Stray From The Path Announce New Drummer

Stray From The Path have parted ways with drummer Dan Bourke. Taking his place in the group will be Craig Reynolds (ex-The HAARP Machine).

Stray From The Path would like to welcome long time friend and ridiculous drummer, Craig Reynolds, to our team. Dan has decided to move on and has stepped down as the drummer of Stray. Craig has been with us this on the STYG European tour, the chemistry on and off stage was present right away and we cannot wait to bring this new life into the band. Lots of exciting stuff coming up soon for us. Tour coming up in North America this spring and soon hitting countries we have never been to before. Dan brought this band to another level 6 or 7 years ago, and we wouldn't be where we are today without him. As excited we are for the new era with Craig, we will miss Dan and forever be grateful for the dedication and exceptional drumming he gave the 3 of us and all of our supporters world wide over 4 albums. Come see Dan play his final show with us at @sowhatmusicfest and show him some love one last time.

Stray From The Path Premiere New Song “D.I.E.P.I.G.”

Stray From The Path have premiered a new song titled “D.I.E.P.I.G.,” via Alternative Press. This song is from the band’s new album, Subliminal Criminals, which will be released on August 14.

Thomas Williams said the track is about sexual predators that live within the music industry. You can read more of his thoughts on that below:

“To me, there is nothing more sacred than a person who supports music. When you come to see a Stray From The Path show at, let’s say, the Gramercy Theater in NYC, and you purchase a record, a ticket, a t-shirt, a beer and check your coat. Whatever it may be, that stimulates the industry. That means that my band makes more records which gives vinyl and CD plants more work, gives our producer and engineers more work, gives our record label more work, gives a PR company more work.

It means that my band goes on tour, which gives a promoter work, our booking agent more work, a venue work, security more work, our merch guy is working, our sound guy is working, our merch company is working, all the way down to the bartenders and the coat check. That’s a huge chain reaction stemming from one person thinking “I love this band” and it gives a lot of people very special to us a life doing what they love to do.

When you fuck with that, you fuck with Stray. There are quite a few people that took it all for granted, and used their fortunate positions to take advantage of young females. I think this all came to light with us when Ian Watkins of Lostprophets committed unbelievable acts on infants.

If you can be a musician for a living, that’s the lottery. I think that when you take advantage of the people that support the music, you should lose your privilege to play. People can apologize (or not even apologize if you’re Front Porch Step) and to me, that is a step in the right direction.

However, you should lose your privilege to have this life that people would literally kill for. I appreciate all supporters of music, even if it’s a person who hates Stray, but loves Mastodon or Silverstein or whatever, and those bands are playing El Corazon in Seattle, a venue that Stray loves, you are important to us also. It is all connected.

If people want to accept you and bring you back, fine, it wouldn’t be the first time. But you will always be on the team with people who do not deserve being back in fortunate lifestyles, captained by Michael Vick and Jonny Craig.”
