Train drummer Scott Underwood has announced that he's leaving the band after 20 years. He posted the news on the band's Facebook page Thursday night.
Although he gave no reason for his departure, it appears to be amicable. He calls his former bandmatesPat Monahan and Jimmy Stafford "my brothers" and says he'll "always be grateful to...them." The bulk of the letter, however, thanks the band's fans.
Underwood says he's "really excited about" his future, which will include "writing, producing, collaborating, and drumming. There are so many possibilities out there, so many forms of music I want to explore, and so many people I look forward to meeting." He also plans on "coming out to the occasional Train show to make sure they’re toeing the line! Kidding… Pat, Jimmy and their amazing band will never disappoint."
Train's new single, "Angel in Blue Jeans," will hit the airwaves on Monday. It's the first track from their still-unnamed seventh studio album, which is expected to be released in September.
