4) Was Stevo’s departure already planned before you cancelled the last shows ?
Not that i knew of. He may have been thinking of it already. I’m not sure. I think we were all pretty tired and burnt out by the end of this tour. Or at least i know i was and still am. Touring can be tough after awhile.

5) How did you react when he announced it ?
I love stevo dearly. And respect him and his decision. He’s the best drummer i’ve ever played with. But i was not that surprised. I wish him all the best.

6) Can you tell us why he left ?
You would have to ask him. I won’t speak on anyone’s behalf. All i can say is, in life nothing stays the same forever. Even if it’s unfortunate. Things change people grow. Different responsibilities and goals become a factor in your decision making. At the end of the day you have to do what is best for you in your heart.
