The guys–Wesley Stromberg, Keaton Stromberg, and Drew Chadwick–took to their official website to announce that Drew will no longer be in the band. He is currently working on a solo career and is expecting to drop an album later this year.
Emblem3 will still continue to release new music and tour. For all the latest on Emblem3, you can follow the band on Twitter @EmblemThree.
Official Statement below. Are YOU sad Drew is no longer in the band?
We have an important announcement to make. While we regret sharing this news, we as a group need to share that Drew has decided to move forward in pursuit of his solo career and will no longer be with Emblem3 or joining us on The Fireside Story Sessions. We’re sad to see Drew go but he will always be our brother, and we couldn’t be happier for him as he starts his new journey as a solo artist. If you’d like to stay updated on Drew’s solo album and news tune into Drew’s Twitter/Instagram and his YouTube channel for an announcement on June 27th regarding his new album. Drew sends hugs out to all the Emblems.
We know many of you may be concerned about what this means for Emblem3, but I can assure you this is just the beginning! Me and Keaton started this band when we were 9 and 11 years old and we will continue making music for our fans. We love you with all our heart. E3 has always been about a partnership of likeminded musicians and we’re committed to continuing this journey alongside you all. And who knows, you may also start seeing some very familiar faces popping up :).
We’ve been working tirelessly on new material and have so much of the new record to share with you on The Fireside Story Sessions starting next week! It’s gonna be so much fun and we can’t wait to hang around the campfire with you. I bet Keatons probably going to eat too many marshmallows and get sick. Anyway, we can’t wait to see you all there. Stay tuned for updates on the new album and if you want a sneak peak, come see us this summer ;).
