The Grounds are embarking on the first leg of their summer tour dates, into Western Canada
Long time band member and guitarist for Versus the Nothing, Chris Shaw, has made the tough choice to step down as the band prepares to carry on. Chris posted this statement on the band’s Facebook page a few days ago:
“Hey Everyone! Chris here. I regret to inform you all that the July 6th show @ Joe’s Apartment with be my last with Versus the Nothing.
After seven years, three albums, numourous tours, memorable shows and many other memories and experiences I hold close to my heart, I feel it is time to step down. It was a VERY tough decision for me to make but was needed as the band is going full steam in one direction as my life is going in another. I love the guys like brothers and all you fans are like family to me which I will always cherish.
With that being said, I hope everyone can come out on July 6th for my last emotional ride with Versus the Nothing.
Much love to everyone! See you next Friday @ Joe’s Apartment.
Having worked with Versus the Nothing for 3 years and several tours, this is a very bittersweet moment for myself and SIN Agency. Personally and all here at SIN wish Chris all the best and the brightest in his future and he will always be called friend.
Please join Chris and the band at Joe’s Apartment for his farewell show:
