Devon Carothers has announced his departure from Texas Hippie Coalition. The drummer says he is “going to take a break from playing for a little while to deal with some personal things.”
Carothers said the following:
“I’ve enjoyed my time playing with Texas Hippie Coalition over the past few years but the time has come for me to part ways with the other members of the band. This is a decision made on both ends. I’m going to take a break from playing for a little while to deal with some personal things in my life because it’s starting to come between my duties to the band and I feel it’s not fair to the THC members and crew for me to not be able to give them my all. I love each and every one I’ve played with and the people I’ve met in my time with the band. I wish the band the best and can’t wait to see what they do in the years to come. Thanks to the THC family for taking care of us on the road and all of the great times. Thanks again for everything!
He later added:
“I’ve received some messages since posting this and I didn’t want anyone to be concerned about me. This is more about making a life change, and not about anything going wrong in my life.”
