Commented guitarist Patrick Pintavalle: “We’re so glad to have Jeramie back in the band. It feels right again.” Vocalist Jamie Stewart added: “In spite of everything that’s been said and done, I’m glad to have my brother back. I look forward to having our collective magic restored.”
Jeramie had this to say about once again stepping behind the kit for THE ABSENCE:
“It’s great to be back, I missed all my old friends. I can’t wait to play the new songs on tour; they are going to blow the roof off. I missed the road and I can’t wait to see all our fans out on tour. I am so pumped; it’s just great to be back.”
