Bassist Devin Ingelido announced this evening that he is leaving VersaEmerge. The two remaining members, Sierra Kusterbeck and Blake Harnage also expressed that there are absolutely no hard feelings over his departure and that they support his decision. They stated that they will still tour Europe later this year as planned for their first overseas headliner.
Message from Devin:
"Four years and many memories later, it has finally come time for me to throw in my tour towel. Recently I married the love of my life and witnessed the birth of my son and find it harder and harder to leave the two most amazing things in my life. As a band we have accomplished so many things together and in no way will I regret how far we have grown as a band. With that being said, I encourage each and every one of you to continue to support Blake and Sierra through the rest of their musical endeavors as VersaEmerge. Despite me leaving I know deep in my heart that Versa will continue to translate their perspective on life and transcribe it into the amazing sounds you know and latch on to. Thank you all for all the support, love, and on going excitement you have shown the band and I through all the things that tried to bring us down. And as for me.. I will continue to pursue being the best husband and father and the rest will fall into place. God Bless!
