Regarding Andrew's departure from Fallujah.
Though I am sad that my musical partner of 15 years is stepping away, I support my brother in any decision he makes to improve his life. I've never felt more musically connected to anyone in my life, so naturally, this has been difficult. Andrew will always have a place in this project we built together, and I'll hold out hope that we will create music together again. That being said, I'd love to address my endless inbox of messages asking what will happen next and I'll say this...There is a reason why by the time I was 30 I had already written and recorded 5 full-length albums and 2 eps. The same reason why after 20 years of playing music I still pick up my guitar every day and continue the work. I live through music and it lives through me. It goes beyond love and passion. If I'm breathing, I am creating. For many or for nobody, it's what I do.
Big love to everyone who has stuck with us through this journey. I'm knee-deep in new material that the team and I can't wait to show you. Come to my twitch tonight if you want to talk. 🖤 Scott Carstairs

Damn big loss, saw them live with Psycroptic last year, put on a hell of a show and the drumming was impressive.
