Mushroomhead is gearing up for a bustling tour this spring. Unfortunately, it will be happening with or without Jeffrey Hatrix (aka Jeffrey Nothing), who is a co-founder of the band.
"I am coming to you today with a heavy heart to announce that I am leaving Mushroomhead," Hatrix expressed in a statement. "It is a decision that I did not make easily, but one I made for reasons that are best for me as an artist and musician at this juncture in my career."
Hatrix thanked “the craziest, fucking loyal and amazing fans” for the “once in a lifetime privilege” of receiving such devotion and appreciation.
This isn't the bands first lineup change. In 2015, former vocalist Waylon Reavis left the band. Jackie LaPonza joined as a touring member in recent years, providing vocals for the band. Nonetheless, drummer Steve “Skinny” Felton will be the lone member from the initial crew that kick started the band in 1993. With Hatrix’s departure, J. Mann will assume lone vocal duties.
There will be a one-off show March 17th at Music Lynxx in Mentor-on-the-Lake, Ohio before commencing with their tour schedule in April. Dates for the tour can be seen below.
