Parkway Drive Cancel North American Tour

Parkway Drive have cancelled their spring North American tour with Hatebreed, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Stick To Your Guns. The group said “the relentless nature of being in this band has given [them] very little time to reflect on who [they] are as individuals” and that they want to use “this time for the growth that is needed.”

The band issued the following statement:

“Dear friends, family and fans,

This is something we never thought we would be writing, but we not only all believe you deserve an explanation, but we feel the need to communicate and connect with true honesty. Firstly, this is hard, please know we are fully aware that another canceled tour is not what you want to see from us, and for any expectations or plans we have messed with, we are truly sorry.

We have been doing this thing called Parkway Drive for nearly 20 years. We started as kids and never looked back. It has been a wild ride, but over those years, the relentless nature of being in this band has given us very little time to reflect on who we are as individuals, who we want to be and the toll it is taking on ourselves and our friendships. It has always been 100% commitment or nothing. We feel the limit has been reached and we don’t want to fuck this up. The same devotion that we have put into everything before, we are now putting into processing what these 20 years have done to us. With this, we aim to grow and return stronger for what is yet to come. We know what we need to do and we humbly ask for your respect while we take this time for the growth that is needed. It has been said that it is better to burn out than to fade away. We do not want either, so know that our return will burn brighter than the past.

Jeff, Luke, Ben, Jia and Winston.

p.s. We are still focused and committed to our European tour, so that will go ahead as planned in Sep/Oct 2022.”

Crown The Empire Part Ways With Drummer Brent Taddie

Crown The Empire have parted ways with drummer Brent Taddie. A replacement has yet to be revealed.

The band said the following:

“After many wonderful years of friendship, adventures, and non-stop touring together worldwide, Crown The Empire and Brent Taddie have parted ways. While it is sad for us to see Taddie leave and move on to other things in life, this decision was made amicably between the members as it was understood that people’s interests change over time. To be on a working team, everyone needs to be happy and have the same goals in mind. We wish him nothing but the best in the future with everything he does, and we know he feels the same about us.

2022 will be an exciting time for Crown The Empire and our fans; with so much more new music and touring, you can believe we have everything set up in place to allow for this all to happen without missing a beat. We love you and look forward to seeing you again (all over the world) this year.

Love,

Andy, Hayden, and Brandon Crown The Empire”

Taddie also issued his own statement:

“I would like to officially announce that after 10 amazing years I have decided to not continue forward with Crown the Empire.

When the pandemic hit in 2020, it was the first time in 10 years I had any significant amount of time away from the band. It gave me a chance to reflect and truly decide what I wanted to do with the next chapter of my life.

Crown will always have a giant place in my heart and I will cherish all the memories and everything we have done together. I will always love my brothers, Crown the Empire itself and of course all the fans reading this.

Thanks for an unforgettable 10 years.”
