whom I’ve come to know through AF.
I wish you all the best as the band moves on to its next phase.
Finally, I’d like to thank AF fans: you have provided me with some truly amazing experiences—and some truly amazing memories.
I’m deeply grateful.
