Yesterday on twitter, studio drummer Josh Freese (who has worked with Paramore, Devo, Sublime with Rome, and Nine Inch Nails, amongst others) announced he is no longer with A Perfect Circle. The split appears to be amiable, as there have been no signs of hard feelings between the two parties.
What makes this particularly interesting is it comes right after the announcement of some shows for APC: one in Las Vegas on December 29, and five in Australia in February and March next year.
Still no word yet on who the replacement drummer will be. Personally, let’s hope Josh isn’t bailing on APC to focus on Sublime with Rome, since Sublime with Rome officially features a whopping one member of Sublime now.
See the tweet for yourself after the jump.
After 13 years, I’ve decided to leave @aperfectcircle with no plans of returning. Apologies to those inquiring about the upcoming shows.
