Band Announcement, 03/31/14


Pete and Ron here.

It's with a heavy heart that we confirm that Bret and Paul have decided to leave the band. As for the immediate future, we will be performing all of the booked shows listed on our Shows Page with Nyke and Dustin and some 'special guests' starting on April 12th in Carlisle, PA.

The Badlees have always been greater than the sum of its parts, and therefore, after these shows are done, we will not be performing or recording as 'The Badlees' for the foreseeable future. We want to honor the legacy of 'The Badlees' and we feel that this is the best way to do that. All of us will still continue to make music outside of the band.

As for the fans, first, we want to thank you for 23 plus years of loyalty. Your support over the band's career means the world to us and we can't thank you enough for everything you've done. We ask that you are patient with us as we work through this transitional time.

Hope to see everyone in Carlisle on the 12th.
Thanks again and see ya out there...
