We are sad to announce that our beloved Mister A, Andrew Chamberlaine, is leaving the band. This is what Andrew had to say:
“Dear Friends, Family, And Fans of Mister F,
I’d like to start off by saying that this last 3 years has been one of the most special times in my life. Making music with my best friends Ben, Matt, Scott, and Mike while visiting at least 20 new states will always be one of the best memories I’ll ever have, however it is something I will not be continuing in 2016. I’ve made so many new friends this past 3 years, most of you musicians, and as many of you know, being away 100-150 nights a year can be as difficult as it can be fun. 2015 has been a wild year for Mister F and for myself, and 2016 will be even bigger for the guys. The Misters are 100% my best and closest friends, more like family at this point, and are hands-down some of the best damn musicians I’ve ever made music with. I feel like my bond with them will never truly end, as they all have my support as much as I’ve had theirs through this tough choice.
I’d also like to add that my involvement with Music will ALWAYS remain intact. Teaching and composing music, playing the guitar, and seeing my favorite bands are more than things I do, they are a part of who I am, and I will never stop contributing to this wonderful art. I plan to play and write as much as I can while building my student base at Parkway Music.
I will be playing 12/31 and 1/1 before parting ways with Mister F, and I hope to see you all out for these shows. Thanks everyone for your continued support with the group, I’m excited to see where the future takes these talented gents.”
We have a lot to consider at the moment and we promise to keep everybody posted on a permanent replacement. While we will miss Andrew dearly, we are happy to bring along our friend Mike Candela, former guitarist of Dale and the ZDubs, on tour with us for this January run!
