Florida punk rockers Against Me! are down a member as bassist Andrew Seward has decided to quit the band.

Seward broke the news on his Twitter page earlier today (May 2), stating that there were no hard feelings. The musician apparently has different priorities that don’t involve Against Me! anymore. See his tweet below.

Against Me! posted an official statement on their website confirming that no bad blood is between the two parties. “It’s been an honor and privilege to stand on stage with Andrew for the past 10 years,” guitarist James Bowan wrote. “I am sad to see him go, but I wish nothing but the best for him moving forward.”

Lead singer Laura Jane Grace also shared similar sentiments:

It’s heartbreaking to know that Andrew won’t be standing next to me out on stage the next time I stand upon one. Andrew’s been a solid partner. Some of the best sleep I’ve ever gotten has been in the back of a 15 passenger van with him behind the wheel. He’s got a steady hand and has always been someone I’ve trusted. The definition of a good friend. I wish him all the best in his journey.

Seward’s departure leaves Against Me! with only two active members. Drummer Jay Weinberg left the band last December. The group is currently working on their sixth studio album Transgender Dysphoria Blues, a concept album relating to Grace’s experience as a transgender. The musician broke the news in 2012, shedding her former identity as Tom Gabel.
