Die aus Alaska stammenden 36 CRAZYFISTS haben nach längerer Stille ein Statement an ihre Fans gerichtet, in dem sie einerseits den Ausstieg ihres Schlagzeugers Thomas Noonan bekanntgeben, zum anderen aber auch über die derzeit laufenden Arbeit an ihrem neuen Studioalbum sprechen:

 

"To our 36CF Family,

After much thought and discussion in the 36CF camp we have decided to break the silence and address some of the concerns that have been posted on our page.

Firstly, Our brother Thomas Noonan has decided to step away from the band. I have played music with T for over 20 yrs. He is one of my best friends so he will be sorely missed but we understand as we get older {and I mean OLDER}, life takes on new meanings. So with his decision, we wish him a tremendous amount of success in his newest adventures.

As for 36CF, we are currently working on our new album and at this point we have no release date for you guys. I have to be honest, last year was very difficult for my family as I lost my mother to cancer. From that dark period of my life, we as a band decided after 19 years of 36CF, we needed a break from the road.

As the years have rolled by, one thing I have learned throughout this band's career is that we have found ways to find new life and overcome tragedies to create something we are truly proud of. So with all of this, we are grateful and eternally indebted to all of our people for their undying loyalty and patience. We can't wait to get this record finished up and return to the road to connect once again.

With all our love and respect,
36CF"
