Relient K Drummer Moves On

Published: 2007-10-22
Dave Douglas, drummer of 7 years for the Ohio rock band Relient K, has decided to leave the band. Relient K have had a series of drummers, Dave being their 5th in 2 years, but they all commented that with Dave it was the first time they felt like a complete band.

Dave Douglas provided a letter about his departure, "I know that there have been some rumors and speculation about my future in Relient K. I suppose I should clear that up. The time has, in fact, come for me to leave the band. This has been a very difficult decision, but I know that this is the right one. Relient K has been a huge part of my life and I'm sure that it is going to take a long time to get used to not being a part of the band any more. I've had a lot of good times, met a lot of great people, and been able to go a lot of places. it's been a blessing and a pleasure to work with Matt, Matt, John, and Jon. Also, I want to thank everyone else who has been involved with the band, especially those who have been on the road with us. Our fans are amazing and I want to thank all of you for your support and enthusiasm.

I am moving on to new music projects, and I hope that I will still have all of your support. Come the first of the year I will be devoting most of my time to Gypsy Parade . Feel free to look us up and say hi. Until then I will playing with Relient K, so I've got a few more shows left in me. I suppose that this is my "farewell tour." hopefully I, and the rest of Relient K, will see you at one of them. Thanks to all of you."

Dave's last show with Relient K will be on December 29, 2007.
