Earlier this week we reported on the news that We Are The Ocean vocalist Dan Brown had left the band.
Dan has contacted Kerrang! to issue his own official statement on the matter:
"I'd like to firstly apologise to all the fans for my swift departure from We Are The Ocean," says Dan.
"I have been managing the band for the past two years and I've come to the realisation that, quite frankly, I'm better at managing a band than I am at being in a band, so it's time for me to attack that head first."
"Thank you for making my journey so incredible. You guys pay our bills, pay for studio time and put petrol in our van. No band should ever lose sight of that."
