The Human Abstract's Singer Quits
Travis Richter, of the Los Angeles post-hardcore group The Human Abstract, has abruptly quit the band for good. Speculation about Richter's departure has been floating around recently but was only confirmed by the band this week. Early rumours cited that Richter was unable to leave his girlfriend for any extended period of time while touring. However, Richter has now released a statement of his own. You can read his little blurb below. Ryan Delvin (Corelia) will be filling the position for the time being.
"A couple months ago I told the guys I wasn't going to tour anymore for a couple reasons. One, I'm turning 30 and have given all my time to bands and the road, and I want to be able to start a family and see my parents and grandparents more. Secondly, I graduated with an audio production degree, and I feel myself being pulled into that world as more of a full time position. I think The Human Abstract is an amazingly gifted group of musicians with mind bending potential and I couldn't thank them enough for everything they've done for me since I joined the band in feb of 2010. The fans have also been more than amazing and accepted me into the THA family, and for that I sincerely thank you!"
