    Default Pennywise has lost their singer

    What a sad day for us! According to this article I just read on Punknews.org, Pennywise's lead singer Jim Lindberg has left the band, but we don't know who's going to replace him. Here's the reason why he left:

    "After 20 years, nine albums and thousands of shows around the world, my time in Pennywise has come to an end. Being the singer for this band has been an amazing experience, and along the way we made some of the best fans anyone could ask for. There are few things that made me more proud than seeing people at our shows singing our songs, and it's your support and encouragement that's kept me going this long. would sincerely like to thank everyone who helped us along the way and wish everyone in the Pennywise family the best of luck and continued success. Yours truly, Jim."

    According to the source, Jim is currently working on a documentary based on his book Punk Rock Dad, and he's set to begin recording for an as-yet-untitled release.

    It almost does look like the band is breaking up, but Jim left the band once back in '92 when or before they were writing the Unknown Road record.

    summarizing: pennywise is dead!
    The Portuguese Chapter:

    New definition for The Offspring => "hard-driving heavy metal band" (@ this)

    Because I'm already sick and the color scheme must have set me off. Sorry about that.

    I wouldn't be too disappointed if they disbanded after this. They've had a good run, I think. Most bands don't last as long as they did.

    The reason I named this thread "Pennywise has lost their singer" was because Jim had just left the group and the band doesn't even have a replacement for him yet.

    Statement from Pennywise Regarding Jim Lindberg Leaving Band
    The members of Pennywise, Fletcher Dragge, Byron McMackin and Randy Bradbury,have issued the following statement regarding singer Jim Lindberg’s departure:

    “After 19 years with Pennywise, Jim Lindberg has decided to step down as lead singer. Pennywise has long stood behind the motto that you should always follow your heart and pursue what makes you happy, and we wish Jim the best of luck in his new ventures, whatever they may be. Pennywise has become a way of life for a lot of people, and has definitely become a way of life for us. As the three remaining members of Pennywise, we feel that we are not done delivering our message to our fans.

    ”The band has always been about moving forward in life no matter what obstacles stand in front of you. We will begin our search for a new singer immediately. We will continue to tour the world and we are looking forward to writing new music. We've had a lot of good times and survived the hard times thanks to the undying support of our fans. We're looking forward to what the future may bring."

    Sincerely Fletcher, Randy, and Byron
