Bassist Andrew Seward Parts Ways with Against Me!
After a ten-year run, bassist Andrew Seward of Florida punk outfit Against Me! has announced his decision to part ways with his bandmates. This follows last December’s announcement from drummer Jay Weinberg that he was also leaving the band.
From the band:
“From Andrew, James and Laura
I’ve left AM!. No drama here. I reached a point where I need to focus on other things. Respect to Laura and James. The last 10 years ruled. -Andrew
It’s been an honor and privilege to stand on stage with Andrew for the past 10 years. I am sad to see him go, but I wish nothing but the best for him moving forward. – James
It’s heartbreaking to know that Andrew won’t be standing next to me out on stage the next time I stand upon one.
I realize that at this point there’s a possibility that it may look pretty ridiculous to carry on playing under the name Against Me!
If I didn’t feel like I had something that I really needed to say with the album we’ve been working on for the past year then I’d humbly hang the hat and move on.
Andrew’s been a solid partner. Some of the best sleep I’ve ever gotten has been in the back of a 15 passenger van with him behind the wheel. He’s got a steady hand and has always been someone I’ve trusted. The definition of a good friend. I wish him all the best in his journey. -LJ”
