The Word Alive has announced that bassist Nick Urlacher will be parting ways with the band. The official statement can be read under the cut as well as a link to audition information.
This is hard to start off. What are the right words to say goodbye to a family of friends, family and fans who have changed your life for the last 3 years of your life? A simple goodbye wouldn’t suffice. Yet a long drawn out one would be too much.
I’ve decided to leave The Word Alive my friends. This decision doesn’t come easy, by any means of the word. The other 5 members have been my road family and home family for what feels like an eternity. We had the best of times and the worst of times, but we were together playing music and touring the country together. We’re friends who will always be there for one another no matter the price.
This period of my life has changed me in ways that I would have never imagined! I found myself out on that lonely road with them.
I will miss all of our friends, family and fans I’ve had the utmost pleasure and honor to meet along my travels with The Word Alive.
My life journey hasn’t ended and neither will the band. This band will accomplish so much and Ill be proud of them for all the progress they are GOING to make.
Peace, Love, Farewell,
