The full statement is as follows:
The coming of the new year is a time for change for a lot of people. It’s the time when people have the resolve to try new things, to be rid of bad habits, or to be open to change. Well, for Tom’s Story, there will be some changes.
From this day onward, I will no longer be part of the band. I am departing for personal reasons, and will be focusing my time elsewhere.
Gabba and Degs, my brothers since time immemorial, will continue the band, and I am wishing them all the best.
I want to thank Gabba, Degs, Li, the entire Spur family, and everyone who has been with us along the way, and I will never forget the things I’ve learned and the friends I’ve made. Thank you, reader, listener, friend, for sticking around and letting me share music with you.
I will see you guys around.
The fans, who were left reeling, took to social media to ask: what is Tom’s Story without Tom?
