Andy “The Butcher” Mrotek talks about leaving TAI

Andy “The Butcher” Mrotek, ex-drummer for The Academy Is… talks to Alternative Press about his departure from the band. He is going to focus on his new project The Animal Upstairs and plan on releasing music in October:

Your Bandcamp site says we might be able to expect new music in October?

Actually, I was picking Halloween just to pick a date. I was planning to record in June, but that got pushed back because of new songs we were working on, and I didn’t want to put a cap on [the writing process]. I thought it would be an EP, but with all the new songs coming out after the demos we’ve put up, it feels more like a full-length, and even the message is becoming much more congealed than I expected. So October to me seemed like a good distance away where I could get a good deal of work done and actually track and mix and master this record and have a whole roll out.
