Tom Shear Leaves Polaroid Kiss
Sorry to have to start the week off on a down note, but I am officially announcing my departure form Polaroid Kiss – the latest in a long line of ex-members to do so.  Approximately a week a go, we held an “online listening party” for the band’s new single.  Not long thereafter, I started receiving messages from various people who had worked with Brandun in the past, all of whom had some very damning accusations to make.  Despite the fact that all of these people independently were telling me the same stories, I wanted to be sure of their legitimacy and did some independent confirmation on my own.  Suffice it to say, after confirming these things, I could no longer in good conscience be involved in the band.
That’s all I care to say for now.   I feel that I have already wasted too much of my time on this and prefer to move on to newer and better things.   If for any reason, anyone needs further info (especially whoever is left in the band at this point, or others Brandun has approached about doing work), you may contact me privately.
 Thank You, Europe!
A belated thank you to everyone who came out to support us on our European tour last month.  It was, without a doubt, one of the most fun tours we’ve had in Europe and the enthusiasm from the fans was amazing!  We even played a couple Surveillance songs live, which was a blast!
